you know what man, read back a page or two on my posts and you will see that Bonnar was the first name I came up with too when I thought who Gus should face next, and you know what your right, Hendo should be up next his name slipped my mind but thats exactly who should be next in line to take on the Jones/Evans winner.

That post was based entirely on the assumption there was no one else to fight for the title so may as well be him, but Hendo should be the one up next and Gus should have to take another fight first.

Gustafson is trainning with some really good wrestlers.

Gustafson will probalbly never become as skilled at wrestling as Rashad or Davis but in MMA all you need to do is get good enough to neutralize your opponents game to make it irrelevant (I could give you plenty of examples).

Hes only 25 with some solid wins and only 1 loss, he'll get better, how good only time will tell.
Actually historically Sweden has arguably the second strongest wrestling tradition in the world, behind only Russia.

Little wrestling 101 for you guys.
