Gustafsson KO’s Hamman in debut

Alexander Gustafsson

PPV, but he didn’t get here over night.

‘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

here.

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.
