“BEAST”

 

Alexander Gustafsson

“Of course, he’s (Gustafsson) definitely my toughest opponent. Have you seen that guy fight? He moves well, he punches well and he doesn’t really get hit. I think the only person that really hit him was Jon Jones a couple of times. You see the difference between Jon Jones and Alexander after that fight. Jones is a beast, don’t get me wrong, he’s the greatest of all time at 205 and he’s proven that over and over again. But, Alexander is a beast too. I’m honored to be in the same weight class as those two guys. So, to me that’s exciting. Hopefully I get old and grey and I can sit down and sit by the campfire and talk to the younger generation and tell them, ‘hey, this is what I did when I was in my prime.’ Hopefully I can tell some good stories when I’m old.”

During a recent chat with the press in Sweden, top UFC light-heavyweight Anthony Johnson discussed his upcoming opponent in Alexander Gustafsson.
