Just watched UFC 182 with Pat, Wendi, and Marcel. *** those fights were good. I sure as *** love MMA and there is nothing better than seeing two evenly matched fighters fight for a title. I think if Daniel Cormier was the same age as Jon Jones he would never have tired. But wow what a first three rounds. Jon Jones is so good and has beaten the 6 previous champions in the UFC and now beaten an unbeatable unstoppable Daniel Cormier. Already he is the P4P king. If he wins his next fight verse the winner of Anthony Johnson and Alexander Gustafsson, He could easily be considered the greatest fighter ever.

ALEXANDER GUSTAFFSON TO FIGHT JON 'BONES' JONES AT UFC 178 Posted on June 16, 2014 by Derek Wattay Part of what has made the Ultimate Fighting Championship one of the fastest-growing sports entities in the world is that it gives its fans the fights they want to see. Even when there's resistance, UFC president Dana White and company CEO Lorenzo Fertitta often get the deal done -- and that's what they did with a rematch between Jon "Bones" Jones and Alexander Gustafsson. During the post-fight press conference of UFC 172 April 26, after his record seventh title defense against Glover Teixeira, UFC light heavyweight champion Jones refused to field any questions from the media about his next fight -- and up until June 6, he still wasn't talking. Many had presumed Jones' next defense would be a rematch against No. 1 contender Gustafsson, and UFC officials had all but booked the fight for August. Although Gustaffson was ready and willing, it initially appeared that Jones had plans of his own. "Just to clear up a ...

I am interested to hear what UFC fans think of Dana White going public that Jon Jones wants Daniel Cormier next, not Alexander Gustafsson
No. 1 ranked UFC light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson has signed a deal to face champion Jon Jones. Jones has yet to sign his half of the agreement, and that does not make UFC president Dana White a happy man.
Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson are both gunning for Jon Jones' light heavyweight title. And then there's that stalemate with the UFC over a contract issue. How will Jones deal with the adversity?
White: Daniel Cormier shouldn't wait for title fight UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is renegotiating his contract with the company, so he may fight Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 177 on Aug 30, or he may not. After beating Dan Henderson Saturday night, Cormier was unequivocal about what he wants next - a title fight vs. Jones. "No matter where you go boy, I'm coming," said Cormier, as transcribed by FOX Sports. "You better hurry because I'm getting better." "I know nobody can wrestle me. It doesn't matter. If I decide to take Jon Jones down 100 times, I'll take him down 100 times. This is my octagon." Cormier of course was assuming Jones wins the rematch with Gustafsson. However, after the event Ariel Helwani told UFC president Dana White that Cormier wanted to wait for a title shot, and asked White if he agreed. "No," said White definitively. "Those are always bad ideas. When you think you want a layoff, somebody gets hurt, you know... We'll see what happens - if he ends up fighting somebody else. ...

UFC 172: Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson rematch looks to be a lock now that "Bones" has disposed of Glover Teixeira by way of unanimous decision last Saturday night (April 26, 2014) inside the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
Tonight, Jon Jones will look to continue to leave his mark on the history books when he faces Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 for the light heavyweight title. Jones already owns the record for most successful title defenses in the UFC’s division with six, having set the mark when he bested Alexander Gustafsson last year. However, that is not the only record “Bones” holds inside the Octagon. ♦ His nine total finishes are tied with Chuck Liddell for most in the division. ♦ With five submission wins, Jones has the most at 205 pounds ever. ♦ Having defended 23 of 24 takedowns, Jones has the best takedown defense in UFC history at 95.8-percent. ♦ His 50.9-percent takedown accuracy leads all current light heavyweights and is second only to Lyoto MacHida. ♦ Along with Royce Gracie, Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre, Jones has one 10-or-more consecutive fights. They are the only four to do so inside the Octagon. Here’s a lot at some other interesting notes on the UFC 172 fighters and card: ♦ Chr ...

