Gustafsson seems virtually unbeatable these days and hopes to keep the trend going at UFC 165 by taking out champion Jon Jones. Be that as it may, knowledgeable fans undoubtedly remember the lone loss of Gustafsson’s career. Back in 2010, Phil Davis choked “The Mauler” out in the first frame of their fight. The performance was so impactful on Gustafsson’s career he decided to start training with Davis in hopes of improving his grappling ability.
There’s no question the UFC boasts the bulk of the best fighters in the world and making it to the organization is an accomplishment worthy of praise. However, that’s not to say the path is always a smooth one for the elite athletes calling the Octagon home. In fact, nearly every Mixed Martial Artist in the sport has a moment he/she would love to erase from history. For example, consider some of the competitors set to scrap on September 21 at UFC 165.
