Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson Take to Social Media

  • Published in MMA News

Social media completely rules our modern lives in awkward and sometimes negative ways. A fighter like Jon Jones would have been a huge star and everyone's favorite in a pre-internet era, but in an age where he can take to Twitter or Instagram and say something stupid, he tends to do exactly that and it only hurts him and everyone around him. His latest little mistake was addressing fans on Instagram in regards to him "ducking" Gustafsson and wanting to fight Cormier instead. He quickly took the video down, but this is the internet and nothing truly goes away. 

As for Gustafsson, he wants his UFC Light Heavyweight Championship bout and he wants it now, which prompted him to hit Facebook with a call out of his own. 

Jon "Bones" Jones, be a man, be a champ and sign that bout agreement and stop running. Keep in mind that after I beat you and become the champ I might be doing the same to you when you chase me for a rematch, as a revenge for not accepting my challenge.

Sooner or later you will have to face me, just make it sooner!

The fans wants this fight, UFC wants this fight and I want this fight, and I damn deserve it.

  • Published in Kickboxing

If the average picture if worth a thousand words then I'm not really sure what this one is worth. Ruslan Suleymanov, the owner of LEGEND, recently turned 35 years old. What better way to celebrate turning 35 than by having a huge birthday party featuring some of the best fighters of the world just hanging out, right? Benson Henderson, Alexander Gustafsson, Andy Souwer, Giorgio Petrosyan, Melvin Manhoef and Gago Drago were among the names of fighters that were in attendance, but there were more, a lot more. 

Ben Pontier was there snapping up photos of the whole thing, which is when he captured this moment above. I don't even know.

Daniel Cormier Willing to Fight Gustafsson For Interim Title

  • Published in MMA News

The rematch between Alexander Gustafsson and Jon Jones for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship is supposed to be next up for Jon Jones, but right now Jon Jones is in the middle of contract negotiations with the UFC. Those contract negotiations have led to a bit of a rift between the UFC and Jon Jones at the moment, with Dana White acting frustrated with Jones. Now, let's be honest here, Jon Jones is one of the UFC's real big stars at this point and their Light Heavyweight Champion, the guy should be allowed to negotiate his contract without getting run down in the press.

Daniel Cormier has decided to toss his hat into the ring already, though. He is ready to go and would be willing to fight Alexander Gustafsson for the Interim Light Heavyweight Championship. Sounds crazy, right? Well, knowing the UFC, it might not be. If the UFC wanted to apply pressure to Jones all they'd have to do is imply that he could be replaced and have an Interim title fight.
