Report: Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson II In The Works For UFC 218

To date, not a single fighter signed to the UFC roster has posed more of a threat to the Jon Jones era of combat like sweden’s Alexander Gustafsson.

True, Jones defeated the top ranked UFC light-heavyweight when they first fought, but his decision win was not decisive and was even somewhat controversial.

With Jones having just returned against Daniel Cormier, and regained his undisputed world title, there’s not much left for Jon at 205.

In steps Alexander Gustafsson, who’s been clamoring for a rematch ever since he lost to Jones.

According to Swedish reports, which we deem viable, their rematch is in the works.

Here’s what they said: (Translated)

Since Jon Jones managed to recover the lightweight heavyweight belt with an impressive knockout win in the return match against rivals Daniel Cormier on UFC 214, in principle, the entire MMA world has agreed that Swedish Alexander Gustafsson should be his next title challenger.

And now it seems that the UFC also agrees. Sources of MMAnytt state that discussions on a title match between Jones and Gustafsson are currently taking place, which is likely to take place at UFC 218 in Detroit, Michigan, on December 2nd.
