Plus get Jones' thoughts on last night's fight...
Dana White says that Jon Jones will face his toughest opponent thus far in a rematch for his next fight. The UFC president revealed (via MMAjunkie) following Jones' win over Glover Teixeira last night that the light heavyweight champion will take on Alexander Gustafsson once more.
Jones' last fight before Teixeira was against Gustafsson and while it was a unanimous decision win for Jones, some people considered the challenger to have won.
Jones spoke at the press conference about the Teixeira fight as well; check out the highlights:
About his win: "I just want to live in the moment and be grateful for what's happened right now. I envisioned having a dominant performance, but with that last fight the way it was, I wasn't sure what kind of performance I was going to have. I was hoping that it was back and I would perform at a high level."
On the light heavyweight division: "I'm not going to talk about what's going on next right now. I respect Anthony Johnson a ton. I think he's going to be great for the light heavyweight division."
