For those that skippedon FOX 14 over the weekend missed Alexander Gustafsson’s first TKO loss in the UFC. That’s right! On Saturday night, Anthony Johnson took over the Number 1 light heavyweight contender spot from Gustafsson in just 44 seconds of the first round, and secured himself a title shot with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
Following Gustafsson’s loss, Jones used Twitter to defame the Swedish mixed martial artist and said, “Not impressed Alex”, a famous line made famous by Georges St. Pierre at UFC 63 in 2006. However, Johnson fire back at Jones and defended Gustafsson.
This world is screwed up. In my opinion, when somebody is down, people always wants to step on you and keep you down. No one really wants to help you up. That’s why I think this world is screwed up.
I don’t know, man. Jon is who he is. He’s got bigger things to worry about than Alex.
Johnson will now face Jones inside the Octagon later this year. UFC officials are expected to make an announcement in the very near future.
