Since Daniel Cormier decided to go Heavyweight to face Stipe Miocic at UFC 226, Alexander Gustafsson suddenly has problems with finding opponents. Looks like The Mauler is seriously thinking about moving to Heavyweight. He doesn't want to fight his teammates Jimi Manuwa and Ilir Latifi. (quoted by BloodyElbow.com) \u201cI can move up to heavyweight, in the light heavyweight division we have\u00a0Jon Jones\u00a0coming back, who maybe is coming back or maybe not. We\u2019ll see how it all plays out,\u201d Gustafsson told Viaplay Fight Week \u201cBut me and\u00a0Ilir Latifi\u00a0will not compete against each other and the same goes for\u00a0Jimi Manuwa.\u201d \u201cHeavyweight is also an option. I\u2019m a heavyweight today. I\u2019m actually only a light heavyweight during one day and that\u2019s the weigh-in, after that, I\u2019m a good heavyweight.\u201d Manuwa started training with Alexander Gustafsson in October 2014, and he is currently number four in Light Heavyweight division. Ilir Latifi is ranked fifth after a huge victory over Ovince Saint Preux at UFC On Fox 28 in Orlando. However, Alexander Gustafsson still believes everything might be sorted out in a peaceful way. He definitively doesn't want to fight with his friends and teammates. \u201cWe\u2019re teammates, we are friends \u2014 close friends \u2014 first and foremost and we won\u2019t fight each other,\u201d Gustafsson said of Latifi and Manuwa. \u201cI want to start our discussion by making it clear that we will not fight each other, so now you all know.\u201d \u201cIt\u2019s a tricky situation, for sure. But I mean, we\u2019ll see what happens. is now going up to face , Ilir Latifi has heavyweight as a possibility,\u201d he continued. \u201cWe\u2019ll sort it out somehow. Of course, we both should be able to dream of the belt and we both should get our chances to fight for the title, but we\u2019ll see how it all turns out when we get there.\u201d Alexander Gustafsson fought in the May 2017 in front of his home fans in Sweden, where he knocked Glover Teixeira out via elbow in the fifth round.
