It appears that the hometown fighter will be the betting favorite going into the main event of UFC on Fuel 9 on April 6th in Stockholm. Alexander Gustafsson, who is in line for a UFC light heavyweight title with a victory here, will take on ex-Strikeforce and Dream champion Gegard Mousasi in the headliner, and the line for the fight dropped a few days ago. Here's what it looks like right now:
I'm not really surprised at that. Gustafsson probably has more ways to win and he's much bigger than Mousasi. But if the line moved any more, I might actually consider a bet on Mousasi. He's a very talented fighter that could present a lot of danger for Gustafsson on the feet or on the ground, and this fight certainly isn't a blowout. Only three sites have dropped a line on the fight so far though, so there might be a better one coming out soon.
