The cut does not look bad and it did only require three stitches. If Gustafsson could have fought safely then the Swedish fans got robbed, plain and simple. It is to bad this fight got pulled since it was clear that Gustafsson wanted to compete but commissions are in place to protect the fighters, and sometimes it is from themselves. Even if the cut looks fine now it is still probably very vulnerable to being reopened. Being cut in a fight is no big deal and I’m sure a risk Alexander would be more than willing to take, but the decision has already been made. Hopefully Gustafsson can get a fight soon so that he does not waste a training camp. Dana White is obviously upset with the decision and who can blame him. This is a huge blow to this card and now he owes the Swedish fans. Still the UFC did everything it could given the circumstances, this is just the fight game. It will not be the last time a fighter gets right before a bout.
