The UFC will head to Sweden on Saturday for UFC on Fuel 9. The card will not feature the main event that was originally booked, as Alexander Gustafsson was forced from his headlining bout against Gegard Mousasi after sustaining a cut while training.
UFC newcomer Ilir Latifi will step in to take Gustafsson’s place. When Latifi enters the Octagon, he will look to pull off one of the largest upsets in UFC history when he faces former Strikeforce champion Mousasi.
The card’s co-main event will feature a familiar last name, as Ryan Couture, son of UFC Hall of Famer Randy, makes his UFC debut against Season 9 winner of The Ultimate Fighter Ross Pearson.
In all, the card will feature 13 bouts, seven of which will be streamed on the UFC’s Facebook page. The main Fuel card will feature six fights.
The fighters will weigh in on Friday at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT and Bleacher Report will have the results of those weigh-ins as they happen. Be sure to check back for full results as they happen.
