Ian McCall: Jon Jones Is A Freak

Ian McCall knows Alexander Gustafsson is training like a mad man with Alliance, as he??s set to take on UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. While ??Uncle Creepy? gives Gustafsson all the credit in the world, he considers Jones to be one of the more superior fighters out there.

??You know [Jones??] going to have a lot of wrestling practice,? said McCall on the Rick J Lee channel. ??A lot of boxing and MMA. Good footwork, so he’ll take it to Jon. But Jon can outwrestle all the best wrestlers, no matter who they have over there. Jon’s just a freak.?

Jones will look to break the division??s record as he goes for title defense number six. He??s finished all but one those title fights since claiming the gold in 2011.

Gustafsson comes from Sweden and is 15-1. He won his last six for the UFC, which includes decisions over Thiago Silva and Mauricio Rua in 2012.

The title headlines UFC 165 on September 21 and comes from the Air Canada Centre.

McCall grabbed his first UFC win with a decision to Iliarde Santos earlier in the month at UFC 163.
