Alexander Gustafsson believes Jon Jones is doing whatever he can to not fight him

Alexander Gustafsson spells his last name with three consonants in a row and it’s not even grammatically incorrect. That’s the power of the Nords — they have the power to assemble letters however they see fit and no one will tell them if they’re making a mistake. For all we know, Alexander Gustafsson is an ancient Nordic vampire, initially bit by some Swedish war lord hundreds of years ago. That would explain Alexander striking a strong resemblance to that Eric guy from True Blood. If this is true, we’ve yet to see Gustafsson unleash his vampire abilities inside the Octagon. Perhaps in the future, we’ll see him use his ‘glamor’ skills to charm the judges the next time he goes to a decision. No one has ever witnessed Alexander Gustafsson walk around in the daylight, but we do have a photo of him — which sort of collapses our entire vampire theory. Dammit, thought we were using science to investigate stuff.

Well, I guess you’re just going to have to settle for this video of Gustafsson saying that Jon Jones is doing whatever he can to not fight him.
