Last night Wanderlei Silva told MMA Weekly that he was fighting Gegard Mousasi on Saturday and the respected news site reported that information. Well apparently that was all an April fools joke to the Axe Murderer and he will not be facing the former Strikeforce champ. Love Wandy but probably not the best joke to play since it could hurt the reputation of websites when they publish information which turns out to be false.

Should Wanderlei have done this? It’s debatable but he probably should not have lied to a media outlet about being a replacement. That being said it was April fools and he got everyone. Wandy is a legend and he can get a way with a lot more than this and still be loved by all. Shout out to Intravid for the find.

The news of an Alexander Gustaffson cut during training has led to reports that the Swede is OUT of his UFC on Fuel TV 9 main event bout with Gegard Mousasi, who is making his UFC debut. Yes, this led to some deep introspection and we chucked a few prayers God’s way hoping that this wasn’t true, and now we are hearing reports that Gustaffson may be ready to fight.
Lost in the madness of Alexander Gustafsson’s abrupt exit from Saturday’s main event against Gegard Mousasi (pictured) with an eyebrow gash and Ilir Latifi’s last-second substitution status is the fact Mousasi dedicated several months of his life preparing and focusing solely on Gustafsson.
