The black belt in gaidojutsu and former Ufc light-Hw champion Jon Jones entered this fight with a professional mma record of 22-1-0 (68% finishing rate) but he is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since July 29, 2017 when he defeated current #1 Hw and light-Hw Ufc champ Daniel Cormier (but then the result was overturned in a no-contest because Jon ‘Bones’ Jones’ tested positive for turinabol, Daniel Cormier vs Jon Jones 2). Jones’ only loss was, in reality, a disqualification suffered against Matt Hamill in 2009 due to multiple “12-6 elbows” (strike brought from a high position toward the floor), since then he has collected 13 consecutive victories and one no-contest beating ‘DC’ Cormier in 2015 (Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier I) and Ovince Saint Preux in 2016 (Jon Jones vs Ovince St Preux).
His opponent, Alexander Gustafsson, has an official record of 18-4-0 (78% finishing rate) and he is also not ranked as he hasn’t fought for more than one year, May 2017, when he defeated Glover Teixeira (Alexander Gustafsson vs Glover Teixeira). Before this bout ‘The Mauler’ Gustafsson had also beat Jan Blachowicz (Gustafsson vs Blachowicz) but in 2015 he had lost two consecutive bouts: against Anthony Johnson (Gustafsson vs Johnson) and Daniel Cormier (via split decision, Cormier vs Gustafsson). In their first fight Jones had won over Gustafsson via unanimous decision (September 21, 2013 – Jon Jones vs Alexander Gustafsson I); this second fight, main event of Ufc 232, is valid for the Ufc light heavyweight title.
