    Default Alexander Gustafsson gets title shot if victorious in UFC on FUEL TV 9 headliner

    Alexander Gustafsson gets title shot if victorious in UFC on FUEL TV 9 headliner | News

    Alexander Gustafsson's path to a shot at the UFC light-heavyweight title apparently has just one more step.

    If victorious against Gegard Mousasi in the headliner of April's UFC on FUEL TV 9 event, the Swedish fighter will got a long-coveted title fight, UFC President Dana White said today while in London.

    UFC on FUEL TV 9 takes place April 6 at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm. Gustafsson (15-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) vs. Mousasi (33-3-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC), which headlines the FUEL TV-televised main card, marks Mousasi's promotional debut, though the former DREAM and Strikeforce champion is a stellar 20-1-1 over the past seven years.

    "If Mousasi beats Gustafsson, he skyrockets right to the top of that division," White said. "And as far as Gustafsson goes, if he beats Mousasi in that fight, he's in line for a title shot.

    "This is a big fight for both of those guys."

    dana saying "he's in line for a title shot" is by no means stating he has the next crack at it though. If Hendo stops Machida I think Dana would have hard time not jumping on that fight instead.

    Not going to take this too seriously. His fight with Shogun was also supposed to be for a title shot. Also, I would be very disappointing if the winner of Hendo/Machida does not get an immediate shot at the title. The winner of this fight should then get a true number one contender fight, perhaps against Grover from sesame street.

    Have no interest to see a guy nicknamed Hollywood (due to his entertaining fights and style) fight the lhw champ but have and avatar of a women fighter.... interesting

    Hendo is not breaking any rules. He is a legend.

    I'm not a big fan of TRT in MMA, or any other sport for that matter, but at least Hendo is old, and from what I understand the drug was intended for old people. It seems a bit worse to me if someone is like 24 and using it. Or getting caught with too high of levels in the prime of their careers. As far as I know Hendo has never been tested while "pumped full of TRT", whatever that means.

    Maybe he's just treating his low libido and erectile dysfunction, and he just happens to be a mixed martial artists. I'm cool with it as long as you follow the guidelines.
    I hope this post doesn't creep out Sakara=Excitement.
