Gustaf Ackerman is a German mixed martial artist from Berlin, Germany. He currently competes as a middleweight in the Human Cockfighting League, and is a former two-time HCL Middleweight Champion.
Gustaf, or "The Gooz", as radio fans know him, is one half of the popular morning radio show "Winslow & The Gooz", heard on WIRM in Tucson, Arizona. He is known for his broken English as punchlines to joke. One of his more popular bits is "No Is Funny", where fans call in and tell jokes, trying to make Ackerman laugh. However, most jokes, using play on words, idioms, and other humor devices, are not understood by him, causing him to declare, "No is funny."
His entrance into mixed martial arts came after having HCL light heavyweight Ralph Marshall on as a guest, who was impressed by Gustaf's ability to take a punch, during a radio stunt where the hosts, interns, and WIRM executives, all took punches to the face by Marshall. Ackerman then was enlisted to train at Bully Factory along with Marshall. Gustaf claims that his favorite quote of Marshall's during the show was "Little league is a lot like martial arts: The losers leave with their bodies and spirits brusied, broken, and somewhat violated. Or maybe that was just my coach's philosophy when I was 8..."
