Alexander Gustafsson slams ‘chicken’ Jon Jones — ‘I signed my agreement, where are you?’

New, 66 comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is trying to get Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson to headline the upcoming UFC 232 pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for Sat., Dec. 29, 2018 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And it sounds like “The Mauler,” who dropped a razor-thin decision to Jones in the UFC 165 main event back in late 2013, has already signed his side of the bout agreement and now wants to know why “Bones” is dragging his feet.

“You are pissing me off!” Gustafsson wrote on Twitter. “I signed my agreement. Where are you?? Are you chickening out again?? Stop being a coward!”

Jones is expected to return from his 15-month drug test suspension at the end of the month and not surprisingly, has already set his sights on reigning heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.

Whether or not that bout comes to fruition remains to be seen, though it would certainly keep “DC” from getting stripped of his strap.
