Another great weekend for the UFC is coming up with a very exciting fight between Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Johnson. Both are seasoned fighters looking for a chance at Champion Jon Jones. Gustafsson will be fighting in his native Sweden for this fight, which should up the odds for him to get in the Octagon a second time against the champ. I’m of the opinion that Anthony Johnson is definitely no slouch of a fighter. Gustafsson is ranked as the # 1 contender in the light heavyweight division and Johnson is #3 and recently has had impressive wins against #14 Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and #5 Phil Davis. Gustafsson only has two career losses with his first being to Phil Davis and last being to Jones for the belt. Anthony Johnson’s win over Davis in 2014 shows that he is game for this fight and very well could shut the Swedish crowd up. I love Johnson as a fighter and have been very impressed with Gustafsson’s ability to trade blows with the worlds best. Should be an amazing 5 round fight, and whoever wins will get their chance. I see this going the distance. Who wins will be up to the judges! I can’t wait!
