Mousasi revealed on "The MMA Hour" that he isn’t in a hurry to step back into the cage; in fact, he likely won’t resume fighting until March of next year. And when the time comes, he’d prefer to face Luke Rockhold in what will mark the final fight of his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contract.

He wants a big win so he can negotiate when it comes to signing another contract. Not a bad move.

Not a bad move at all.

I wouldn't mind seeing Mousasi/Rockhold. I know Jacare/Rockhold is the one that most are looking at though.

Whoever doesn't get the Rockhold fight should face the winner of this weekends main event between Brunson/Whittaker. Then whoever has the most impressive win out of those fights gets the next title shot and the other winner can either wait or take another fight in the meantime.
