Looks like I have to find something else to do Saturday night. Sucks for people who bought a ticket. I can't believe guys are still training this hard a week before a fight. Did we not learn anything from 2012?

Statement from the Swedish MMA Federation (SMMAF) Medical Committee.

According to SMMAF regulations the competitors in a match shall be examined by the certified appointed match doctor prior to the match. The examination is always carried out the day before the match, this is to safeguard that a competitor shall never be cleared for a match earlier than the day before the match.

In the case of Alexander Gustafsson there was a request for an early indicative medical examination which was immediately performed on March 30th (Easter Eve). The federation doctors that performed the examination informed Gustafsson that his injury was of such a nature that it was very unlikely that he would be medically cleared for a match in the near future. These doctors did not have a mandate to stop the match at the time of that examination.

The SMMAF Medical Committee has today reviewed the circumstances regarding Gustafsson and his injury. The SMMAF Medical Committee recognizes that a competitor cannot be medically cleared earlier than the day before the match. However, bearing in mind that a correct medical examination that met the regulatory demands has been performed, nothing in the SMMAF regulations hinders the SMMAF Medical Committee from making a decision to stop Gustafsson from competing. As it is clear that Alexander Gustafsson will not be fit to compete as planned and cannot be medically cleared on Friday the 5th of April, the SMMAF Medical Committee has today decided that Alexander Gustafsson will not be allowed to participate in the planned match on April 6th.

Manuwa or Sakara!

Both already in Europe area. Might have to do a Catchweight at like 215 or something. But it's still a fight. And both guys have good fan bases over there. Phone Post

This fight is in fucking Sweden. Good luck to anyone who has to travel there and fight a killer like Gegard. It's just not going to happen. They'll have to cancel this event now. Maybe they'll learn their fucking lesson this time. Unless they want to sell the entire crowd on Pearson vs Couture being worth the price of admission. Too many cards. 4 in 4 weeks. This is what happens. If you can't tell, I'm fucking pissed and disappointed beyond belief right now.

I dont think manuwa can make the weight in a week. Also he isnt a big enough name to headline. Dana needs to bust out the anderson silva money and bring out machida. He can easily make the weight, can headline and didnt take any damage last fight, and is skillful enough to give a good fight against mousasi.

That's what happens when the UFC gets fucking greedy and puts on shit cards with only one real intriguing fight.
