On the road to "Mr Wonderful", Alexander Gustafsson traning and highlight video.

He is around 220 pounds right now. This video is from a Swedish site, if you get tired of all the Swedish jibberish fast forward 1 or 2 minutes to get to the traning + highlight parts. :thumbsup:


Can't wait untill April 10!!


EDIT: A shout to Nefilim777; Alexander trains boxing at Djurgårdens boxing club (they have clubs for many sports) you see the sign at 1:34 :)

Do you think he has a decent chance against Davis?

I was impressed when i saw him in Manchester and the 3/1 plus odds you can get seem appealing even if Davis is a beast.

I think he's going to get out muscled and beat up, to put it simply. He's not particularly big for a 205, and Phil Davis is huge.

Inkdot with the good find on Gustafsson! :thumb02:

I think that he has a great chance as long as he can keep the fight standing. I am interested to see how he does against a wrestler.

He's 6'5. Not overly thick though, but not exactly small. I don't think he's going to get beat up. If Davis is going to win it will be through control, I don't recall him being able to inflict much damage on Stann.

i don't understand the huge underdog status gustafsson has with the bookies. he's +300 on most sites. Davis has a good wrestling base sure, he's still in his prospect stage as is gustafsson. i'd have davis as the favirote don't get me wrong but those odds are a little rediculous.

Hence the reason why I might be betting on him.. :thumb02:

Alexander is of decent size as a LHW, hes the tallest in the UFC rooster. I don't know if he will get outmuscled or not. Davis is an awesome wrestler but he has NO standup at all and his ground and pound is not perfect. This means that Alexander most likely has 15 minutes of fighting to give him the chance to deliver Ko by boxing whenever the opportunity presents itself.

If he looses it will give him some time to practise even more wrestling. I think he has pretty decent TDD because he trains with some really good Swedish wrestlers (if you check the olympics or world championships we are not too shabby when it comes to wrestling) but I just don't know how he will perform in this fight because hes never faced a wrestler like Davis.

This will be a test for sure and I'm super excited to see if he holds or folds!

and not just any wrestler an NCAA title champ and 2009 No Gi World Jiu-Jitsu Champion. Plus he looked pretty good for a new-comer against brian stann. thats why i've parlayed him with bj and silva.

dont know much about Gustafsson other than hes got a good standup and last guy he beat he accidently low blowed him and then right after knocked him out. i suggest phil davis

I'm sorry. Not to take anything away from Davis but beeing the world champion for jiu jitsu blue belts is kinda like winning a reward for beeing the worlds most intelligent retarded man. I mean blue belt? Come on!

I really cant understand why they hold "world championships" for anything under black lol, or why even bother with belt color, just let the best man win, If a purple belt wins he must be better then all the black belts and therefore world champ?
