Video: Watch Gegard Mousasi's UFC debut prior to his return at UFC Fight Night 36
Ahead of his main-event bout at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 36 event, watch Gegard Mousasi‘s UFC debut from this past year.
The former Strikeforce and DREAM champion initially was slated to fight light heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson at UFC on FUEL TV 9 in April 2013, but when the Swede was pulled from the card due to a facial cut on the week of the event, his training partner, Ilir Latifi, stepped in.
Check out their fight above.
And catch Mousasi (34-3-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in action on Saturday, when he returns to the middleweight division to fight ex-champ Lyoto Machida (20-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) in the FOX Sports 1-televised headliner at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil.
