But on a US time table...
Dana White spoke last night following UFC 172 about the planned rematch between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson. Check out the highlights:
On the bout possibly taking place in Sweden: "At that time back there, it's light 24 hours a day, or it's dark for an hour or something like that. So we'd go at 4 o'clock in the morning."
On whether Jones would agree to fighting in Gustafsson's home country: "Yeah, Jon's going to agree to whatever fight we make. What's Jon going to agree to? Where's he going to want to fight? Seattle?...Sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do. We don't ever have people say, ‘This is where I'm going to fight my fight.' It's never happened. It won't happen. We've got to take the fight wherever the fight is going to do the best."
On the potential live gate in Sweden: "This thing could do 50, 60,000 seats or more. If we go to Europe to do it, we will (do the rematch at the Swedish stadium)."
