“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’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.
