Check out the video highlights of Alexander Gustafsson taking another step up the light heavyweight ladder with his unanimous decision victory over Mauricio Rua at UFC on Fox 5: "Henderson vs. Diaz" last night (Sat., Dec. 8, 2012) in Seattle, Washington.
Alexander Gustafsson takes another step up the light heavyweight ladder with a three-round unanimous decision victory over former division champion Mauricio Rua in the co-main event of UFC on Fox 5: "Henderson vs. Diaz" last night (Sat., Dec. 8, 2012) at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington. Prior to the bout, UFC President Dana White claimed the winner would receive a title shot and current 205-pound champion Jon Jones himself said he would prefer to throw down with "The Mauler." Planning that would require a long layoff for Gustafsson so don't expect it but it's clear he deserves to have his name in the discussion, which is all he could really ask for with his performance tonight, right?
