    Gus and Gegard are both young contenders.
    Due to where they are situated in the ranking, but I forgot this was the UFC we were talking about.

    Why don't I like it?

    Same reason I didn't want to see Cain and JDS fight immediately and preferred the time the UFC spent building them up with people equal to their ranking.

    Gus' name value would increase much more if were he to fight another of Shogun's calibur, rather than Mousasi who does not have a large following of casuals.

    #4 vs. #11 doesn't make much sense.

    Lil Nog, Hendo, Evans or Bader would have made more sense.

    Those are some good odds for Gegard. Might throw down some money on this. Brain says Gus, but the gut says Mousassi. Fight really could go either way, IMO.

    Gustafsson vs. Mousasi to be 5 rounder, plus Gustafsson opens as the favorite

    UFC on Fuel TV 9: Gustafsson vs. Mousasi to be 5 rounder - Bloody Elbow



    Rest easy MMA fans, the Light Heavyweight top contenders bout between Alexander Gustafsson and Gegard Mousasi that headlines UFC on Fuel TV 9 will be a full 5 round bout rather than a mere 3 rounder. The event takes place in Stockholm, Sweden on April 6. The news was broken by Kimura.Se who got the news from George Sallfeldt, chairman of the Swedish MMA Federation.

    Here's a Google translation of Sallfeldt's statement:

    Being able to arrange a match in the title length at home is obviously a big deal for SMMAF. However, it is important to remember that this decision does not mean that the overall match time for MMA matches increases. Even in the future, 3-rounds matches will be the norm for professional fights.
    The SMMAF had to get the approval of the Martial Arts Delegation of the County Board of Orebro to secure the extra two rounds for the Gustafsson vs. Mousasi bout. It is the norm for bouts headlining UFC cards to be 5 rounds.
