Head 2 Head: Jones vs. Gustafsson

BY foxsports • September 20, 2013

Finally, Jon Jones can begin the process of putting to rest the argument that it’s his length that wins him fights. Six-foot-five opponent Alexander Gustafsson is an inch taller than the UFC light-heavyweight champ, and only a negligible three-inch reach disadvantage. In his last fight, Jones made a point of beating Chael Sonnen at his own game. Will he try to do the same with Gustafsson? The challenger sure hopes so. Such a risky game plan would certainly add some intrigue to a fight considered lopsided by both oddsmakers and bettors.
