Gegard Mousasi “Accepts” Match With Wanderlei Silva If On Table

Gegard Mousasi isn’t wasting any time in accepting a short-notice fight with Wanderlei Silva, if it is presented to him.

Silva stated on Twitter Monday that he has been asked – and agreed – to replace Alexander Gustafsson this Saturday and take on Mousasi in the main event.

“The Dream Catcher” took to his own social media site and accepted the fight – though nothing has been confirmed by the UFC yet regarding a change.

“Hey Mr. Silva, if this is true and you are ready to fight me than I accept the fight,” Mousasi posted. “It’s an honor for me. Much respect for you. At this moment I do not have any new info about my situation.”

As of now, the main event is still expected to feature Mousasi and Gustafsson from Sweden. More updates will be coming as they are made known.
