UFC Quick Quote: Alexander Gustafsson has 'no doubt' he will defeat Gegard Mousasi

USA TODAY Sports

Fresh off the heels of the announcement that Alexander Gustafsson vs. Gegard Mousasi would headline the UFC's second fight card in Sweden on April 6, 2013, "The Mauler" discussed his thoughts on Mousasi as an opponent as well as his eagerness to not only get a win, but a finish after going the distance in back-to-back fights.

"Gegard is by far the most dangerous opponent so far, no question he's young, he's hungry and he has a lot of fight experience, so it's going to be interesting to see. I can't wait to fight in my hometown in front of my home audience against a top guy like that, so, I'm very happy...I will win the fight, no doubt, I will win the fight. And how I will win? It's not going to be a decision, that's for sure because two decisions like in a row now is too much. I want to have a finish, I want to go for a finish, I want a finish and I'm going to win the fight no doubt. But Gegard is the toughest opponent so far, so it's going to be a great fight and a great camp."

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson pegs newly announced opponent Gegard Mousasi "by far the most dangerous opponent" he has faced thus far in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career in a recent interview with Nordic MMA. "The Mauler" takes on "The Dreamcatcher" in the main event of UFC on FUEL TV 9 at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, on April 6, 2013. Coming off a win over MMA legend and former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua at UFC on FOX 5, Gustafsson is riding high and even though he has the utmost respect for Mousasi's skills, the 26-year-old has "no doubt" that he will emerge victorious against the former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion and push his current win-streak to seven.
