Gegard Mousasi says it's none of his business, but he'd prefer to see Fedor stay at heavyweight rather than move down as has been speculated.  In an interview with Ariel Helwani, Mousasi said:

 

He's known for being the king of heavyweights, so it doesn't make sense to go to light heavweight.  He's always known as the best heavyweight....for me I'd rather see him as a heavyweight.

Gegard also talked about Fedor's evolution as a fighter, saying that Fedor was perhaps too loyal to his trainers, which kept him from developing:

 

He's training more on his standup...and jiu-jitsu. I think he's a loyal guy, a good heart, and he's always loyal to his trainers. And I think that kept him from developing to a better fighter. In his time he was the best, but now I think the fighters now have developed better. And now he's more open to training at other  places and I think that is going to do him well. He's always a top ten fighter and he always can [beat] anybody.

Mousasi takes on Keith Jardine tomorrow night in a fight that probably won't go to the ground.  Gegard is on a two fight win streak after his loss to King Mo Lawal and says that he has improved both his wrestling and his stand up against wrestling.  Here's the complete video interview.
