Gustafsson: I’m going to shock the world Saturday


The odds for Saturday's world title fight between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson range from 9-1 to 20-1 for 'Bones.'

However, you don't know what is going to happen in mixed martial arts, which is why you have the fight. And Gustafsson isn't taking any of the doubters personally.

“Not at all. I don’t takes anything personally," said 'The Mauler. "I don’t read too much. I don’t think too much. I’m going to go in there and shock the world on Saturday."

“I’m more than prepared. I can’t wait to get in there. I’m just living the dream right now. I’ve got a one in a lifetime shot and I’m going to do the best of it.”

Jones thinks Gustafsson's best is not good enough.

“I think I have a lot more tools in this fight to win the fight,” said Jones.

“I’m going to do all kinds of unpredictable spinning elbows, flying knees, shots, fake shots, all types of stuff. He really needs to be on his game.”

“I’m fighting a guy who throws punches. Alexander’s boxing defence, I’ve said it a lot of times now, is not that good … He’s a good puncher, he has pretty good footwork. Not a great boxer."

Jones famously has Phillippians 4:13 tatooed on his chest - “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

By contrast, Gustafsson adds a shark tooth every time he wins.

What do you think UG? Does "The Mauler" add another shark tooth, or will Jones win again through him who gives Bones strength?

He may have "lost", but Gustafsson shocked me. He made Jones look human and seriously fucked him up.If Gustafsson can reach 2.0 status and build from this he will win the rematch. Which would make him 2-0 against Jones.

I was shocked, I alway thought Gus would be the one to out point Bones, and possibly edge out a decision if they fought. Never did I predict he would take it to the champ so incredibly. The way he just walked out and started landing shots was incredible, he never gave Jon the breathing room to get into his stalking mode, and had him guessing the whole fight. Was awesome to watch.

He almost shocked the world.  Machida clipped him.  Vitor nearly arm barred him.  Yet he always came back and destroyed them. Gus showed he was prepared for any takedowns and pushed Jones  to his limits.  Jones could have bowed out like so many of his anti-fans wanted, but instead pushed himself. Bloodied and beaten, Jones showed the heart of a what a champion is. Can some of you finally give him the respect he deserves?
