Gustafsson: Jon Jones Knows I will Get The Belt

Quote:
ďPeople can say that I won the fight or that I didnít win the fight, that I won the scorecards or anything. Itís all up to the judges. I didnít do enough to win the fight and thatís enough for me. Thatís enough for me, I donít need to know anymore. It will just make me feel worse knowing anything else. But, I learned a lot from this fight, itís just going to make me stronger. Jon Jones can fight whoever he wants and take on whoever, but I will be around him all the time and I will be ready for another fight with him.Ē

ďHe can say whatever he wants, but, Iím not done. Iím not happy with the way everything ended and I want that belt. Thatís my big goal. I will have my rematch and I will get that belt one day and he knows it, too. So, I canít wait.Ē
ďYeah, you know it will be a great fight. No one should count Glover out, because heís a strong guy and he hits super-hard. Heís a strong guy. But, I think Jones has too many tools for Glover, and I think he will beat him. And for me the big goal is the belt, and if I fight Jones again and take the belt from him, thatís my dream.Ē

While appearing on this weekís edition of ĎThe MMA HourĎ, top light-heavyweight fighter, Alexander Gustafsson discussed his recent defeat at the hands of the champ Jon Jones.

Many people felt as if Gustafsson won, but at the end of the day, the judges scored in favor of Jones.

Gus is being smart by trying to keep himself relevant in the picture. The longer things go without a rematch, the less chance he will get it. But considering the options at LHW, the only ways Gus wouldn't get the next shot is if he lost his next fight, or if Gus beat Bones.

I can't help but wonder how the rematch with Lyoto would have went, but I'm glad I got to see Vitor fight for the title. There are quite a few glaring holes in the LHW champ's game. It's also very difficult to overcome due to his athletic prowess.

It looks like he's plateaued while Gustaf strangely is still peaking as demonstrated with his takedown defense.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Exactly. Gustafsson improved 10% from his last bouth with Shogun. With Jones I could see no visual improvement. If Gus keeps this tempo up he will be very well rounded and better than Jones within a year.

It is also not strange. Some guys peak very sharply and early while some peak a few years later in a steady improving pace. Look at Evander Holyfield and Bernard Hopkins for example. Both at their peak when they were way over 30.

Well at least Gus can accept that he lost unlike his fans. Jones has already beat everyone else so dominantly I dont see it being too long until we get to enjoy a rematch.

Gustaf always was a bad fight for Jon, everyone just got blinded by the hype. Watch the fights, not the replays.

I would very much like to see a healthy hand Vitor against Bones again.

I'm 90% certain that when they fight again, Jon will be at least at 85%, which means Gus would have to be at 100% to have anything better than a 50% chance. Mind you, there's a 20% chance that Tex manages to beat Jones, in which case Gus would only need 80% to have a good 75% chance of taking the Belt before Jones gets his second shot.
