Alexander Gustafsson Prefers Jon Jones Match But Will Take Fight Against Machida

“I want to fight Jones. I want to fight for the title, that’s what I want to do. But, I am not going to wait for a long time because I fought in December. I fought ‘Shogun’ in December and I want to fight soon, so. I want to fight in a couple of months, at least. I want to fight soon. If Jones can’t fight, which I would understand because (his injury) looked very nasty and could be out awhile, then I will fight Machida, too. But, if Jones can fight in a few months, I would love to fight him.”

In an interview today with MMAFighting.com’s, The MMA Hour, top UFC light-heavyweight fighter, Alexander Gustafsson tells host, Ariel Helwani, that he indeed prefers a shot at the UFC’s 205 pound strap but in the absence of the champion, will accept the challenge thrown out earlier by Lyoto Machida.

  1. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    He’s not ready at all for Jones. And he still has one more contender fight to do since he had to back out of the mousasi fight.
