Gustafsson On Jones

“If I look at Jon Jones’ perspective I don’t think that’s strange, because he tries to avoid me. Everyone can see that; I can see that. He does what it takes to not fight me. For myself, it doesn’t make any sense. I think DC is a great fighter. I respect him, and I think he’s a top contender. But I think he has to have another fight or two before he will fight for the title. The only thing that makes sense, in my mind, it’s me versus Jones next.”
