    Gus is going to win it you watch. Gus will be champ. Jones will get a rematch in no-time and it will put a mark on his career but I think Jones will do just fine. Maybe even move up to HW after. But Gus gun do, what Gus gun do.

    As a side note, I think Jones wants this fight because he wants to prove that he can win even when he isn't at a massive size/reach advantage. He still has a large reach advantage over Gus I believe but I think that is the point of this for him. This fight is going to be different for Jones. He isn't going to be able to hang on the outside and control the fight like he has before. He won't be manhandling Gus either. Although this can obviously go Jones way as he is more fluid, athletic and I think more rounded, Gus ...I don't know, but I have a feeling that Gus is going to upset the champ on this one. I can't wait to see how Jones handles getting smacked and grappled more than once in a fight.
    I am on the path now. May I have the strength to overcome this.

    I haven't seen anything to suggest that Gustafsson is superior to Jones in any area, even striking. Jones has faced tougher strikers than Gus has, and has looked better against the same opponents. If the 205 lb division existed without Jones he could even be a champ with the right path, but there's no way. I give it to Jones in a 1st round submission (like Davis did, and Shogun almost did).

    Man I think a lot of people don't realize that Alexander's reach is only like 76.5"

    over the past couple months I always hear about people saying "alexander would give JJ his best fight because they have similar reach"
    .. literally on so many different websites, dozens of comment saying that.

    He uses his reach very well, but it's still 8" under Jones'


    Pushing that aside though, I am looking forward to this fight.. but I think JJ will remain the champ.

    You guys are crazy. No way Gus goes down in the 1st. The two will probably spend a good portion of the first just feeling each other out, finding their reach and testing each other. I hope it will be a war and I bet it goes all 5. Jones is a great fighter, like him or not he is talented. I think over-all Jones has the advantages coming into this but Gus is capable of taking Jones belt and I bet he is going to do it.
    I am on the path now. May I have the strength to overcome this.

    Gus does not lose in the first round but he is getting finished by Jon Jones. only man I have seen contend with Bones is Machida and we all saw how that eventually ended up. To all who want to see Bones lose, it is going to be to the likes of JDS, Cain, or maybe Anderson Silva (who has a larger reach than Gus). also going to bring up that gus lost to phil davis. the height might be there but the reach isn't. Bones wins this within the first 3 rounds because he is just light yrs ahead of all the other light heavywights. will see him lose if JDS, Cain, and a lot of the heavyweights who are used to his kind of reach fight him but no way Bones loses as light heavy even though a lot of us want him 2.

    This fight pisses me off similar to how people were pissed off at Sonnen getting the shot and how they should have been (I still don't know why nobody seemed to be) when Vitor got the shot at the title.

    Gustafsson decisions Rua, nearly pulls a Jon Jones by almost ruining an entire card in his own country of Sweden, doesn't end up fighting Mousassi like he was supposed to, starts to call out Jones even though he hurt the company's reputation at the very minimum in Sweden, and yet he ends up getting the fight even though Teixeira has a 4 fight UFC win streak, of which 3 were finishes and the other was Rampage, and a 19 fight win streak total.

    So basically you get rewarded for not fighting when you were supposed to.

    Does this make sense to anybody else?

    Not at all. Gusty has the physical attributes to beat Jones, he's just not on par with the actual skills. I think that's where people are in denial. I'd give my left nut for Gustafson to pull out the W, but I'm not betting money on it.

    More excited for this than any Bones fight since Bader (long before anyone knew how good he'd be). Glad it's not a Machida or Rua massacre of a rematch. I like Hendo, but that wasn't going to be pretty either.

    Still think Jones takes it. Probably see more of his takedown game to mix up the striking.

    He deserves it as much as anyone else in the division.

    Machida already lost to him and beat KO'd Bader but only narrowly edged a 43 year old Henderson by SD in an uneventful fight.
    Teixiera beat an old ass Rampage with his foot already half way out the door and James Tehuna (lol).

    Who else? Gus was the most logical choice coming with a 6 fight win streak.

    Does this make sense to anybody else?
    I think you are kind of changing how things went down though....

    http://www.mmaweekly.com/its-officia...v-9-main-event

    "Swedish MMA Federation President George Sallfeldt told MMANYTT.se after the initial examination on March 30, adding that Gustafsson wanted to go ahead with the fight, but “this is a medical decision and not up to Alexander himself.”

    Doctors on Tuesday officially declared Gustafsson unfit to fight."
    I am on the path now. May I have the strength to overcome this.

    who would you have next? Machida, who already got put to sleep by Bones? move up to heavyweight when he still has viable contenders in his division, and most of the interesting guys are already scheduled?

    someone has to fight him, unless they wanna put three flyweights against him or something on an indian reservation

    Machida should be getting the shot, but Gus beat a good Shogun. He was in shape and didn't gas until the 3rd round, and that was only because he got hit with a nice kick to the body that sucked the wind out of him. Rua looked good in that fight.

    I already said I think that Teixeira should have gotten the shot first. Gustafsson should have had to fight Mousassi like he was supposed to and the winner of that fight would have gotten the next title shot
