Friendly reminder to all you gamblers out there, “UFC on FUEL TV: Mousasi vs. Latifi” will be going off bright and early this morning in Sweden. The first scrap starts at 10:50AM ET/7:50 AM PT, so make sure to place your bets in time.
I understand the card’s main event isn’t what it was supposed to be, thanks to Alexander Gustafsson’s eyebrow gash, but a fight’s a fight. Or as Wanderlei Silva tweeted, “Fight is fight.”
Gegard Mousasi (pictured) now headlines the gig opposite little known Ilir Latifi. Mousasi is an overwhelming 14-to-1 odds-on favorite to steamroll the last-minute substitute.
Latifi, meanwhile, is pegged as a 7-to-1 underdog.
