Gustafsson Puts UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jones On Notice That He Is Next In Line

UFC Sports Betting

Alexander Gustafsson has nothing to lose. So when he called out UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones ahead of his upcoming UFC on Fuel TV event against former Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi it actually made a lot of sense. Gustafsson is one of the most improved fighters in the UFC over the past couple of years, and has established himself as a top prospect in the light heavyweight division with a couple of notable sports betting wins over Thiago Silva and Mauricio Rua. Gustafsson will take a major step forward in the division if he can take down Mousasi in his native-Sweden, and there is little doubt that he has taken the necessary steps to become one of the next big names in the UFC.

One of the biggest differences for Gustafsson is the way that he has worked so hard to improve on his natural skill set. At 6’5’’ and 205 pounds, Gustafsson is blessed with the natural size and reach advantage to become a champion fighter, but the onus is on him to make the changes to win. When Gustafsson lost to Phil Davis via submission at the UFC 112 event back in April of 2010, it represented a turning point in his career.

Gustafsson joined up with Davis at Alliance MMA and made a commitment to improving his technique and becoming a more well-rounded fighter. That is exactly what he has done in the three years since, and it is reflected in the online sports betting review site results he has registered in the Octagon. Gustafsson has put together six-straight wins including two via submission and two via knockout, and a seventh-straight victory over quality opponent will provide another boost on the road to contending for a title.

That is why it makes so much sense that Gustafsson chose now to call out Jones, and let him know that he will be next in line for a championship bout with a victory over Mousasi. Gustafsson’s confidence is a breath of fresh air at a time where so many have been rumored to back down from the online sports betting review site opportunity to fight Jones, who has emerged as one of the most dominant champions in the UFC. Jones has had his way with opponents time and again over the past two years, and while Gustafsson might not be ready to challenge him for a title just yet, he is definitely on the radar.

Gustafsson has come a long way since he first broke in to the promotion, and one more impressive Top Rated online sportsbook result could lead UFC President Dana White to giving him that No. 1 contender shot. Gustafsson has put the UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jones on notice that he is next in line should be take out Mousassi, and while we first have to see how he handles the main event at the UFC on Fuel TV event there is no doubt Gustafsson has improved enough that he will have a legitimate shot at a title soon.
