Mousasi: Bout with Latifi 'high risk'


Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans were frustrated when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) officials kept them in the dark over the fate of the UFC on Fuel TV 9 main event, scheduled for this Saturday (April 6, 2013) at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

Imagine how Gegard Mousasi must have felt.

"People don't tell me anything so a lot of stuff I find out on the Internet like normal people. I'm just glad Latifi took the fight and at least I have a fight. He's more of a wrestler, Gustafsson is more of a striker. I'm just gonna fight the same but with different tactics. I'm gonna try to finish the fight any way I can, that's what I'm gonna do from the start. It's a high-risk fight. I don't have a lot to gain. Against Gustafsson, I had number one spot maybe, a little closer to a title shot. This is a fight that I have a lot to lose."

Jones tucked. He should have fought. If youre a fighter chances are you have the mindset you can beat anyone any day. Especially a 185lber with 0 training camp.

Yes. Also Manny ate Gustafsson...that is why he cannot fight.

Fortunately that high risk was completely nullified after CRE's thread choosing Latifi.

He's right, unfortunately. He has to absolutely destroy Latifi to gain any positive momentum out of this fight. Latifi has nothing to lose but it's commendable he would step in at the last minute. I hope for Mousasi's sake that he makes this as impressive as possible.
