Trainer Eric Del Fierro weighs in on Alexander Gustafsson's split from Alliance

"Now I'm in that stage of my career that I will compete three or four times a year, so I can not hold on and go off all the time," Gustafsson told Aftonbladet. "It costs too much and it takes too much time away from my family. It's simply not worth it."

Whatever is on the horizon, Gustafsson said he's as well prepared as ever. He told Aftonbladet that unlike his earlier career, he can now fly sparring partners overseas to Sweden. But it appears one partner might not be making the trip: Davis.

"We do not train with each other as much anymore," Gustafsson said.

It was all good just a week ago...

Im shocked Gus cant fly Eric Del Fierro to Sweden for a week or two.

Looks like Gus is ready to fight Davis again.

I don't think that theres any bad feelings between them. Probably just means that Gus and Davis are fighting eachother in Sweden.

Gus vs Davis II is a dumb fight to make, why break the bromance?

 

Gus vs Cormier would be way better. Cormier himself said he wanted to fight Jones at 205, seing as how this fight won't happen for another 4 months, and Cormier still needs time to slim down, this would give him plenty of time to diet down to be able to make the cut to 205.

With the way Gustaffson fought vs. Jones, money shouldn't be an issue.

Training in the US shouldn't be too costly for Gustaffson, the guy just put on an amazing show. What a gutsy kid and pure class on top of that in defeat. You would think Alex would be rewarded handsomely.

Hopefully taking too much time away from his family was the main motivating factor for the move.

its a rough life to move away from friends and family to train with a group of high caliber fighters. i think hes just saying that hes making enough money now that importing some guys is realistic and he no longer needs to leave home to train. im sure theyre still buddies.

Alliance seems to be on a roll lately, even chael trained with them for his shogun fight and he looked great. I think this is a bad move...he won't easily find that kind of quality in europe.

Gus is a country boy. He just doesn't seem like a guy who would like to live in US or at least on west coast cities like San Diego.

Might as well retire if he's only going to sparr with europeans

Did you read the story?

"I don't really make anything of it," Del Fierro said. "The kid's growing as an athlete in Sweden, and his ability to earn in Sweden is a lot bigger than it is in the U.S. His whole camp has progressed, and that's great. They've got a lot of talent over there, and hopefully, he's getting to a position where he doesn't have to leave his family."
