Then, earlier today, Alexander ‘The Mauler’ Gustafsson (15-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) tweeted that he too was headed to Moscow, and more:

@AlexTheMauler: Next stop Moscow!!!!!

    gustaffson is not ready for bones yet. he aint on his level, esp wrestling-wise. bones will dominate him in every aspect of the fight. i see bones taking gustaffson down at will and GnP’ing him either to a TKO or submission, either way it will be another finish and another successful title defense on jones’ record.i’d rather see hendo just cause he’s willing to (and can) take a few shots to get inside and land his own. i think hendo has a better chance and he needs to fight jones already.