Alexander Gustafsson: After I beat Jimi Manuwa in London, I'm taking Jon Jones' belt But, will Glover Teixeira or Jimi Manuwa spoil the much-anticipated rematch? Alexander Gustafsson came ever-so-close to dethroning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones last year at UFC 165. But the cageside judges decided that "Bones" had done enough to retain his strap after he and "The Mauler" went at it for 25 exciting minutes in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Much to the chagrin of some fight fans. Nevertheless, the towering Swede may have a rematch against Jones to look forward to should he defeat Jimi Manuwa in the main event of this weekend's (March 8, 2014) UFC Fight Night 37 event in London, England, which airs only on UFC Fight Pass. But should he get the chance to face Jones once again, Gus plans on taking the title away from the dominant champion, not just humble him. His words: "Well, he said himself he's a lot more humble now, so, I don't know. Maybe (I did humble him), I don' ...

Shogun not dropping to 185, wants Lil Nog rematch At the beginning of this month, UFC president Dana White said that if Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua were to lose to James Te Huna at UFN 33, he would probably have a talk with him about retirement, and might also consider a drop to 185 appropriate. Shogun was coming off a decision loss to Alexander Gustafsson and a submission loss to Chael Sonnen. He has not had a win streak since 2009, when he knocked out Mark Coleman and Chuck Liddell in compelling fashion. However, Shogun shone vs. Te Huna, earning a tremendous knockout. And now the Brazilian has announced he plans to stay not just in the game, but at 205. "I’ll stay at 205," Rua said to MMAFighting.com. "There’s no way (I can drop to 185). I spoke with my team after the fight and they said I shouldn’t, so I won’t. I’ll stay at 205." "The light-heavyweight division is the toughest division. I won two world titles in this division, so I’m adapted to it. My dream is to win the title again, but I’m . ...

Also saw Meisha Tate, Dan Henderson, Damien Maia, Forrest Griffen, Frank Trigg, Brendan Schaub, Travis Browne, Chris Weidman. Plus the added bonus of meeting some greats at the weigh ins - Royce Gracie, Mark Coleman, Dan Severn and Art Jimmerman. Best weekend ever! Btw Vegas was pretty cool too :)
UFC: Beyond the Octagon is starting right now on BT Sport 1. Feat. Andy Ogle, John Hathaway, Alexander Gustafsson - Don't miss it!
Official UFC rankings updated after UFC Fight Night 32: Vitor Belfort holds at No. 2, Dan Henderson plummets to No. 7 Vitor Belfort is next in line for a title shot. Dan Henderson is not. In fact, "Hendo" may have been tossed from the division title chase for good, after suffering his third straight loss, a first round knockout at the hands (and feet) of "The Phenom" last weekend (Nov. 9, 2013) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 32 on FOX Sports 1 in Brazil (watch it). It also sent him tumbling down the rankings. True, "Hendo" only fell one spot, but at 43 years of age, even one place in line is a monumental setback, especially with the invasion of heavyweight Daniel Cormier. And let's not forget about Jimi Manuwa, who could insert himself into the top 10 by upsetting Alexander Gustafsson next year in London. For now, there's just no room in the ranks for "Poster Boy." If you're wondering how the world's largest MMA promotion (in conjunction with FightMetric) compiles its list, here's the criteria: Rank ...
Why did UFC President Dana White give Jimi Manuwa the fight against Alexander Gustafsson instead of Daniel Cormier? Because "DC" has yet to prove he can make the 205 pound weight limit and the event is being held in London, "Poster Boy's" backyard.

UFC 165 Results: Jon Jones Takes Decision Victory in Epic Battle with Alexander Gustafsson Heading into UFC 165 on Saturday night, Jon Jones was tied with UFC Hall of Famer and MMA legend Tito Ortiz for the most light heavyweight title defenses in company history, with five. However, Swedish stand-up artist Alexander Gustafsson had plans of his own and if Jones was going to earn his record-breaking sixth title defense, “The Mauler” was going to make sure he would have to go through *** and back to achieve his goal. In front of the raucous Canadian faithful inside the packed Air Canada Centre in Toronto, not only did Gustafsson unleash his own version of MMA *** on “Bones,” but both fighters, in the process, earned the adoration and respect of all across the MMA landscape, in what will surely go down as one of the greatest title fights in UFC history. Round one opened with Gustafsson taking the reigns almost immediately. The Swede stalked the youngest champion in UFC history with a purpose and ...

