    This swedish fighter has an impressive win-streak in 205 lbs, he have won his fights by tko or rear naked choke, but is he an interesting fighter to watch according to you?

    It is good that he speak english , but 99% of his interview is just cliche. In UFC the the only way is to thrashtalk like Chael Sonnen to get something or deliver very exciting fights.

    I would say that the Korean Zombie is the most interesting non-american/brazilian fighter at the moment since he knows how to make a fight to remember.

    Will this explain why he will not get the title?

    Gustafsson's the best prospect UFC's got. He's going to get a title shot, just be patient.

    No. If he doesn't get the title it will be because of skill level. I don't see how having a European champ does anything but help Dana take over the world.

    A fighter that uses very clean striking technique with power behind his punches is always entertaining. As we saw with his fight with Shogun he's not afraid to go blow for blow against an opponent who has landed BOMBS on his chin. Most guys would get rocked and abandon their gameplan after taking one of those. AG just kept on going like nothing happened.

    He's not one of my favorite guys but sure, he's entertaining. Also, surely you mean he will not get a shot(which he will by the way).

    people forget that he started out as a brawler who had a great chin and now he trains with Dominick Cruz.

    I like him, but I'll admit that his past couple of fights have been a bit on the dull side.
