The next light heavyweight title fight is set and the champ is already firing shots. When Alexander Gustafsson became the first man to give Jon Jones a serious challenge for his light heavyweight title back at UFC 165 on Sept. 21, 2013, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, it was clear the two would need to run it back in a rematch. Not immediately, of course. No, the two would each have to clear a hurdle first. Gustafsson did as much when he stopped Jimi Manuwa at UFC Fight Night 37 back on March 8 in read news >>

Anthony Johnson is a night owl these days. The UFC’s No. 3-ranked light heavyweight arrived in Stockholm, Sweden, late last week to prepare for Saturday’s title eliminator against Alexander Gustafsson. At least some of that prep work involves keeping late hours. To stay acclimated for an event scheduled to kick off at 2 a.m. local time, Johnson told Bleacher Report he’s keeping his body clock on Florida time. That means he’s staying up all night, starting his hotel training sessions at 2:30-3:00 read news >>

Like many MMA fans, I'd love to see Jon Jones fight Alexander Gustafsson again, but the bout with Daniel Cormier Saturday in Las Vegas at UFC 182 is Bones' defining fight. We may never see a more genuinely hate-charged buildup for a bout. I've seen plenty of fights in boxing and MMA where the hype was about as real as a unicorn. Call me gullible, but I'm a believer in the bad blood between Bones and DC. Apparently, I'm not alone—Bleacher Report's Jeremy Botter and Jonathan Snowden are apparently read news >>

Like Joe Rogan said after the doctor rushed in to check on Mauricio Rua: "It wasn't even a struggle." Jon Jones would barely struggle in any of his fights outside of Alexander Gustafsson, after beating the brakes off the legendary Brazilian way back at UFC 128. But that could all change when he collides with Daniel Cormier at the UFC 182 pay-per-view (PPV) event next weekend (Sat., Jan. 3, 2015) in Las Vegas, Nevada, as "DC" has done some smashing of his own (proof).

Which is why "Rumble" is confused as to why "The Mauler" is trying to belittle his status, when it wasn't too long ago that no one knew who the Swede was. Alexander Gustafsson's star seemed to shine a bit brighter after his epic five-round battle against Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, at UFC 165 last September. While "The Mauler" came up short on the judges' scorecards, his valiant effort shot him to super stardom and earned him praise from the ZUFFA read news >>

One of the casualties of Jon Jones having to postpone his light heavyweight title defense against Daniel Cormier until January was Alexander Gustafsson, the original No. 1 contender. The Swede Gustafsson was forced out of his fight with Jones due to a meniscus tear, and was replaced with Cormier, who put his own knee troubles aside to get the shot with Jones. Then, just as UFC 178 blew up with the press conference brawl between Jones and Cormier, Jones was forced to delay the fight with a leg in read news >>
