News spread Easter Sunday that UFC on Fuel TV 9 Main event Alexander GustafssonÂ vs. Gegard Mousasi would be cancelled this Saturday due to a facial laceration Gustafson suffered in training. UFC president Dana White cleared the air later that day as he texted MMAfighting.com’s Ariel Helwani and said, “The [Swedish Mixed Martial Arts Federation] has not said he can’t fight, and he wants to fight,”
Previous reports explained that a length of three to four weeks was needed for the cut to properly heal. According to White, the fight is still on. UFC on Fuel TV 9 is set to take place in Stockholm, Sweden.
