Countdown to UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson


UFC 165’s headlining Light Heavyweight title bout between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson from Air Canada Centre in Toronto is almost upon us, and the UFC has released the next in their series of ‘Countdown’ videos. 

Check out the buildup to the fight, which is billed as featuring the only opponent for that is actually taller than Jones. The 6’5″ Gustafsson actually appears quite confident heading into Saturday night:

“Everything he’s gonna throw at me, I’ve seen before.”

But can he stop it? No one else has, and the only time Jones was in true danger was against Vitor Belfort, a fight he came back to win with a submission. Is ‘The Mauler’ the one to finally dethrone ‘Bones’?

    If Alex can get inside and outside of Jone's reach he's got a shot.

    • Yeah he's got ONE until he hits the mat.

    • Maybe Jones will accidently hit Gus in the head with his funny bone while elbowing him and Gus will get his chance.
