Armenian-Iranian mixed martial artist Gegard Mousasi (33–3–2 MMA) who is currently to debut in the UFC at UFC on Fuel TV 9 on April 6, 2013 in Stockholm, Sweden against Alexander Gustafsson (15-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) seems to not have any problems to be an underdog, in fact he says he likes it.

The former Dream champion twittered: “I see I am the underdog like always..;))) I like it”

Former StrikeForce Light-heivyweight champion Mousasi has fought in several MMA organizations around the world and has fought many well-known fighters, such as Denis Kang, Mark Hunt, Renato Sobral, Melvin Manhoef, Ronaldo Souza to name few. “The Dreamcatcher” trained with the Legendary MMA fighter and former Pride champion Fedor Emelianenko. Also most of the 27 years old Mousasi’s fights he ended in round 1, including his last fight against UFC veteran Mike Kyle by rear-naked choke on January 12, 2013 at final StrikeForce event.

While Gustafsson lost in the UFC just once against Phil Davis by anaconda choke at the end of round one at UFC 112 on April 10, 2010, the Swede has a six-fight win streak where in his last fight he beat Former UFC and Pride champion Maurício “Shogun” Rua by unanimous decision at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz on December 8, 2012 in Seattle, Washington.

I heard UFC president Dana White promised Gustafsson a shot at the title if he wins, but what about Mousasi? MMA fans, I think the winner of the fight has to be the next contender, it wouldn't be fair to give just one of them the opportunity. They both deserve it. What do you think?
