Alexander Gustafsson Responds to Daniel Cormier’s Recent Comments
By FCF Staff
After Daniel Cormier raised eyebrows recently by asking why people talk so often about Alexander Gustafsson’s loss to Jon Jones, “The Mauler” has responded to the light-heavyweight champ.
At the UFC’s “Go Big” press conference last week, Cormier called on fans and the media to talk about something else than Gustafsson’s competitive loss to Jones in 2013. The decorated fighter also seemed to take a shot at Gustafsson’s win over Jimi Manuwa, by referring to it as “earth shattering”. The decorated wrestler also argued that he’s on another level than Gustafssson.
Well, Gustafsson recently posted the following comments on Facebook, regarding Cormier’s comments.
You know, I think he is right, DC is a very loving and humble person and he says what he truly believes.
This will be a test for me, to meet the Champion in LHW division, the rightful Champion without question and one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world??!??!
I know have to work hard and be in excellent shape as DC is all year around. Right now I believe my weight is good 1 month before the fight, I used a nutritionist, so my weight cut could be as easy as DCs, I will not give him any advantage there.
With all of this said and no matter what DC thinks or believes, I will take that belt on October 3rd and once I have that belt, I hope you all stop talking how close I was getting it from Jon Jones and instead talk about my Earth-shattering win over Daniel Cormier for as long as you guys want
Gustafsson and Cormier will fight on October 3rd at UFC 192. The Swedish star is coming off a stoppage loss to Anthony Johnson, who Cormier submitted in May to become champion.
