Gustafsson wants title shot after Rua bout

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

“I want fight the champ after this fight, that’s what I want to do. My focus is on Shogun 100 percent, but when I win the fight, I will – I want to fight for the belt.

What I really need to be looking out for when it comes to Shogun is his heart. He is willing to take a beating to get what he wants, so it’s a fighter you have to – the more you punch him the better he gets, so it’s a tricky opponent. Then he has really good knockout power, good kicks, he has a good double leg, take people down and leg locks, you know, that’s his thing. So it’s a tricky fighter and the best opponent so far. It will be a stand-up war. Shogun is a very aggressive fighter and he hits very hard, but he doesn’t have proper technique.

I will be fast, I will be keep my technique, keep my game plan and I will stay on the outside, and I will, you know, take my time.”
