Gegard Mousasi, like many others, believed that Wanderlei Silva was going to step in and face him Saturday night at UFC on FUEL TV: Gustafsson vs. Mousasi. We found out that Silva was just playing an April Fool’s Day joke on Tuesday, as did a disgruntled Mousasi.
“IDIOT OF THE YEAR 2013!! Good job JACKASS!!!” Mousasi posted on Twitter.
Mousasi mentioned on Monday that it would be an honor for Silva to step in for Alexander Gustafsson and meet him in Sweden Saturday. Now, it would appear as if Mousasi is none-too-happy with “The Axe Murderer.”
The latest updates have Gustafsson set to be examined by the Swedish MMA Federation and doctors today to determine if he will be allowed to fight this weekend.
