Jon Jones-Alexander Gustafsson Targeted For UFC 165 In September

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will be returning to Canada for a third time later this year, as “Bones” is expected to face Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson.

UFC officials confirmed news of the bout for the September 21 pay-per-view from Toronto earlier this week.

The two have engaged in several Twitter exchanges since first reports started floating around that it would be Gustafsson taking on Jones instead of Lyoto Machida.

Jones (18-1) has previously defeated both Lyoto Machida and Vitor Belfort in Canada, while Gustafsson (15-1) is coming off a win over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua himself.
