The only thing stopping you from watching UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs. Mousasi next Saturday is your girlfriend’s constant need to interrupt your Saturday night with tales of her problematic life. Here’s a tip, as she’s yentaing it up about what happened in her office that week, just occasionally make eye contact, nod your head throughout, and add phrases like ‘Damn, that’s crazy!’ when she finishes a complete thought. She will think that you are listening, and thus you will come off as a far more compassionate person than what you truly are. With that obstacle placed behind you, you’re free to tune into Fuel TV and watch Alexander Gustafsson take on Gegard Mousasi in a fight that no one thought was possible just a year ago.
Before you watch next weekend’s surprisingly stacked Swedish card, you better take an invasive tour through Gustafsson’s pad — and have a look at what his grandmother cooked for him while you’re at it.
