Jones Doesn’t Want Gustafsson or Cormier – Wants Them To Fight Each Other Instead

March 10, 2014 2:15 pm by bjpenn.com staff 25 Comments

At UFC Fight Night in London this past weekend, Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson handed then, 14-0 Jimi Manuwa his first career loss via TKO. Gustafsson expressed his desire to get back in the cage with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, during the post fight interview with Dan Hardy. Following that impressive show, UFC President Dana White announced the Gustafsson would get the winner of Jones vs. Teixeira at UFC 172. Twitter was buzzing with the excitement of a seemingly fast-approaching Jones/Gustafsson rematch, and this buzz casued Jon “ Bones” Jones to give his thoughts about the match up on the social media site:

“Why not give the winner of Alexander and [Daniel Cormier] the winner of myself and Glover??” asked Jones on Twitter. “Call me what you want but I can’t be the only person who thinks that makes perfect sense. I see DC congratulating Alexander and making comments about waiting his turn now. I wonder if they’re afraid to fight each other? People who don’t like to think are quick to call me afraid. Think about it, I’m asking for the meanest of the two would you face winner of Phil vs Anthony?”
