Once he’s done with Shogun…
- Alexander Gustafsson recently spoke about a future title shot and more. Here are the highlights…
On a Future Title Shot: "Right now, it's just 'Shogun' for me, nothing else. That's my only focus. I don't [overlook] any opponent. He's absolutely the most dangerous opponent so far. But when it comes to a title fight or if I will fight Jon Jones if he's still a champ, I'll be ready for it. I'll take home the belt. No question about it."
On Chael Sonnen's Title Shot: "It sucks a little bit that it went that way, but still, I'm happy for Chael," he said. "He's a good guy. I just hope he does everything he can (in that fight)."
On Jon Jones: "Jon Jones is mastering his reach and his distance, and they let him work," he said. "So I think you have to stick to your own game plan. It doesn't matter if you take a shot, two shots, or get taken down. That happens in a fight. You still have to stick to your game plan and be conditioned for 10 rounds."
