‘The Mauler’ exploded onto the UFC scene by violently knocking
out Jared Hamman in his UFC debut, which opened up everyone’s eyes
to the fact that we had a potential contender on our hands
Hamman, having only been finished once in his career leading up
to the Gustafssson fight, was regarded as a very tough opponent who
would not be an easy fight for the Swede. Instead of being a close,
tightly contested bout as many expected, Gustafsson absolutely tore
through Hamman in less than one minute.
Alexander Gustafsson gets his first shot at UFC gold this
Saturday as he faces champion Jon Jones on PPV.
