Despite this humble acceptance of the loss, Gustafsson’s manager is positive in planning his talent’s third showdown with the new light heavyweight king. In a written interview with MMA Junkie, Safapour revealed the future he is looking at for the 31-year-old.

“The plan is to come back stronger than ever. The fight was the fight. We still believe 100 per cent that Alex can beat Jones. Just depends on the day. Anyone can win depending on the circumstances of the fight.”

“It was not our day, but we will come back and get the title in due time either from Jon or whoever else is holding the title at that time. Expect to see ‘The Mauler’ back in action soon.” 

Smells Terrible

In terms of Jones’ past drug test failures, Safapour still casts doubt on the UFC titleholder’s integrity. Continuing, the mixed martial arts manager wrote:

“We hold the same position about Jones as it relates to the doping controversy. Whatever he is doing, it smells terrible.”
