UFC On FUEL TV 2 Pre-Fight Press Conference Notes

Finally, the UFC is set to return to hosting an event, as UFC on FUEL TV 2: Gustafsson vs. Silva takes place Saturday afternoon (U.S. time) from Sweden.

On Thursday, the pre-fight press conference was held, with main card fighters Alexander Gustafsson, Thiago Silva, Brian Stann and Alessio Sakara among those in attendance.

Gustafsson, who is from Sweden, will face Silva in the main event, while Stann and Sakara collide in the co-main event.

Sakara was the star of the presser, dropping one-liners throughout. When asked about Stann, Sakara replied, “He loves to fight whne a fighter is a striker, be bo bum.”

Gustafsson gave a very vanilla response when asked about possibly facing UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, claiming he is only focusing on Silva. That’s a good start for the rising prospect, as Silva is returning from a year-long suspension and will be looking to make an immediate impact.

“The Pitbull,” meanwhile, wore his usual sunglasses and responded to a question about his weight by insisting he is only three pounds over right now.
