Jones: Gustafsson Not My Toughest Fight

“Ultimately, it was Dana’s decision to match me up with Gustafsson and not Machida, but I did mention to Dana that I had already defeated Lyoto, and the UFC 140 pay-per-view numbers were pretty terrible. If you have a perfectly healthy, young contender who is on a rampage, why not keep new opponents, new excitement for the fans?

I don’t think he will be my toughest fight, but I need to have that psychology. I realize that he is a young man who is close to realizing a dream. You know, a lot of the guys I have fought have already had title shots before, but this is his very first title shot. I’m sure he’s going to be extremely motivated.”

  1. JON "BONED" JONES says:

    i hope he rips ur limbs out of your skinny legs

  2. real homies says:

    I hope Jon Jones get’s mauled by the mauler but i doubt it. He lost to Phil Davis by choke so I see a submission by bones maybe in 3rd or 4th.

    • Scotty says:

      That was 3 years ago! And if u watched the fight, reason he got tapped out was because he went for a takedown when he shouldn’t have and got caught in a submission.. But again that was 3 years ago, long time ago and hasnt lost since.. His fight against shogun wasnt that impressive but we’ll now see how good he really is against the best LHW..

  3. squid says:

    what jones said is true… i want gustaffson, but i think bones will handle him

  4. DEE says:

    Jone Jones is the biggest lying sack of sh%% I have ever seen. He clearly asked for this fight and did everything possible to ignore Lyoto. Does anyone remember him saying that Lyoto was “a high risk low reward fight.”
    I can’t even be a Jones fan because he’s so full of sh#$. I respect his talent, but as a man and an individual he has character flaws.

  5. 757 says:

    Not much to say other than I really hope JBJ looses

  6. KIDD433 says:

    everytime Jones opens his mouth he shows how much douche he is.
