UFC light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson will hold true to his word, as “The Mauler” appears headed for a collision with Strikeforce import Gegard Mousasi. MMAViking.com is reporting that the two will meet on April 6 at UFC on Fuel TV 9.
The card is expected to take place from Stockholm, Sweden’s Ericcson Globe Arena. The site also played host to a UFC card this past April, with Gustafsson defeating Thiago Silva in the main event.
Gustafsson (15-1) was tentatively named the No. 1 contender to the title after besting Mauricio “Shogun” Rua this past December. However, the belt is currently locked up through April as Jon Jones waits to defend against Chael Sonnen.
Mousasi (33-3-2) is unbeaten in his last six, going 5-0-1, and is 20-1-1 since 2006. He signed with the UFC after Strikeforce closed following a January card.
