Gustafsson Out, Latifi Steps in to UFC on Fuel 9 Fight with Mousasi

Posted on 04 April 2013 by Hobson Lopes

With their hands tied by the Swedish MMA Federation, the Ultimate Fighting Championship was forced to remove Swedish fighter Alexander Gustafsson from the UFC on Fuel 9 main event. Gustafsson, a rising contender in the UFC light heavyweight division with a 15-1 record, including 7-1 inside the Octagon, was set to take on former Strikeforce champion, Gegard Mousasi. Instead, the main event slot will be filled by Ilir “The Sledgehammer” Latifi after Gustafsson suffered a cut during the Easter weekend that will not allow him to be sanctioned to fight.
