It's not a lock...
The rematch between Jon Jones vs Alexander Gustafsson has finally been made for September 27, now it's just a matter of figuring out where it will take place. MMA Fighting reports that it may not be the Air Canada Center in Toronto, which is no longer considered a lock for the event. The venue is where the first fight between the two happened last year. When UFC.com wrote a story about the fight announcement, the venue was not mentioned once.
The UFC is considering its options and will make a decision soon. Sweden isn't being considered (there is an October 4 show in the country already). When Jones met with UFC yesterday, a final decision on the location hadn't been made. It could still end up in Toronto, it's just not a lock yet.
Jon Jones has experience with the city, as he's fought three times there.
