UFC on FOX 14: Does Video Prove Alexander Gustafsson Received Headbutt?

By FCF Staff

Anthony Johnson scored an impressive, first round stoppage win over Alexander Gustafsson at UFC on FOX 14, but a new video has some questioning whether the latter took a headbutt during the bout.

The video below seems to show the light-heavyweights clashing heads, just as Johnson throws a overhand right, which also appeared to land.

It should be noted that following the bout, Gustafsson said he did not recall feeling a headbutt. A replay of the exchange from above, appears to show Johnson’s head possibly hitting Gustafsson’s shoulder first, and then clashing into the latter’s head.

Johnson proceeded to swarm Gustafsson after the exchange, and after the bout spilled to the mat, he finished the fight with shots from above.

UFC on FOX 14 was hosted by the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. As a result of Johnson’s win, he has secured a bout with light-heavyweight champ, Jon Jones.