I'm now 5 and 1 in the UFC and Shogun needs a rebound (me) to get him back to contention. I approached my last fight ready to lose against Ryan Jimmo and will not be doing this again.

According to Dana White, Alexander Gustafsson could be next in line for a title shot if he beats Gegard Mousasi. Gustafsson vs Mousasi, UFC Fuel 9 April 6th, Sweden
Jon Jones discusses facing potential opponents across two weight classes Anderson Silva: "Who knows what the future holds? It could happen, who knows?" Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira: "I think they're both awesome fighters. I think they're both exactly what the light heavyweight division needed. More opponents and top opponents that have fan interest. Whoever makes it to the title shot first, I'll be ready for them, for sure." The most challenging opponent coming over from Strikeforce at light heavyweightT: "Probably Gegard. Gegard Mousasi, I would say. He's pretty tough." Matt Hamill: "I don't see that fight happening. I'm not sure if he's still working with the UFC anymore. Things happen. Being undefeated would bring a lot more stress and pressure to my life. I'm grateful to not being undefeated." Chael Sonnen: "If he has a doctor's note for his TRT, then whatever. I'm looking for the greatest challenge and Chael being older, I don't want that to be a disadvantage for him at all.

Alexander Gustafsson: Gegard Mousasi bout won't go to a decision -Captain Morgan
Stockholm, Sweden, Saturday, April 6th. Alexander Gustafsson will face off against former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi in the main event! --Brian
Ja! Surging Light Heavyweight prospect, and top division contender, Alexander Gustafsson, will have his hands full at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, on April 6, 2013, when he welcomes former Strikeforce 185-pound champion, Gegard Mousasi, to the world's leading mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion at UFC on FUEL TV 9. Kimura.se recently revealed that sweet showdown, which will likely serve as the main event, is in the works. It's a match up that may not come as a surprise to most fight fans because Mousasi has been beating the drum, albeit in his quiet, monotone fashion, to hook 'em with Gustafsson upon his UFC transition. And like fellow Strikeforce stablemates Daniel Cormier and Gilbert Melendez -- who both called out Frank Mir and Ben Henderson, respectively -- his wish was apparently granted. "I'm not challenging (Alexander Gustafsson), but I think that's a good fight," said Mousasi in this post-fight interview after he defeated Mike Kyle via submission last weekend at Strikeforce's fina ...

UFC on FOX 5 was filled with phenomenal wins and disappointing losses. Alexander Gustafsson was the biggest winner when he took out MMA legend Mauricio Rua, while B.J. Penn was the biggest loser with his loss to Rory MacDonald. Find out why inside!
Fights to make after UFC on Fox 5 (Main card only) - Chris Last nights fights were amazing to say the least! I must say I've been under-rating Matt Brown heavily, he doesn't even look like the same fighter anymore and every single time I see him out there he is improving drastically. Time for a step up in competition (a big name fight if you will). I'd like to see Brown take on Dan Hardy. I'm still a Swick fan but he looked confused as *** out there and I can't blame him. Matt Brown had brought it and Swick never seemed to be safe any where. I'm thinking Swick/ Sadollah..that would be a very fun fight for the fans. Rory MacDonald...he tore BJ Penn apart worse than I've ever seen. He's clearly the future and I say give the kid what he wants...a rematch with Carlos Condit. He's more than earned it and everyone wants to see that fight. Alexander Gustafsson not only looked good but he looked good against a Shogun Rua that was actually ready to fight mentally, physically, and in shape. Now I have no argument . ...

Chael Sonnen's picks for this Saturday's event: "First off I like both guys. But I think were gonna have a new champion in Nate Diaz. Shogun Rua vs. Alexander Gustafsson is the one I'm looking forward to the most. Shoguns a legend and Gustafsson's on the rise, Gustafsson's gonna have some significant reach. And after his fight with Thiago Silva he looked good. I'm going with Gustafsson for the upset. I also think with B.J. Penn people need to believe the hype. I think he's as good as everybody says he is. When a guy comes out of retirement to take on a young guy in a new generation. It shows nothing but courage. I'm going with B.J. Penn!" --Brian
