Think about it... This is a smart move for Jon. Yes, Gustafsson deserves the rematch & maybe Jon doesn't want it. But asking for the Cormier fight makes it look less like he's ducking Gus & more like he wants to fight DC. I think Jon knows that sooner or later he's going to have to fight Daniel, & it's going to be a tough fight for him. Better to catch him now, with his little experience against guys that can match up with him. The more fights Cormier has under his belt at LHW the more dangerous he becomes. Why not go ahead & try him now? For Gustafsson, it is the opposite. Gus has already shown he matches up roughly with Jones. So what is the smartest way for Jon to do to avoid fighting him? Call out the next highest guy. The results of that are a) Gus waits out Jones/Cormier & has to fight after a long layoff. Or b) Gus fights another top 5 LHW. Maybe Gus matches up well with Bones, but is he a legit 2nd best 205er? Anyways IMO, though this may have duck written all over it, it may be his wisest move..
