This is not something that Gustafsson seems interested in. here are comments from him and then Johnson's response…
Gustafsson's Comments: "We are not in the playground anymore," he said. "It's not about who is the toughest. … I want to keep (fighting for) a long time to come. You have to think tactically, and so you can't just go in and (fight) the first opponent."
Johnson's Response: "What did I just read? Gus must've bumped his head," Johnson said. "I respect his opinion but one thing is this. I left the playground a long time ago, I'm on the BATTLEFIELD now!"
