Looks like Gustaffson could be pulled from his headlining fight next Saturday against Gegard Mousasi in Sweden. If Gus can't go, I don't know what the UFC will do with that fight, let alone card. The card was pretty weak to begin with and I can't imagine they'll find a suitable replacement to fight Mousasi on less than a week's notice. Only option I can see is to pull Phil Davis from his fight at the end of the month, he might be ready to go, but that's a lot to ask from him. Tom Lawlor, who's also fighting on the card said he'd take the fight lol. Ideally Glover or Machida would take the fight, but less than a week out, I can't imagine either would be in fighting shape. Watch Chael take this fight, then fight Jones at the end of the month.

It begs the question, why is Gustafsson participating in intense sparring one week out from a big fight? Do they not wear head gear?
