Mousasi taking a heap of risk for not much reward with this one.

No matter how impressively he wins he'll get no real credit as Latifa is unknown but if he gets clipped and loses where does that leave him?

Not the UFC debut I was hoping for, seems dangerous and pointless when all it takes is a single punch to derail your career.

Mousasi has balls going from a title contender fight to a completely unknown opponent half a week out from the fight. Phone Post

Maybe this is karma for the UFC pulling Tate-Zingano from the card. That would've been a worthy main event in my opinion.

kickasspoolparty -  I'm kinda confused here. Why is everyone pissed at dfw and the ufc? It's not like Dana went in to Gus's training and socked him in the eye and opened up the cut, is it? They did the best they could with 6 days notice. It's not like they can get some big name in that short of a period of time. It is what it is and the show must go on. It's a let down but to place all the blame on the ufc is uncalled for in my opinion. Phone Post

They should have put out a better card, that's why. They learned nothing from UFC 151 that's why people are pissed, still the same bullshit

tonytr - Another thing. Why do people shit on Dana and the UFC when the replacements suck? If the replacement sucks, it's because that's the best they could do on short notice.
It is their fault that they couldn't just scrap that fight, because they put together pretty much no card around it. Phone Post

I sort of agree with you there. They should've had Tate-Zingano on the card.

I've seen Ilir fight live here in Sweden.

He's a great wrestler and VERY strong.

No doubt this is a step up for him but I wouldn't count him out just yet.

Whatever happens in this fight I think he could do some good stuff in the UFC.

However, it IS a Fuel card. Pearson-Couture, Pickett-Easton, and Mitrione-De Fries isn't a bad main card for Fuel.

Sort of, the Fuel and FX cards are just kind of extra stuff imo. It's the Fox and ppv that really "matter." The ppv since then have all been pretty good and they've started stacking the Fox prelims, probably to have replacements in case fights fall apart Phone Post

For those who know Football(Soccer) Ilir is from the same area in the south of Sweden as Zlatan Ibrahimovic called Rosengård.

When it comes to Sweden it's kind of ghetto.

The cards not that bad for being free on Fuel. If you had to shell out $55 for, yeah, complain.. It's one of those cards that usually has sleeper match ups on it. Not one person on this forum can say it sucked until after the nights over. If you do, to me, that's pretty lame. I'm a fight fan and I get to watch these fights for free, I'm okay with that. So I'm of the opinion you guys are being pretty childish about the whole thing. If anything be pissed at Gus for getting cut the week of. Phone Post

Yeah for FX/Fuel cards if shit happens and you get a card like this I'm fine with it, its the Fox and PPV cards they need to stack and they are.

Still why wasnt a solid co main event put on this card? Why couldnt Tarec/Kampmann been put on this card.

It also sucks it was less than a week away, if they had two weeks they probably could have gotten a legit replacement.

The cards have been getting way better than what they were 2012-2011 (on average).



I think what irks the average MMA fan about this replacement is that a non UFC fighter with no name to the rest of the world is getting a main event slot on free TV. AND its throwing a bone at the gym/training camp that caused this fuck up to begin with.

I would have thrown Tom Lawlor a bone before this guy. However, to save face in Sweden and avoid a possible exodus of refund demands at the gate, the UFC needed to make a business decision, not an MMA decision (in the best interest of the company, not the sport).

They know we will still all be watching a free card on TV.
