Gegard Mousasi sent to Indian reservation, rips UFC for bungling 'canceled' fight announcement

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Poor guy is always the last to know...

Gegard Mousasi had no idea his fight against Ronaldo Souza was no longer taking place in Los Angeles.

That is, until he went on social media and discovered the promotion had "postponed" its UFC 176 pay-per-view (PPV) event. That means "The Dreamcatcher," by his own account, trained six weeks "for nothing," and took to his official Facebook page (via James Lynch) to put his employer on blast.

Have a look:

The good news is, Mousasi and Souza will still have their rematch, just at a later date. While UFC has yet to make an official announcement, promotion president Dana White revealed a spot on the upcoming UFC Fight Night 50 event at the Foxwoods Casino on the Mashantucket Pequot Indian Reservation in September.

Mousasi (35-4) defeated Souza (20-3) by way of up-kick knockout nearly six years ago in the finals of the DREAM middleweight grand prix. Since then, "The Dreamcatcher" has gone 11-2-1 with wins over Mark Hunt, Ovince St. Preux, and most recently, Mark Munoz.

Not to shabby.

"Jacare" has been no slouch himself, embarking on a torrid 10-1 run (1 NC) that includes wins over Tim Kennedy, Robbie Lawler, Yushin Okami, and Francis Carmont. The Brazilian -- demonstrating much-improved stand up -- has seven finishes during that span.

As far as this fight is concerned, better late than never!
