Gustafsson Talks About His Injury & UFC 178

During a recent interview Alexander Gustafsson talked about the recent injury that forced him to cancel his participation in the UFC 178 main event against Jon Jones. Heres what he had to say regarding the matter:

“I’m disappointed I can’t fight, but this is not the end, it’s just the beginning. I’m going to come back much stronger. I was sparring and I felt my knee pop twice, but it didn’t hurt, it just felt strange. I finished training and came home and then I woke up the next morning and I could barely walk on my right leg. Then I felt the knee right away. It’s an interesting matchbup (Cormier v Jones). Both are great athletes and it’s going to be a tough fight for sure. But Jones has his height and reach advantage over ‘DC,’ so I think that will be the key thing in this fight. I think Jones by decision. I really want to fight him.”
