Gustaffson earns title shot with win over Mousasi


Alexander Gustafsson's path to a shot at the UFC light-heavyweight title apparently has just one more step.

If victorious against Gegard Mousasi in the headliner of April's UFC on Fuel TV 9 event, the Swedish fighter will got a long-coveted title fight, UFC President Dana White said today while in London.

"If Mousasi beats Gustafsson, he skyrockets right to the top of that division," White said. "And as far as Gustafsson goes, if he beats Mousasi in that fight, he's in line for a title shot.

"This is a big fight for both of those guys."

Mousasi should get title shot after this fight if he wins and the Hendo/Machida fight is crap.

What happened to the "most impressive winner" out of Shogun Vs Vera and Machita Vs Bader getting the next title shot? Then Dana said it was Machita after he KOd Bader

I'd rather be the guy that goes 50/50 then goes 0/2.

Already have two SN bets set ups within that time frame, fren. You're right, Machida will beat Hendo.

He ain't beating my boy Mousasi and we can do a SN bet on that. And Machida will beat Hendo.
