Last night in the main event of “UFC Fight Night Stockholm”, Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson TKO’d Alexander Gustafsson to earn a shot at Jon Jones light heavyweight strap (See that HERE).

Following the win, Brian Stann and Daniel Cormier broke down the win on the UFC Post-Fight show, in addition to discussing a future matchup between Rumble and Jon Jones. Brian Stann went as far as to call Jones vs. Johnson the most anticipated fight of 2015.

“Johnson is so intimidating. He strutted to the Octagon. He looked like he knew something we all didn’t know. We all thought Gustafsson had the kryptonite for him with his movement, but Johnson used the power. We said he had to cut off Gustafsson and he was able to back him up with the overhand right. This fight could have been stopped sooner. This was a huge win. Now, Jones versus Johnson is the most anticipated fight of the year.”

Daniel Cormier spoke about the fight, saying:

“This is why we flipped back and forth with our picks all week. We just didn’t know what was going to happen. Johnson successfully cut off the cage and got to Gustafsson. Johnson goes out there and delivers. Anthony Johnson is the man! What a performance. If he gets his hands on people, he puts them out.”
