Video: A history of the beef between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson leading up to their UFC 232 fight

There’s been a whole lot of Jon Jones headlines over the past couple of days but precious few of them are about his fight against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 on December 29th. It’s all drug test this and Turinabol that and metabolite this and picogram that. People must be forgetting all the entertaining trash talk Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson have thrown at each other over the past several years.

As usual, things were pretty calm and collected between the two for the most part leading up to their first fight in 2013. They even got together for that infamous post-fight hospital shot. Unfortunately, since then things have soured. Gustafsson insists he didn’t lose the fight. Jones claims he won easy, and in the depths of a crazy party bender to boot.

So if you want a break from the current hot Jon Jones drama, come join us as we look through the other Jon Jones drama: his beef with Alexander Gustafsson, which has the bonus of us getting resolution on December 29th. Well ... hopefully. With Jon Jones you really never know what will or won’t happen.
