Apparently, according to the UFC light-heavyweight himself, Alexander Gustafsson really didn’t expect to get a title shot for the same reason a lot of fans are pointing out.

But, he got it and now it’s time to prepare. The challenger says he’s already seen a lot of holes in Daniel Cormier’s game that he can exploit.

“Tons of them. It was so frustrating to watch that fight, but it is what it is. Anthony did a great job winning over me. All credit to him. DC did a great job against Anthony. That’s MMA.”

“I haven’t actually even been thinking that much about the belt. I haven’t seen myself in that position, really, because of my loss. But here I am now and I’m very thankful. I’m so happy and very excited. I can’t wish for more.

“I believe that the UFC wants to see me against DC. That’s so simple. They really want to see us fight. Also, a good job from my managers, too. They’ve been working hard for this opportunity and I’m very thankful for this so I can’t wait.”

“The opponent is set and also, the belt. I’m just happy for that.”
