Alexander Gustafsson was disheartened when he was forced out of a recent bout with Gegard Mousasi due to a cut. Now, “The Mauler” is hoping for a quick replacement fight.
According to Gustafsson’s manager, Manos Terzitane, his fighter is a week or two away from getting cleared. A report on UFC Tonight added that he would like to be used as a replacement if an injury happens, or face Lyoto Machida.
Gustafsson suffered a cut in training prior to the scheduled bout in Sweden, and the commission failed to clear him to compete.
