While he admits he'd like the opportunity, Wanderlei Silva today admitted he was simply pulling an April Fools' Day prank when he said he had replaced Alexander Gustafsson at Saturday's UFC on FUEL TV 9 event.

With Gustafsson's status questionable due to a recent facial cut, Silva tweeted on Monday that the UFC had contacted him about filling in and fighting light heavyweight Gegard Mousasi.

Like any good April Fools' Day joke, Silva's claim was believable enough to seem possible, despite the April 1 date. Mousasi even tweeted that he'd take the fight. Silva, though, admitted it was all a rouse...

Vandelay actually thinking he could beat Gegard is a joke.

No. The joke is Fhael thinking he can beat Bones. Even if Fhael went back to his steroid taking days, Jon would crush him!!!

Uhhhhh, Chael is still juicing legally (TRT) and if he really never had a chance at beating Jones it seems bizarre that Jones would turn down the fight and the money.
