Dana White: ‘Jon Jones Sounds Worried About Gustafsson Rematch’

By Evan Stoumbelis

Dana White responded to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ comments about the UFC giving Alexander Gustafsson an easy fight to protect the rematch between Gustafsson and Jones by saying:

“Jon, I love you, but you’re not a matchmaker. Fight your fight, he’ll fight his fight, and don’t worry about it.”

“It makes you sound like you’re worried about it. When you talk like that, it sounds like you’re worried about it.”

Gustafsson gave Jones his toughest test yet in September when the two fought to a close controversial decision that saw Jones retain the title.

After the fight the UFC announced if Gustafsson won his next fight with Antonio Nogueira he would get a rematch with Jones. However Nogueira pulled out of the fight with a back injury. Jones still sounded off however saying he felt Gustafsson should have to face a tougher opponent and offered his advice saying that Gustafsson should fight Daniel Cormier for the number one contender spot.

This past weekend it was announced Gustafsson would be facing Jimi Manuwa in March.

What do you think PENNATION? is the UFC padding Gustafsson’s road back to a rematch?

    Jones has fear in his heart definitely. He’s been fighting guys at 205 half his size for a while. Glad to see him fight someone his size and get a taste of his own medacine. And now he’s ducking Gus knowing that he got robbed, chicken shit

  2. KIDD433 says:

    JDOG will be here in about 2 sec to choke on Jones’ Johnson

  3. UFC 84 Forever says:

    Jones might be a little fearful of Gus but with Jackson in his corner in the rematch that point is moot. Jacksons’ tutelage and ability to change plans during fights with Jones’ talent makes it neigh impossible to beat him outside of the first round.

    yaaaa i see how hes a little worried, i really see texieria clipping jones and ending the whole damn thing but thats just me. If not DC will be a good contender to beat him. Gusta gave that fight away by getting hit time after time with that spinning shit that i feel like you can see from a mile away but whatever. I like watching Jones fight but seeing Jones in HW would be very interesting.
