Jon Jones Vows To Alexander Gustafsson – ‘You Will Never Beat Me’

Jon Jones Vows To Alexander Gustafsson – ‘You Will Never Beat Me’

Former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones may be temporarily suspended after testing positive for banned substances, but Bones is unbelievably confident that he will be back in the Octagon soon. Jones recently caught wind of rival Alexander Gustafsson’s latest talk said beating Jon Jones is “bigger than taking the belt,”

On Thursday, Jon Jones dropped a savage response, claimed that the Swede’s greatest moment in the Octagon is the fact that he was able to take Jones to distance, yet still lost the fight, and made an intriguing statement that you will never be able to beat him.

@AlexTheMauler Beat me in three? Your hands were the only thing you had over me in our first fight. That gap is closing fast. Our first fight will be the greatest thing you’ve ever done inside of that octagon. You will never beat me, and that’s my promise to you.

Not many can argue with Jon Jones here, as two-time UFC light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson’s most memorable performance in the Octagon was going five highly competitive rounds with Jones at UFC 165, where ‘The Mauler’ dropped a razor-close decision in a Fight of the Year back in late 2013.

The middle rounds were all close and could have been scored for either fighter, as Gustafsson continued to outbox Jones. But Bones switched his striking and landed with his kicks and standing elbows.

In last-second of the fourth round, Jones turned up the heat landed a fight-altering spinning elbow, Gustafsson survived the round, but Jones continued the onslaught in the fifth and final round, continue to land arsenal of strikes to win a unanimous decision.

However, Jone believes, Gustafsson did outbox him in that bout, and he is ready to rectify, by posting a late night sparring session in his garage via social media:

Jones is facing up to a four-year suspension for a drug test failure in relation to UFC 214, recently fined $205,000 and had his MMA license revoked by the California State Athletic Commission. If he gets through with legal troubles smoothly, and if he returns to Octagon a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson would be on top list of MMA fans.
