I hope Gus isn't out of the fight but if they're going to have a replacement, Wandy would be unreal.

I just asked DW about Wand vs. Mousasi. His response: "Gus is still fighting! It's April fools. Stay of twitter and the net today!" :/

I'm not a big fan of Gus so this would be amazing if it was true.

Gus wins via ud against Gegard, Wandy vs Gegard produces a much different match up. Does Gegard take Wand down or stand and bang and possibly get ko'd? I'd rather see Gegard va Wandy, much more intreging IMO

I like the matchup better when considering the differences of the types of fights but still would rather see Mousasi get someone higher in the ranks.

for a last minute replacement, we can't be too picky. If this happened 3 weeks out then I agree but when the fight is coming up in a few days it's tough to get any top fighter flown overseas and try to make weight
