LOL. Per Dana's twitter:


"Mousasi will face Iliir Latifa this Saturday live on @FUELTV Latifa is from Sweden and training partner of Gustafsson."

There ya go Swedes, you get to cheer on another Swede! Screw asking for refunds now!

Best part about that Dana tweet is that he didn't even spell the dude's name correctly.

At least it's only three rounds.

It's on at 10am pacific anyway, so probably "one for the DVR" for most fans. I'll be out of town this weekend so this will be the first event I won't be watching live in a long time and now I really don't care lol.

Thats a pretty frustrating picture. I know it was probably the right thing to do, but it's too bad he disclosed that to the commission, no one would have probably even noticed by the couple of days leading up to the fight.

A no brainer to match the two of them up.

Gustafsson has asked the UFC for a fight against Machida or to fill in as in injury replacement should that situation arise. I bet Machida/Gus will become the main, or co-main, for that FOX card in Seattle.

The more I think about the Rory/Jake fight, the closer I think it is. Though I still think Rory will win, I don't think it'll be a walk in the park for him.

I am too. Should be the elusive fight where Rory doesn't have a distinct strength advantage.

Hes the more diverse fighter but hes playing with fire if he tries to get cute with Jake. He'll find his head in Vancouver. This isn't the bloated shadow of B.J. Penn in there with him.

Pretty much exactly what I'm thinking here.

Bunch of fights added to the next FOX card in Seattle. The no-brainer headliner is Mighty Mouse's next title defense against John Moraga. Also added Tate/Carmouche, Mitrione/Schaub(that "suspension" lasted a long time ), Chiesa/Madadi and Yves Edwards/Spencer Fisher.

At the post-fight presser Dana said Roy could get Cormier or Hunt if he beats JDS, and Cormier tweeted saying he's down to fight Roy, so that could be next for them.

Dana also said Anderson called tonight and asked for either Jones or GSP. My guess is GSP.

If any UFC fight ends in simultaneous double KO, I hope its this one.

If it's GSP, would that be news worthy and something Dana needs to announce? Haven't Anderson and Soares been asking for the GSP fight for the last year (or maybe longer)? We also know GSP isn't going to take that fight. Recently he was asked about fighting Anderson and he responded by saying moving to LW is probably easier and more likely.

I really hope he's asking for the Jones fight.

Sonnen did a bit of work in the clinch vs Jones and I wonder if Silva took notice of that as a potential strategy.

But based on how close Machida is to another shot, I would be very surprised if Silva fights Jones anytime soon. If Jones beats Machida again, then maybe.

Can't they put Machida and Gus against one another and have the winner fight Jones? Jones wants Gus.

Depending on how long Jones will be sidelined, that's likely what will happen. I bet Machida/Gus will be on the Fox Sports card in August.
