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.”
