With a cut above Alexander Gustafsson’s eyebrow setting the main event of this Saturday’s UFC on FUEL TV 9 occasion into question, it appears as though a veteran fighter is going to step up and fill in the void if Gustafsson’s scheduled fight against Gegard Mousasi can not go on. Wanderlei Silva, that conquered Brian Stann via knockout at UFC on FUEL TV 9 last month, tweeted now the UFC telephoned him about taking the fight against Mousasi last weekend, which he’s accepted and will be departing for Sweden early Tuesday morning. confirmed with Silva what he tweeted was not an April Fool’s joke, and that he has packed his bags for Sweden and will be taking Rafael Cordeiro and Fabricio Werdum with him to be in his corner that weekend. But, as demonstrated by a tweet from UFC president Dana White, the struggle with Gustafsson and Mousasi is still happening, although it’s been reported by numerous Swedish news outlets that the struggle is 99 percent likely to be cancelled because the cut over Gustafsson’s forehead is poor enough that the Swedish MMA Federation has threatened to pull the plug on the struggle. In the event the Gustafsson vs. Mousasi fight doesn’t occur, then the scheduled co-main event is a lightweight conflict involving Ross Pearson and Ryan Couture and that fight definitely isn’t main event caliber. However, a fight between Mousasi and Silva — although not incorporating a Swedish fighter inside — is still an superb bout and the lovers that have paid for their tickets to the event ought to be happy if this is indeed the switch. In case Mousasi vs. Silva becomes the new main event of UFC on FUEL TV 9, expect Mousasi to start as a healthful -250 favorite, with all the comeback on Silva being from the +200 range. Camozzi Fills In For Dollaway Against Mutante At UFC About FX 8 An accident to CB Dollaway has forced him out of his forthcoming UFC on FX 8 struggle against TUF Brazil winner Cezar Mutante, also at his position steps Chris Camozzi, who conquered Nick Ring via split decision at UFC 158 only two weeks ago. The fight, which takes place May 18 at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, will occur on the evening’s most important card. Camozzi (19-5) has looked great as of late, picking up four-straight successes over Ring, Luiz Cane, Nick Catone, and Dustin Jacoby to emerge as a darkhorse contender in the UFC middleweight division. The 28-year-old has made continuous improvements to his game because his time „The Ultimate Fighter“ and yet another triumph, which could be five row, could push up him the middleweight ranks. Mutante (5-2) won TUF Brazil last June in UFC 147 when he defeated Sergio Moraes. However, he has been out with accidents since. Mutante will be coming off a lengthy layoff going to this bout with Camozzi, that has 30 minutes of cage time since Mutante’s final appearance, and that will likely prove to be a large disadvantage. Anticipate this struggle to be rather close from the betting chances, but it wouldn’t be surprising at all to watch Camozzi as the favorite for once, even though he’ll be fighting in Mutante’s backyard in Brazil and even thought Mutante has much more hype surrounding him.
