“I thought [Gustfasson] won. Whenever they announced that Jones won, I was shocked. I actually thought Alexander won. But you can’t win them all. When you’re fighting the champion, you definitely have to put him away. And it was a really close fight but I still think that he did enough…. but that’s just how the dice rolled.”
“I want Daniel Cormier to win just to shake up the division a little bit, but he is fighting Jones so that’s going to be tough to do. I’m picking Daniel to win just because I want him to shake up the division – give people something different to talk about. [Jones is] a beast. He’s the best in the world; he’s the best ever at 205. He definitely has my respect. Everybody at 205 has my respect. It would be nice for a change to hear another name.”
During a recent sit down with the Swedish media, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson discussed Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson and the upcoming Jones vs. Cormier bout.
