Gustafsson: ‘Cormier Might Take Me Down Once, Or Twice’

Alexander Gustafsson

UFC light heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson will once again challenge for the UFC title this Saturday at UFC 192, when he takes on champion Daniel Cormier in the night’s main event.

Gustafsson didn’t come away with the belt the first time, when he went five rounds with Jon Jones, but hopes to get the job done against Cormier, who he says won’t be able to just out wrestle him the whole fight.

Gustafsson told MMA Noise that he’s ready for what Cormier has and doesn’t see him being able to get him to the ground more than once or twice during their five round fight.

“I’ve been working with the best guys in the world and my takedown defense is better than ever. I believe I got my speed and my footwork, too. I am not afraid of “DC’s” wrestling. If it comes down to wrestling, he’ll maybe take me down once or twice, but it’s a 25-minute fight, so I’m ready.”
