UFC on Fuel 9: Who's on the Hot Seat on Gegard Mousasi vs. Ilir Latifi Card
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

UFC on Fuel 9 will go down on Saturday from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. In a very unfortunate change of plans, the original main event between Alexander Gustafsson and Gegard Mousasi has given way to Mousasi versus injury replacement Ilir Latifi.  That change was necessitated when Gustafsson was cut in training and removed from the fight.

The late change shines a spotlight on Mousasi, putting him in the position of being the guy that's supposed to walk right over the unheard-of opponent.  You know, no pressure or anything. 

Mousasi is not the only fighter on the card that will be facing scrutiny. Some will be in a must-win situation because of their record, while others will be in that spot because of the hype that will accompany them to the Octagon.

What follows are the fighters on the proverbial hot seat heading into Saturday's fight card.
