Alexander Gustafsson ima jednu borbu pred sobom i to na UFC Fight Night 109 gde će se suočiti sa Gloverom pred domaćom publikom u Stockholmu. Pre dve ipo godine se Gustafsson borio pred 30 hiljada najvijača takođe u Stockholmu gde je bio poražen u od Anthony Johnsona tehničkim nokautom.
Gustafsson je često težio ka revanšu sa Johnsonom međutim izgleda da do toga revanša nikada neće doći, jer se Johnson penzionisao. Pročitajte izjavu Gustfassona za”Champions.co”:
“I obviously wanted revenge against Anthony and I think it’s sad that he decided to retire. I respect his decision. If he thinks that’s the right thing to do then I say all the best to him. I respect his decision a lot.
He’s a great fighter and I think he has something that no one else has in our division. He’s got that power and I believe he was a real threat to all of us. That’s why I think it’s sad that he’s retiring. But, you know, I’ll respect his decision. If he thinks it is for the best then he must do it.”
