Having a cut over Alexander Gustafsson’s eyebrow setting the major event of this Saturday’s UFC on FUEL TV 9 event into question, it seems like a veteran fighter is going to step up and fill the void if Gustafsson’s scheduled struggle against Gegard Mousasi can’t go on. Wanderlei Silva, who defeated Brian Stann via knockout at UFC on FUEL TV 9 last month, tweeted today that the UFC telephoned him about taking the struggle against Mousasi this past weekend, and that he’s accepted and will be departing for Sweden early Tuesday morning. TATAME.com confirmed with Silva what he tweeted wasn’t an April Fool’s joke, and that he’s already packed his bags to Sweden and will probably be carrying Rafael Cordeiro and Fabricio Werdum with him to maintain his corner that weekend. However, according to a tweet from UFC president Dana White, the fight with Gustafsson and Mousasi is still going on, although it’s been reported by numerous Swedish news outlets that the fight is 99 percent going to be cancelled because the cut over Gustafsson’s forehead is poor enough the Swedish MMA Federation has threatened to pull the plug in the fight. In the event the Gustafsson vs. Mousasi fight does not occur, then the scheduled co-main occasion is a lightweight battle involving Ross Pearson and Ryan Couture and that fight definitely is not main event caliber. But a fight between Mousasi and Silva — while not featuring a Swedish fighter in it — remains an excellent bout and the fans who have paid for their tickets to the event ought to be happy if that is really the change. If Mousasi vs. Silva becomes the new main event of UFC on FUEL TV 9, anticipate Mousasi to start as a healthful -250 favorite, together with the comeback on Silva being from the +200 range. Camozzi Fills In For Dollaway Against Mutante At UFC About FX 8 An accident to CB Dollaway has forced him out of his forthcoming UFC on FX 8 fight against TUF Brazil winner Cezar Mutante, and at his place measures Chris Camozzi, who defeated Nick Ring via split decision at UFC 158 only two weeks ago. The fight, which takes place May 18 in Arena Jaragua at Jaragua do Sul, will occur on the evening’s main card. Camozzi (19-5) has appeared great as of late, picking up four-straight successes over Ring, Luiz Cane, Nick Catone, and Dustin Jacoby to emerge as a darkhorse contender in the UFC middleweight division. The 28-year-old has made continuous improvements to his game because his time “The Ultimate Fighter” and another triumph, which would be five row, could push him way up the middleweight rankings. Mutante (5-2) won TUF Brazil past June at UFC 147 when he defeated Sergio Moraes. But he has been out with accidents since. Mutante will soon be coming off a lengthy layoff going into this bout with Camozzi, who has 30 minutes of cage period since Mutante’s final appearance, and that will probably prove to be a large drawback. Anticipate this struggle to be rather close in the betting chances, but it wouldn’t be surprising at all to see Camozzi as the preferred for after, even though he will be fighting in Mutante’s garden in Brazil and even thought Mutante has much more hype surrounding him.
