Alexander Gustafsson wins PNG

Former UFC light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson may be sidelined after undergoing a minor surgery, but that hasn’t stopped him from wanting his rematch with Jon Jones. Gustafsson is confident that when Jones meets Cormier at UFC 178 in an actual bout (not another press conference) Jones will emerge victorious.

His words via The MMA Hour:

“No disrespect to DC, I think he’s a very great opponent and a great athlete. I think he’s a very tough fighter and a hard-working guy, but I believe Jones will win the fight. I see myself fighting Jones. That’s what I want. Nothing else. That’s what I want. I’m not saying anything else, and I’m really, really hoping that I get my chance. I will do my operation, and I’ll have my few weeks of rehab, and I’m going to come back stronger than ever. When my knee is healed, I’m going to be 100 percent. I’m going to be better than ever. I’m really hoping that I get my title. I want my title.”
