QUICK TWITT: Mousasi Not Impressed With Silva’s April Fools Joke – Calls Him Jacka** & Idiot of the Year


After it was announced that Alexander Gustafsson would be out of his scheduled main event, against Gegard Mousasi this weekend, the internet exploded with rumors.

One of which was started by the man pictured above, Wanderlei Silva, who stated he was contacted by the UFC to fill the UFC on FUEL TV 9’s void.

But yesterday was April Fool’s day and as such, Wand admitted to playing this devilish prank on everyone in the MMA scene.

Mousasi didn’t find it funny.

    mousasi got punk’d!

  2. UFC 84 Forever says:

    Mousasi’s getting saucey…

    Musta been shitting his pants, why would he be pissed at this? It’d be awesome fighting a legend like Wand…

    And if you’re really confident in your striking, KOing him should be easy, and it’d be a total fight of the night…

    What’s your problem Mousasi?

    • Thom says:

      His problem is that Wanderlei claimed he was willing to fight Mousasi to basically save the card, but then came out and called it a april fools ”joke”. Yeah hilarious stuff. Mousasi is right, now he’s facing a nobody which is a complete lose-lose sitation, especially considering almost no one cares about the card anymore now.

      • UFC 84 Forever says:

        Fair game, but it wouldn’t seem the UFC brass even approached him with it; I don’t remember the last time Wanderlei actually turned down a fight (though it happens, and he might not be cleared to fight, which would make the joke quite foolish).

        But now that you mention it, perhaps you have a good point.

        I’ll admit the joke wasn’t funny, just seemed weird that Mousasi was so worked up about it, but when you put it that way, I’d be a bit grumpy too, though I doubt I’d resort to the same tactics Mousasi did.

      • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

        Yeah agreed. For Mousasi it’s a very important day and first UFC fight. It’s not a joke to Mousasi it’s his life. He probably got excited to fight a legend and now it turns out that legend thinks his UFC debut is a joke….

    • mma critic says:

      why wouldnt he be pissed his team probably started watching wands fight tapes and preparing, ild be pissed too

      • UFC 84 Forever says:

        One day of watching tapes won’t kill you, and there isn’t a single tape of a high level guy you could watch that would hurt you.

        Also he shouldn’t have been so gullible especially if he wasn’t given the heads up from UFC brass.

  3. Jose Martinez says:

    Man, f#ck Mousasi

  4. YoMama says:

    It was a good joke. But I totally understand Mousasi’s reaction. This is a business. People are underestimating Mousasi’s talent. he will make a big splash in the UFC, then the bandwagon riders will appear.

  5. Rufus says:

    Very descriptive blog, I loved that a lot. Will there be a part 2?
