UFC 165 headliner and light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson took some time out of his schedule to join UFC Tonight via Skype for a lengthy discussion about his upcoming fight against Jon Jones.

'The Mauler', who is pegged as a significant underdog against the reigning champion, immediately appears unbelieveably relaxed and confident.

This is a good thing, as many of Jones' opponents seem to beat themselves before they even step inside the Octagon.

It's clear that Gustafsson is treating Jones as if this were any other fight.

Gustafsson described his strategy to UFC Tonight, saying “I don’t know what to expect. I know he’ll go for a takedown, but I don’t know when he’ll do it. I will be in the cage with no thoughts and ready for anything.”

We'll find out if Gustafsson's strategy pays off at UFC 165 this Saturday on PPV.
