Questions Heading into UFC on Fuel 9: Gustafsson vs. Mousasi
There has been a great deal of hand-wringing surrounding this card since main event fighter Alexander Gustafsson reportedly suffered a cut during training that seemingly put his bout against Gegard Mousasi in jeopardy. However, according to UFC president Dana White, as of now, the fight is still on.
As such, we'll proceed as if things are rolling along as planned, but I know that I'll still have a seed of doubt in my mind until I see both fighters enter the Octagon on Saturday, April 6 in Sweden.
The biggest questions facing the UFC right now revolve around the main event. Will the card remain intact, and if not, what's the next step for the UFC?
Can you try and find a replacement on such short notice? Will the Swedish crowd feel just a wee bit let down if hometown fighter Gustafsson is not fighting? Can the promotion even think about elevating the co-main event between Ross Pearson and Ryan Couture to main event status?
Beside those questions, here are a handful of others facing the UFC and the fighters that will compete on the April 6 UFC on Fuel 9 fight card.
