    I already said that a month ago, saying that Jones is going to get Gustafsson to fight Cormier first.

    Alexander Gustafsson: Jon Jones 'didn't perform like he used to' at UFC 172
    "He didn't perform like he used to" could be 2014's version of "I'm not impressed by your performance."
    "He was dominating Glover from the beginning, no doubt about it," Gustafsson said. "But, I don't know it seemed like he didn't perform like he used to do. I thought that, I don't know, he did enough to win the fight basically.

    "We used to see spectacular things with Jon Jones when he fights. He mixed things up and he did it in this fight too. But he didn't do it like he used to do in his previous fights."

    For his part, Jones hasn't wanted to say too much about Gustafsson, whom Jones is expected to rematch in his next fight. At the UFC 172 post-fight press conference, Jones refused to talk about "that kid," and in a FOX Sports interview, he referred to Gustafsson as arrogant.

    Gustafsson takes this as a sign he has gotten into Jones' head.

    "I think I'm in his head now," Gustafsson said. "I've been learning a lot in my years, it's not just the fight itself, its a lot mentally fighting each other, that's something I learned later days. I realize now it's very important. I think it's all in his head now and he gets irritated just by my name. I think that's good. I'm not a trash talker, that's not my thing. But if someone asks me, I'm going to say what I feel and what I think."

    People get injured in training camp all the time, that is hardly a psychic prediction.

    If I was Jones, I would request the fight to be in Vegas. They would loose sooo much money in Sweeden, as Americans tend to shun overseas PPVs due to the time difference. Also, fuck fighting in his opponents home country, Jones is champ. MERICA

    I agree with Gus. I was expecting something reminisant of the Vladdy and Vera fights but it was nothing of the sort.

    Are you really comparing Glover to Vera & the Janitor?

    Yeah, that's not really fair to Vladdy.

    Jones wasn't as flashy this time but his offense in the clinch was still slick. I do agree though that goose is in jon's head. He seems real irritated getting asked questions relating to fighting Gustafson. Goose is the only guy to come close to beating him. He's also Jones' next opponent. He's going to be asked questions.

    At a media scrum, DW said if they do it in Sweden it would be at the normal North American time. Though his justification was that there's 24 hour day or night around that time in Sweden anyway, which seems like a bizarre justification at best...

    I wouldn't mind the fight in Sweden but that 4am shit is absurd. And if Jones gets smashed, the fangirl club would come with all excuses they can grasp.
