Check out the light heavyweight champion and his Swedish opponent before their bout.
He is as close to a physical equal to the champion as there is in the light heavyweight division, but that alone won’t ensure Alexander Gustaffson will leave with the belt at UFC 165.
Undisputed 205 pound king and arguably the best fighter pound-for-pound in the world in Jon Jones, will defend his title against the Swede on September 21.
Together the pair represent ‘generation next’ in the UFC with Jones already a household name around the world and his opponent quickly becoming the same.
However, it is the physical battle, as much as the mental and skill-based one, that has most fans drooling in anticipation for the fight.
In all of his bouts to date, Jones he been able to physically dominant his opponents with his combination of speed, reach and skill.
But it is the near mirror image that will be standing across from him that has some tipping there might be a new king soon at the top of the division.
