    I will win. There's nothing else for me. I will not go match against Jones with the attitude of 'I'll make a good match.' I will win, it's that simple."
    Maybe in the playstation or Xbox yes.
    In the real fight I see Jones being superior in absolutely all aspects.

    Alexander Gustafsson 'not a fan' of Jon Jones, calls UFC 165 opponent 'little brat in adult body'
    http://www.mmamania.com/2013/9/11/47...es-ufc-165-mma

    Following a joint media stop in "The Mauler's" home country of Sweden, "Bones" expressed how there was no real heat between the two. Or so he thought. Based on a recent interview with Kimura.se, the towering Swede painted a very different picture.

    "He's a little brat in an adult's body. A very immature boy in a grown man's body. It is Jones. It's like you give a shit kid everything. Why do you not speak up, you just say 'yes, yes,' everything that a kid asks for. Since there are no limits, it is all haywire. No, his behavior then ... No, I'm not a fan of it, if I may say so."

    Damn, those are some fighting words.

    It will be interesting to see if comments like these make the incumbent 205-pound champion change his tune about Gustafsson going forward. So, is this anger or disdain something that the challenger will use to his advantage come Sep. 21?

    Not if he can help it.

    "I am a professional and have great respect for Jones as a fighter. There are not many who can do what he has done and he deserves all the respect. But as a person, as a role model, I'm really not a fan, I try not to have feelings when I go off, whether good or bad. You should never fight with emotions, then you lose focus and then you lose. I will win. There's nothing else for me. I will not go match against Jones with the attitude of 'I'll make a good match.' I will win, it's that simple."

    To me Jones uses his kicks than his punches to make his reach look so good. I don't think Jones is a great striker, but uses everything and avoids getting hit very well. I was really impressed with the way he tossed Sonnen around, and the use of his elbows.

    I'll go out on a limb and say that Gus triangle chokes JBJ.

    Bones is right, but for the wrong reasons. In my opinion, he credits his striking prowess too much, his reach combined with his wrestling keep his opponents at bay, and make his striking look better than it is.

    Maybe he hit a late growth spurt....

    Jones by 1st or 2nd round TKO.

    Now that he's fighting Jones he's gonna claim his reach has been wrong all along. Ufc will do anything to sell a fight, like when they said Carwin was bigger than brock lol.

    Unfortunately he is right. And as much as I dislike Jones, and I think he will easily dominate Gustafsson.
