UFC light heavyweight Alexander ‘The Mauler’ Gustafsson (14-1) will not be available to return to the Octagon until this October due to a broken hand, this according to former UFC champ Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua who posted the news on Facebook recently.

Rua was discussing available possible opponents for his upcoming UFC 149 appearance in Calgary, Alberta after his original opponent, Thiago Silva, was forced to withdraw due to injury.

The original message was posted by ‘Shogun’ on his Facebook.com/MauricioRua.Shogun in Portuguese, and was re-posted by BloodyElbow.com with an English translation Monday night.

Not like he had an opponent set and had to pull out, like we've had too much lately.

This rumor has just been quashed by Gusto himself. No broken hand , nothing wrong.

in an unrelated article by MMAjunkie...


Gustafsson, who today shot down unsubstantiated reports of a broken hand, recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) he's targeting a summer return to the cage.

If that's the case, Book Shogun vs Gustafsson

I hope this does not affect his momentum. He is one of the few who is a solid pick. I don't believe I have ever picked against him.

Evans vs shogun.


imo there is no need to have 2 of the top 5 LHWs on a 2 fight losing streak
