Mousasi: Bout with Latifi ‘high risk’

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

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.”
