While Jon Jones is currently slated to fight Daniel Cormier in a highly anticipated rematch for the UFC light heavyweight championship at UFC 197 on April 23rd, ‘Bones’ recently stated that he actually has his eyes set on a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson.
Jones and Gustafsson fought to a decision back at UFC 165. While Jones retained the belt, many believed that Gustafsson should have left Toronto with the UFC light heavyweight championship.
Gustafsson responded to Jon Jones’ callout with a Facebook post saying:
Gustafsson also commented on the post to clear up any confusion, saying:
Just to clear things up guys, I am not calling out Jones, just responding to his challenge. And it is not about the belt. I feel just I have some unfinished business with him, the same that he feels about me.
