UFC 165: Alexander Gustafsson Prepared For Five-Round War

Alexander Gustafsson has no issues going five rounds if need be this Saturday vs. Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 165.

In fact, “The Mauler” is actually looking forward to a 25-minute war with “Bones.”

“It’s not an issue,” said Gustafsson, on “UFC Tonight” recently. “I’m ready to go all five rounds. A perfect fight for me is a finish, but I’ll go all five if I have to.”

Gustafsson hasn’t competed since a December decision over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. In 16 professional bouts, he has gone the three-round distance just three times, including each of his last two fights.
