Alexander Gustafson is currently riding six fight winning streak in the UFC's lightheavyweight division and has defeated some notables names, however, he knows very well that Jon Jones will be his toughest fight to date: 

“I see the greatest test in my career,” said Gustafsson on Tuesday at a press conference promoting the upcoming event.  “He’s the champion for a reason.  I’m so ready for this fight.  I’m very motivated.”

“I’m so pumped for this fight,” he said.  “He’s a complete fighter.  He’s the champion.  I have to be aware of everything he throws.”

Gus will do better than anyone Jones has fought, will he win? I'm not sure. one thing I do know for sure is that he's NOT getting destroyed. at worst he loses a UD. I'll SN bet that Jones doesn't finish Gustaffson, kind of a pussy bet but there are so many people saying Gus is getting destroyed and finished.

None of ya'll are thinkin clear. Your brains are still fuzzy from the Silva loss. People are thinking that since Silva went down, why not Jones, too?

Truth is, Jon will thoroughly embarrass Gus. I think Jones is hungry for a spectacular performance, and this fight will remind people how unbeatable Bones is.

Gus will have nothing for Jon. People talk about Gus' improvement on the ground, but it doesn't matter. Jon has always been far superior on the ground, and he's improving right along with Gus, so AG hasn't gained any 'ground' (pun intended).

Jones is bigger (shoulders and back dwarf that of Gus), stronger, more athletic, has more diverse striking, has better subs, and is a monster in close and on the ground.

I think Jon wants not only to win, but to demonstrate his dominance. Jon is going to force the fight inside, in the clinch and on the ground. He's not going to fight from the outside on the feet where Gus' only real chance to score is. Jones is taking it to AG's weakness and his own strength. He's going to control and brutalize Gus in close quarters. No way is this going the distance. Jon is already thinking legacy. He will end it either by tko or sub. This won't go 3 full rounds.

Uugh unfortunately you are right. I just hope he might be able to get a few jabs and perhaps a sweet little uppercut in before it happens.

I do think he will at least make it to the third round.

Alexander is a great fighter but he just has nothing for the wrestling of JBJ.....so JBJ future GOAT (i think that is a pretty safe bet unless he is ''forced'' to move up to heavyweight...not seeing him do to well against Cain).
