Anthony Johnson clearly has a lot of respect for his next opponent.
‘Rumble’ says that Alexander Gustafsson should be the light heavyweight champion after he beat Jon Jones at UFC 165 on September 21 2013 in Toronto but lost by decision.
“I thought [Gustfasson] won. Whenever they announced that Jones won, I was shocked,” Johnson said at a pre-fight press conference in Stockholm. “I actually thought Alexander won. But you can’t win them all. When you’re fighting the champion, you definitely have to put him away. And it was a really close fight but I still think that he did enough…. but that’s just how the dice rolled.”
