Alexander Gustafsson vs. Gegard Mousasi slated for April in Sweden - MMA Fighting
It appears as though Alexander Gustafsson will be the first to welcome Gegard Mousasi to the UFC.
Gustafsson and Mousasi have verbally agreed to meet on April 6 in Sweden. The event is expected to be dubbed UFC on FUEL TV 9. MMAFighting.com confirmed the story with one source earlier in the week, and Swedish MMA Web site Kimura.se is reporting Gustafsson announced the fight at a gym opening in Sweden on Saturday.
This will mark the UFC's second trip to Sweden. UFC on FUEL TV 2, also headlined by Gustafsson, was held in Stockholm, Sweden last April, and the sold-out event was a rousing success. The same report states UFC on FUEL TV 9 will also be held at Stockholm's Ericsson Globe Arena.
UFC Quick Quote: Alexander Gustafsson has 'no doubt' he will defeat Gegard Mousasi
"Gegard is by far the most dangerous opponent so far, no question he's young, he's hungry and he has a lot of fight experience, so it's going to be interesting to see. I can't wait to fight in my hometown in front of my home audience against a top guy like that, so, I'm very happy...I will win the fight, no doubt, I will win the fight. And how I will win? It's not going to be a decision, that's for sure because two decisions like in a row now is too much. I want to have a finish, I want to go for a finish, I want a finish and I'm going to win the fight no doubt. But Gegard is the toughest opponent so far, so it's going to be a great fight and a great camp."
