Mousasi angered by “Jackass” Wanderlei’s April Fools Prank

If you were on your favorite social network yesterday, you likely heard all kinds of absurd match-ups in lieu of April Fools. Of those attempts to ‘fool’ was “The Axe Murderer” Wanderlei Silva. The Pride FC legend had most of the media scratching their head as he tweeted that he would in fact be stepping in for an injured Alexander Gustafsson at this weekends UFC on Fuel TV 9.  Come this morning, Wandy admits with the hilarious picture above (and below) that he was joking.

For Mousasi, it was likely a stressful April 1st as he heard of the factual info on his opponent suffering a severe cut that may keep him out of their bout. With Silva mentioning his acceptance of the match after talking to the UFC, Mousasi took to twitter to say he would be prepared to fight Silva.

As Dana White had verified yesterday, it was just an April Fools joke. As of now, the UFC is still hoping to get Gustafsson approved for this weekends action.
