Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones may be stuck in career limbo, following his latest infraction with drug testers. But, he’s not short on getting called out by the absolute best fighters the UFC has to offer.
Daniel Cormier has many times stated that he wants a third fight with his career nemesis, and former UFC title challenger Alexander Gustafsson is in line right behind D.C.
Gustafsson has recently been on the campaign trail for a Jon Jones rematch. He’s said multiple times recently that if Jon is suspended from MMA for an extended period, that he’d happily face his rival in the boxing ring.
