Top 205-pound prospect Alexander Gustafsson will battle Strikeforce import Gegard Mousasi at the UFC on FUEL TV 9 event, which is slated for the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, on April 6, 2013.
That's less than two weeks away, y'all.
"The Mauler" (15-1) is inching closer and closer to a light heavyweight title shot, thanks to a six-fight winning streak that dates back to 2010. The towering Swede holds wins over Mauricio Rua and Thiago Silva, among others, and his lone defeat came against fellow rising star Phil Davis nearly three years ago.
A lot has changed since then.
One thing that's stayed the same is the badass country crib where he trains at, a place with "no traffic and no distractions." True, mom and grandmom are tooling around in the kitchen, but a man's gotta eat, no? And there looks to be plenty of room at the table for his teammates.
Let's see if this country boy can be a nightmare for "The Dreamcatcher" a week from Saturday night. For more news and notes on UFC on FUEL TV 9 click here.
