    Sounds good, I'm still surprised that they called it off because Akira was sick 2 months before the fight.

    That would make sense. They last visited Sweden last April.

    I have a hard time believing there's going to be an event in Switzerland any time soon. The countries population is 8 million, is there even a poster here on Sherdog from Switzerland?

    If anywhere, Sweden....but unless they're planning on once again, lying, and having Gustafsson headline....I don't see how a Sweden card in April works. Not enough local guys to put on that card, and no headliner (unless Gus fights someone, which would again prove that any time White says a fight is a 'title eliminator' - it isn't. It translates to "this fight is on FOX so I'm trying to make it sound REALLY important").

    UFC are probably coming back to Sweden in 2013 so that makes sense.

    I don't think you'll ever see a fighter from Switzerland, they have a history of being neutral when it comes to fighting.

    He turned down the fight as late replacement 1 month before the fight. He said he had a really bad fever but we would like to fight him later.

    Still dont think this fight makes sense for Robbie, huge step down for him. He should be fighting a top 15 FW at least. Akira barely beat Ogle & most people dont even think he won that fight.

    They've got one or two (Yasubey Enomoto? maybe) but MMA will never be huge there, Swiss are too nice in general!

    Think it was more he couldn't afford to take time off training so close to a fight. Not to mention it would affect his peaking phase. Need to remember this is these guys careers/livelihood.
