It would appear that reports of Alexander Gustafsson suffering a broken hand were indeed false. “The Mauler” told MMAJunkie.com that he is okay and eyeing a late summer return.
While, an exact timeline for his return has yet to be decided. It does seem, however, that the Swede will not be stepping in against former champion “Shogun” Rua next month. “I hope I can fight the end of the summer or somewhere around there,” said the prospect. Gustafsson, who currently sits in the favorable position of bordering title contention, is likely one win away from a match-up with the winner of the Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson title tilt.
