Icon12 Jon Jones: "I owe Gustafsson a severe beating."

Jon Jones says he owes Alexander Gustafsson 'a severe beating'

In the wake of Alexander Gustafsson's knee injury, questions have arisen as to whether the Swedish light heavyweight should remain next in line for a shot at the UFC light heavyweight title, currently held by Jon Jones.

For one thing, the fact Jones' bout with Daniel Cormier isn't for nearly two months could make for an exceptionally long wait for Gustafsson, who has not fought since March. For another, Anthony Johnson is rumbling his way up the rankings.

But as far as the champion is concerned, Gustafsson is the only fight which makes sense next, should Jones defeat Cormier on Sept. 27.

And he doesn't just want to meet him, mind you. Jones feels like he has to make a point the second time around.

"I feel that I have something to prove to the MMA community when it comes to Gustafsson," Jones said. on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "I wasn't able to perform to my greatest ability [in their first fight], so I do owe Gustafsson a severe beating."

Well it's nice that Jones wants to return the favor for the sever beating Gus gave him.

Although this is funny, we all know it was a close fight that Jones eeked out a decision in.

Hopefully Cormier beats Jones down and we don't have to worry about Gus/Jones

It was a close fight to score indeed, but the fact that Jones had to be carried out of the cage, and then had to be transported on a stretcher means he received a beating.

But yeah, I hope DC puts an end to his reign.

This attitude is way better than when he was trying to avoid him. Lovely.

Got to love all the Jones hate, yet DC is just as much of a douche bag as Jones. I don't feel like DC would keep the belt for long if he wins, Gus would beat him and so would the other top5 LHWs, 8 out of 10 times. I have jones inside of 3 rounds.
