Gustafsson will get next title shot with a win
Alexander Gustafsson gave Jon Jones the toughest title fight of his UFC career and and arguement could be made that Gustafsson may have done enough to win. The judges disagreed and Gustafsson didn’t complain, but now it looks like all he has to do is win one more fight to get another title shot:
“Obviously he’s got to win, but yeah, he’s fighting (Jones) next. 100-percent, that’s the next fight,” White told MMAFighing.com on Monday.
On Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, Gustafsson said that an immediate rematch was a “done deal” in his mind, but now that he must wait, he hopes Jones defeats Glover Teixeira in March 2014.
The UFC President didn’t however reveal who Gustafsson’s next opponent might be, but it is likely to be another top contender in the light heavyweight division.
