I Can’t Stand Alexander Gustafsson

I Can’t Stand Alexander Gustafsson

The elite of the UFC Light Heavyweight division (and Alexander Gustafsson) took to social media to trade jabs yesterday, resparking a couple rivalries near the top of the division’s rankings. 

 

Gustafsson announced his new contract on Instagram...

With the “while others are talking about retirement line” seeming to be a shot at current 205 lb champion Daniel Cormier, the champ fired back...

DC’s biggest rival and Light Heavyweight GOAT Jon Jones saw Cormier’s tweet...

To which Gustafsson replied...

Alright... so I really don’t like Alexander Gustafsson. Dude has done nothing but pout since he lost (and yes, he lost. There is no controversy) to Jones. He’s taking shots at almost 40 year old Daniel Cormier for talking about retirement even though Alex himself talked about retiring after he lost to (got KO’d by) Rumble Johnson (in his hometown).

 

It’s not often I even dislike a fighter, let alone take shots at one, but something about Gustafsson irks me to no end. He’s somehow built a career off of being a tall guy who lost to Jon Jones. In reality, he’s a middle of the road fighter whose made it to the brim of the top 5 in the UFC’s weakest division. I know nothing I say about Alexander Gustafsson means anything to him, nor should it... it shouldn’t even really mean anything to you. I just need SOMEONE else to notice that this guy is the worst. So when the MMA masses start calling for Alex to get a shot at the belt or a rematch with Jon Jones, just remember that he’s 3-3 in his last 6, and that his last 4 wins (dating back to 2012 [TWENTY DAMN TWELVE]) are against 2017 Glover, Jan Blachowicz, Jimi Manuwa and Shogun Rua (who is another guy we should stop pretending is good.)

 

Alexander Gustafsson stinks. Never forget it.
