Sad face indeed.... at least it's just a cut. Hopefully Gus recovers soon and gets a solid opponent; maybe they try to make this match again

So long as they are ready there should be some HWs who could step in: GG vs Browne, they don't have to cut wt. Even better would be Cormier vs Mir as we all know how it would go anyways.

Why can't this be the april fools joke? This is shitty, both in that gegard is a high level fighter, making a replacement of equal caliber on short notice less likely, and finding someone at that weight with 1 week to fill in is also unlikely.

This really blows Injuries were going so well this year and now this! Mousasi probably won't get a replacement unfortunately and since this is just a cut and it doesn't seem like he'll have a lengthy layoff, they'll probably reschedule this fight to a future event.

April's cards are all pretty full and so are Mays :/
I wouldn't mind seeing this put on UFC 159 or 160 to make either super stacked!
Either way I still hope this fight happens sometime this year as it was promising to be a good one!
