At UFC on FOX 14, Alexander Gustafsson will look to secure another shot at light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones, by defeating fellow contender, Anthony Johnson. If “The Mauler” can do so, it will mark the third time that he’s in fact ‘earned’ a title shot.
If you recall, following Gustafsson’s memorable decision loss to Jones in September, 2013, the Swedish fighter was booked to fight Jimi Manuwa. The UFC announced that Gustafsson would lock up a rematch with Jones, provided he won the March, 2014 bout.
Well, as you can see by watching the vid below, Gustafsson handed Manuwa his first pro defeat and was booked to fight Jones. But, Gustafsson got injured, Jones was tapped to fight Cormier, and yadda, yadda, yadda, the Swedish star needs to get past Johnson on January 24th…
UFC on FOX 14 will go down at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
