Jon Jones has yet to incur a legitimate loss in his MMA career, but Alexander Gustafsson says that’s going to change, when the two battle at UFC 232.

The stars will fight for the soon to be vacated, light-heavyweight title on December 29th. Recently Gustafsson spoke with MMA NYTT, and when asked to make a prediction for the upcoming bout, the Swedish fighter said this:

“I’ll knock him out in the fourth,” Gustafsson said.

“Jon Jones’ head will bounce off the canvas in the fourth round.”

“I don’t have the same respect for Jones as I did five years ago.”

When Jones was the UFC’s 205 champion he faced Gustafsson in 2013, and won the tightly contested bout via unanimous decision. “Bones” only defeat to date was via disqualification versus Matt Hamill in 2009.
