Following the injury to Alexander Gustafsson, the UFC pulled his teammate Ilir Latifi in to face Gegard Mousasi in the main event at UFC on FUEL TV 9 in Sweden this Saturday night.
Obviously “The Dreamcatcher” is not a happy camper about not facing Gustafsson and feels that he definitely has a lot to lose against Latifi.
Our friend Paul Del Valle over at Kimura.se had the chance to catch up with Mousasi after he found out about the switch.
“People don’t tell me anything so a lot of stuff I find out on the Internet like normal people. I’m just glad Latifi took the fight and at least I have a fight. He’s more of a wrestler, Gustafsson is more of a striker. I’m just gonna fight the same but with different tactics. I’m gonna try to finish the fight any way I can, that’s what I’m gonna do from the start. It’s a high-risk fight. I don’t have a lot to gain. Against Gustafsson, I had number one spot maybe, a little closer to a title shot. This is a fight that I have a lot to lose.”
