Video: Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan preview ‘Gustafsson vs. Mousasi' at UFC on FUEL TV 9

UFC on FUEL TV 9: "Gustafsson vs. Mousasi" goes down April 6, 2013 from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. UFC commentators Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg recently broke down the night's main event between veteran light heavyweights Alexander Gustafsson and Gegard Mousasi, who clash in a contest scheduled for five rounds

The Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) ninth offering on FUEL TV, UFC on FUEL TV 9: "Gustafsson vs. Mousasi" airs live and free April 6, 2013, on FUEL TV in the United States and Rogers Sportsnet in Canada.

The event is headlined by a light heavyweight contest between hometown hero Alexander Gustafsson and former Strikeforce 205-pound champion Gegard Mousasi, who is making his promotional debut at the event.

Gustafsson (15-1) headlines a UFC event in his home country of Sweden for the second year in a row. He was victorious last time he fought in his homeland against Thiago Silva, which was one of the victories in his current six-fight win-streak.

"The Mauler" was most recently seen inside the Octagon at UFC on FOX 5 last December when he outpointed former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua to a decision victory for by far the biggest victory of his career. Gustafsson's win-streak is one of the most impressive in the UFC, and he will be trying to earn a title shot with a win in Sweden.

Mousasi (33-3-2) is a name UFC fans have been clamoring to step foot inside the Octagon for years now, and after fighting in Pride, Dream, K-1 and Strikeforce, "The Dreamcatcher" is finally ready to test himself against the very best competition the sport has to offer.

At just 27 years of age, Mousasi already has a wealth of experience under his belt and fans of the Dutchman are expecting him to make noise in a big way when he official joins the UFC ranks at UFC on FUEL TV 9.

Also scheduled for the card is a lightweight bout of Ross Pearson vs. Ryan Couture, a bantamweight clash of Brad Pickett vs. Mike Easton and a heavyweight affair of Matt Mitrione vs. Phil De Fries.

After the recent UFC 158 event last night (March 16, 2013) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada,, UFC play-by-play man Joe Rogan and color commentator Mike Goldberg broke down the light heavyweight contest that is set to serve as the main event from Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on April 6, 2013.
