Gegard Mousasi calls out Tim Kennedy after chest hair suspicion


UFC middleweight contender Gegard Mousasi is one of the nicest guys in mixed martial arts and he carries that kindness with him when it comes to discussing his plans for his next fight.

Following his dominating win over Mark Munoz last weekend, Mousasi said that he simply wants to fight someone who is coming off of a win.

Now, he has a name for a potential opponent after calling another top-ten fighter out on social media.

Mousasi caught wind of comments made by Tim Kennedy, who always has some hilarious comments on his Twitter account, before answering the call and saying he would be willing to step inside of the Octagon for a fight.

How did it all start?

Comments about chest hair.

Seriously.

Mousasi responded:

Not only does the fight make sense rankings wise, but Mousasi vs. Kennedy would also be a fight of former Strikeforce champions.

If the two men do face off, the winner could find themselves just one win away from a title shot.

It is a booking that would make sense for Mousasi, Kennedy, the UFC and the fans.
