Jon Jones joined Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour tonight to talk about his upcoming fight with Alexander Gustafsson, and why he is refusing to fight in Gustafsson’s native country of Sweden.
“It won’t be Sweden. No chance,” Jones said. “I have no reason to. I’m the champ and he’s the challenger, I don’t find it appropriate for me to go to his back yard.”
UFC President Dana White said the UFC is targeting Sweden, Toronto, and Las Vegas as potential places to hold the massive event. However with Jones refusing Sweden, it looks like it’s down to just Toronto and the UFC’s home in Las Vegas.
