Jon Jones Has Lost Respect For Alexander Gustafsson

ufc 172

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is going on the offensive in regards to his future challengers as of late.

Jones, who will meet Glover Teixeira in a number of weeks at UFC 172, isn’t taking too kindly to comments made by the next challenger to the belt, Alexander Gustafsson.

Gustafsson went the distance with Jones last year and earned the champions respect. However, that seems to be changing as more and more times gets between the first fight and a potential rematch.

“I respected him a lot more before we fought,” said Jones, during an interview with FOXSports.com. “He has so much arrogance for someone who didn’t win. I’ve never heard someone chirp so much who lost.

“We fought our hearts out. I proved that I have three times the heart that he did. He needs to close his mouth and go back to the drawing board and humbly come back for a second chance.”

Gustafsson earned that “second chance” by beating Jimi Manuwa. He has stated that he hopes Jones tops Teixeira so that he can “take the belt” from the champion.

    Jones should’ve remembered how busted his face was and that he didn’t get a single TD the whole fight that he barely won and can even make the case Gus won at least 3
