Jones: Are Cormier and Gustafsson afraid to fight each other?
When Alexander Gustafsson beat Jimmy Manuwa at UFN 27 in London, UFC president Dana White announced that “The Mauler” would get the next shot at the winner of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones vs. challenger Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in April.
Gustafsson said he thought it was Jones he would be fighting, but Jones says he thinks Gustafsson needs one more fight first.
“Why not give the winner of Alexander and [Daniel Cormier] the winner of myself and Glover??” asked Jones on Twitter. “Call me what you want but I can't be the only person who thinks that makes perfect sense. I see DC congratulating Alexander and making comments about waiting his turn now. I wonder if they're afraid to fight each other? People who don't like to think are quick to call me afraid. Think about it, I'm asking for the meanest of the two would you face winner of Phil vs Anthony?”
