Gustafsson Next For Jones, Could Happen In Sweden

Following UFC 172 this past weekend, UFC President Dana White made the announcement that Jon Jones next opponent will be the man who gave him his toughest test too date, Alexander Gustafsson.

“Gustafsson gets the next fight against Jones,” said UFC President Dana White at the post-fight press conference. “We gotta see how that plays out. I don’t know, physically, how Jones is right now.”

“We’ve got to take the fight wherever the fight is going to do the best,” said White. “This thing could do 50 or 60,000 seats or more. If we go to Europe to do it, we will.”

“Jon’s going to agree to whatever fight we make,” said White. “What’s Jon going to agree to? Where’s he going to want to fight? Seattle?”

“Sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do. We don’t ever have people say, ‘This is where I’m going to fight my fight.’ It’s never happened. It won’t happen. We’ve got to take the fight wherever the fight is going to do the best.”

As for Jones, he showed no interest in talking about Gustafsson Saturday night:

“I don’t really want to talk about… I don’t really wanna talk about that kid at all,” said Jones. “I’m not gonna talk about him at all. No, man. I’m having a good time. I just won a fight.”

“I have no clue when I want to fight again. I’m not really thinking about the future at this point. I just want to live in the moment right now and just be grateful with what’s happening right now.”
