This fight is awesome. Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson, former light heavyweight contender, is returning to the UFC to fight at heavyweight. Alexander will face Fabricio “Vai Cavalo” Werdum July 25th on a UFC Fight Night card. This will be a very interesting bout as win may further tempt Jon Jones into a move to heavyweight. Perhaps, a heavyweight fight between Jon Jones and Gustafsson could be on the horizon.
Guftasson returns after announcing retirement which followed a submission loss to Anthony “Lionheart” Smith. Guftasson had fought twice for the title against current light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. He hold wins over Glover Teixeira Mauricio Rua and Jan Blackhowicz.
Fabricio Werdum is a former heavyweight champion who holds over Cain Velasquez, Mark Hunt and Fedor Emelianeko. Werdum is coming off of a two fight skid and looks to spoil The Mauler’s return.
