UFC on FUEL TV 9Is Alexander Gustafsson fighting this Saturday at UFC on FUEL TV 9 or is he not, that seems to be the burning question right now. The Swede is schedule to face Gegard Mousasi in Stockholm, Sweden as the UFC on FUEL TV 9 main event but reports have been swirling the bout is in jeopardy due to a cut suffered by Gustafsson.

The UFC says the fight is still on for Saturday, the Swedish Mixed Martial Arts Federation (SMMAF) disagrees, while a third player to the game says the fight is off and he’s fighting Mousasi…..

Wanderlei Silva said via his Twitter account today that he is fighting Mousasi on Saturday and he later confirmed this with GracieMag.com. News reached Mousasi who used Twitter say if Silva is stepping in for Gustafsson, he accepts the fight.

The UFC website still has Gustafsson in the UFC on FUEL TV 9 main event so as of right now it’s “Game On” but they is a seriously large question mark hanging over the fight.

Will Alexander Gustafsson fight on Saturday?

Will Gegard Mousasi end up fighting Wanderlei Silva instead?

Or did the axe murderer seize the opportunity and have a little “April Fool’s” fun?

With UFC on FUEL TV 9 just days away, these questions will be answered very soon……….

[Update 4/2/13 8:15am] The question mark is still there but we now know that the axe murderer was in fact having some April Fool’s fun yesterday. Well played Mr. Silva………..

[Update 4/3/13] The Swedish commission would not allow Alexander Gustafsson to fight and after a mad scramble for a replacement, the UFC announced that Llir Latifi will step in and fight Gegard Mousasi at UFC on FUEL TV 9.
