UFC Fight Night 37 Preview

The last time Alexander Gustafsson stepped into the octagon he was fighting for the Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 165 in Toronto. The fight was the built as the biggest in Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ career as he would take on the best fighter he has ever fought. Gustafsson was seen as the answer to the domination of Jones as he was the only fighter that was able to match what Jon Jones did best.

In both fights a young up and coming star would take on the old guard in an attempt to show everyone that the new breed was ready to take over.
