Alexander Gustafsson is asking to either be the next fill in for an injury fight or take on ex-champ Lyoto Machida.

The fighter had to sit out against a bout with Gegard Mousasi because of a cut the fighter got during training above his left eye. A cut that Dana White said wasn’t bad enough to have him replaced, “Worst decision I have EVER seen to pull a fight.” A fight that turned out to be less than awesome with replacement Ilir Latifi.

Gustafsson was set to win that fight against Mousasi and take the title.

Considering Machida is the No. 1 contender right now, Gustafsson will end up taking him on if the winner of the upcoming fight between Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen ends up being hurt or has to take some kind of break.

Gustafsson will be on vacation for another week due to some news he received in his home country.

    Gustafsson will be champ one day, I guarantee it. When depends on how the Jones Sonnen fight goes

  • It’s a real shame that he wasn’t able to take the Mousasi fight. That match with Latifi was pretty disappointing.

    • Evan Stoumbelis

      Agreed, He and Mousasi would have put on a great fight, Latifi just wasn’t ready for that but they needed him.
