Alexander Gustafson wants to be very clear that he has the longest reach in the UFC, not the number that was being widely reported by the media:
Gustafsson corrected MMAjunkie.com on the figure widely reported to be his reach.
"My reach is not 76.5," he said during a conference call in support of UFC 165, which takes place Sept. 21 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto. "It's 81.2. I just wanted to mention that."
But regardless of the rogue biographers within the UFC and on Wikipedia, Gustafsson isn't convinced that a reach disadvantage will play much of a part in the title fight, which headlines the event's pay-per-view card.
"It's not always about reach," he said. "It's about footwork. It's about being fast, getting in and out. I'm really making sure I've done my homework there. I'm super motivated."
