UFC on FOX 14: Anthony Johnson Quickly Takes Out Alexander Gustafsson
By FCF Staff
Anthony Johnson will be the next man to challenge UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, as the surging fighter quickly took out Alexander Gustafsson tonight in Stockholm, Sweden.
Johnson sent Gustafsson to the mat with an overhand right not too long into the bout, and as the Swedish star tried to recover, “Rumble” pounded away with shots from above. After several more moments the fight was brought to a halt at the 2:15 mark.
In the co-main event, middleweight Gegard Mousasi clipped Dan Henderson with a right hook early on, and then brought about the referee’s intervention with a couple more punches. Henderson, however, vehemently protested the stoppage, and argued that he was fully aware of what was going on when the fight was called.
Here are the official results for UFC on FOX 14, which was hosted by Stockholm’s Tele2 Arena.
