Wanderlei Silva: Replacing Alexander Gustafsson Just A Joke

Well, those that didn’t believe Wanderlei Silva were right, as “The Axe Murderer” confirmed he was just pulling an April Fool’s Day joke Monday in regards to replacing Alexander Gustafsson.

Many fighters stated the same on Twitter, but Silva actually responded to several media outlets and confirmed that he was flying to Sweden to replace “The Mauler” in a bout with Gegard Mousasi.

“I catch you wand the best April first ever!!” Silva wrote on Twitter. “But I would like this to be true!”

So, I guess Silva pulled the wool over my face, but his decision to go as far as he did with his comments could come back to haunt him a bit down the road.
