No.1light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson lost the title fight to Jon Jones in the judges’ eyes back in September, but true MMA fans who saw the back-and-forth battle clearly know what’s up. In my opinion, Gustafsson should be defending the strap and not working his way up to another title shot. It’s just a matter of time before the strap is officially around his waist, however, Gustafsson will need to defeat Jimi Manuwa this weekend at UFC Fight Night 37.
It looks like in order to pull off an entertaining win, Gustafsson is practicing the infamous “Showtime Kick” for Manuwa. I’m curious to see if he tries this in the Octagon against a real opponent, so make sure you tune in on Saturday for the fight.
