Jon Jones is set to defended his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson later this month at UFC 165 in Toronto, Canada at the Air Canada Centre on September 21, 2013. This will be Jones' sixth title defense, a record for the UFC's light heavyweight division.
As they usually do, the UFC has released an extended preview hyping the card. A lot of the focus on the Jones-Gustafsson fight has been around the fact that Gustafsson is actually taller than Jones, so there won't actually be a size advantage.
That's not exactly true, Jones will still hold a significant reach advantage. But it's still one of the toughest tests for the champ as Gustafsson has some great footwork and knockout power in his hands. If Jones chooses to get into a striking exchange, he may find himself waking up seeing the arena lights.
