Onetime Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi wants your input. He's thinking of dropping down:

At 6-foot-1, he isn't an overwhelmingly large light heavyweight. Most of Mousasi's career has been at 205 lbs., but he did win the 2008 DREAM Grand Prix at 185 lbs with a win over Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in the final.

Mousasi won his UFC debut, but it was hardly memorable. His original opponent, Alexander Gustafsson, was replaced in the last minute by Ilir Latifi, and we found out after the fight Mousasi was dealing with an injury. Perhaps it is the right move.

Do you think Mousasi should drop down to middleweight? Speak up in the comments, on Facebook or on Twitter.
