05:43 PM ET 04.02 | There had been some questions and concerns surrounding the availability of UFC light-heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson who was set to headline this weekend's UFC on FUEL TV 9 card in his home country of Sweden against Gegard Mousasi. Now we have answers and they aren't what the fans and the UFC was hoping for. Gustafsson will not be cleared by the Swedish MMA Federation and will not be able to participate in the main event this weekend. Gustafsson suffered a cut during training last week and was originally examined on Saturday when the concerns began to surface. He had a follow-up today and the cut had not healed enough to satisfy Sweden's regulatory body. As a result, he was not cleared for the event.
