Alexander Gustafsson vows to finish 'dangerous' Gegard Mousasi at UFC on FUEL TV 9 on April 6 in Sweden

Top UFC 205-pound contender Alexander Gustafsson has had enough of the judges' opinions and vows to take matters into his own hands by finishing Gegard Mousasi in their UFC on FUEL TV 9 fight booked for April 6, 2013 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson has gone to consecutive decisions in fights against Thiago Silva at UFC on FUEL TV 2 and Mauricio Rua at UFC on FOX 5.

Could that be the reason why he's not next in line for a 205-pound title shot?

Whether it is or it isn't is of no concern to the towering Swede, who tells MMA Viking he's going for the finish in his next fight, an intriguing battle of styles against Gegard Mousasi at the UFC on FUEL TV 9 event on April 6, 2013 in Stockholm, Sweden, because two is just too much.

"Gegard is by far the most dangerous opponent so far. He's young, he's hungry and has a lot of fight experience. It's gonna be interesting. I'll win the fight, no doubt. It's not going to be a decision that's for sure because two decisions in a row now, it's too much. I'm going to go for the finish, I want the finish. But Mousasi is the toughest opponent so far. It's going to be a great fight."

"The Mauler" is riding a six-fight win streak inside the Octagon after dropping his sophomore effort to Phil Davis at UFC 112 way back in 2010.

Following his unanimous decision win over "Shogun" at UFC on FOX 5 last month (Dec. 2012) in Seattle, Gustafsson was asked to make room for Chael Sonnen, who basically cut the 205-pound line and assigned himself a shot at the title, currently held by division deity Jon Jones.

And let's not forget about the winner of Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida at UFC 157, who may also expect to have first dibs after "The American Gangster."

Alright fight fans, you've heard from Gustafsson. Does a finish over "The Dreamcatcher" qualify him for a crack at the crown? Or will the Strikeforce import spoil those plans and build his own argument for the next shot at the winner of Jones vs. Sonnen "Bones?"
