With the MMA world still waiting to hear a definitive answer as to whether Alexander Gustafsson will indeed fight Gegard Mousasi Saturday, Wanderlei Silva used the opportunity perfectly to pull of an April Fools prank.

The legendary fighter tweeted earlier yesterday that the UFC had contacted him about Saturday, and that he was set to fight Mousasi at the Stockholm event.

Later, Silva revealed that it had all been a joke, by posting:

I catch you wand the best April first ever!! But I would like this to be true!!!

It was revealed this weekend that Gustafsson has suffered a cut during training and as a result, his ability to fight Mousasi Saturday is in doubt. According to the latest report from MMA Fighting, the rising light-heavyweight will be examined today by doctors, which will likely determine if he’ll be allowed to fight.
