Video: Wanderlei Silva’s Apology For April Fool’s Day Joke

Wanderlei Silva didn’t do himself any favors to members of the media or Gegard Mousasi by claiming to be the replacement for Alexander Gustafsson this weekend.

Silva, who posted on Twitter that he had signed a contract to step in for Gustafsson in Sweden, pushed the joke as far as possible by confirming it with several media outlets.
