Fighting me is not good for your image @AlexTheMauler FYIJon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson in Moscow?
UFC President Dana White recently said the promotion was headed to Russia in 2013 for a live event (see those comments here) and longtime M-1 Global President Vadim Finkelchtein was recently spotted at UFC on FUEL TV 9 in Sweden (pic).
Where Gustafsson currently resides.
Nothing has been announced or confirmed by UFC and should not be considered anywhere remotely close to official, as Jones (who said he wants this fight) still has to be medically cleared from his recent toe injury, but for fans expecting fireworks in the 205-pound division later this year, this is certainly encouraging news.
Jon Jones’ Return Could Be Delayed By Ligament Damage
Jon Jones' Return Could Be Delayed By Ligament Damage - MMAFrenzy.com | RM Sports
While speaking at a media event Thursday to promote this Saturday’sUFC 160, UFC President Dana White reported the following about Jones’ recovery (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“He says he feels great, the toe’s healing good, but the problem is that ligament. That ligament popped. Anytime you tear a ligament, blood flow helps repair the thing and heal, and you don’t get a lot of blood flow to the toe. Who knows? This thing could be six weeks, it could be six months. It’s a pain in the ass, man. Always some little, crazy thing.”
