UFC Gegard Mousasi Strikeforce

Despite his 14-to-1 odds-on favorite status, Gegard Mousasi (pictured) wasn’t able to finish off Ilir Latifi at UFC on FUEL TV 9. And now we know why.

Although he entered Saturday’s scrap with an injured knee, one that will require surgery in the coming days, Mousasi managed to post a unanimous decision victory against the last-second replacement.

Mousasi was supposed to headline the event against Alexander Gustafsson, but “The Mauler” was forced to withdraw earlier this week with a gash below his left eyebrow.

UFC on FUEL TV 9 took place inside Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
