Video: Alexander Gustafsson 'Road to UFC on Fuel TV 2' fight against Thiago Silva in Sweden (Part 1)

This is a short video documentary that follows emerging Swedish Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) LIght Heavyweight prospect, Alexander Gustafsson, as he prepares to fight Thiago Silva in the UFC on Fuel TV 2 main event this weekend (April 14, 2012), at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

In the first of five episodes, we get to know a little bit about the background of "The Mauler," how he got into mixed martial arts (MMA) and the reason(s) for it, as well as where he trains and his thoughts on his Octagon debut against Jared Hamman back in Nov. 2009.

This five-part docu-series will be in Swedish; however, there are English subtitles if you press the "cc" button (closed caption) on the YouTube video player.

Enjoy.
