Gustaffson's letter to his fans

To all of you who are wondering, I will tell you what the situation looks like, and what happened:

During Thursday's (March 28) class as we did some wrestling exercises, I lost my balance and fell in a very unfortunate way, and I hit my head on a cage post, cutting my eyebrow. Immediately after it happened, I went to the hospital and got three stitches. I was quite prepared to compete until the doctors called and told me that the cut was too severe and would not have time to heal in time.

It is of course extremely sad when the training camp has gone very well, except for this accident with the eyebrow. I am in my best form and completely ready for the match. It is also sad for my opponent, Gegard Mousasi, who has also been training long and hard for this match.

I and my team have done everything we can to get set up and compete despite the cut, unfortunately it is not in our hands anymore.

I am extremely sorry for this and I feel for Gegard Mousasi. The next step now is that I sit down with the team and plan for the future.

Thanks again for all your support!
