2014-06-03: Jon Jones vill inte möte Alexander ”The Mauler” Gustafsson, ber om Cormier istället.
Dana White: ”Just to clear up a couple things, people think we’re in contract negotiations with Jon Jones – we’re not. Jon Jones still has five fights left on his contract. So what we’re doing right now is trying to get him to sign the bout agreement for Gustafsson. He doesn’t want to fight Gustafsson. … Lorenzo and I have a meeting with Jones on Thursday to get him to sign the bout agreement, and he’s asking to fight Cormier instead.”
2014-04-29 Daniel Cormier om Alexander Gustafssons chanser mot Jon Jones. Och om sin chans på en titelmatch. Från MMA Hour, Cormier:”I’ve waited long enough. This will be my fifth top-10 win, and I’m not fighting anyone else. I’m going to sit and wait and get better, and I’m going to wait to fight Jon Jones. If it took nine months, I’d wait nine months. It’s time for me to fight for the belt.
It’s not that I’m afraid I’ll lose to any of these guys, because I don’t believe that. I think I can beat them all. I just think that at a point, you have to make a stand about what’s important for me. Eventually one of these guys is going to take me to the edge and make me have to fight. Dan Henderson could potentially be that guy.
No chance. Let me rephrase that. I’m not saying he doesn’t have a chance. I’m just saying that if I had to bet my money, or if I asked 10 people who wins this fight, nine out of those 10 people would say Jon Jones, because honestly, I believe that he’s better because he has more tools.
When you look at Jon on paper against a lot of people, he seems to match up well against every single one of us. He seems to holds the advantages against every single one of us. It’s the intangibles. It’s the things that you can’t measure on a piece of paper that it’s going to take to beat Jon Jones — the things that I believe I hold in spades.”
2014-04-28: Alexander Gustafsson om Jon Jones vinst mot Glover Texieira:
”Matchen gick precis som jag förutspått. Även om Jones vann övertygande är jag inte alls imponerad. Vi fick inte se något spektakulärt. Jones gjorde precis det som krävdes för att vinna matchen.”
2014-04-27: Dana White: Gustafsson gets the next fight against Jones. We got to see how that plays out. I don´t know physically how Jones is right now. He just went five hard rounds with a guy who hits hard. He (Jones) looked good, but we will see how he feels.
2014-03-26: Från MMA Junkie: Gustafsson tycker Jones gör allt för att undvika en ny fight.
In my mind, Jones is doing everything he can to not fight me. He doesn’t want to fight me. So I think he’s trying to mix things up. But the only fight that makes sense for me right now is if he wins against Teixeira, is me fighting him.
I’d probably fight someone else, then. I’m a fighter and I want to fight. Basically, if Jones beats Teixeira, I want that title shot right away. If he doesn’t win (and they give him a rematch), then I’ll have to look at other possibilities. But I’m fighting whoever they gave me. That’s just the way I am
Från USA Today.
”It was tough in the beginning to stop thinking about the fight with Jon, but when I knew I was fighting Jimi, I realized I needed to take him very serious. I stopped thinking about the title and started thinking about my immediate future and my next challenge.He’s very dangerous, and I think people are underestimating him a little bit. I don’t. I know exactly how dangerous this guy is. He’s just sneaking around under the radar and waiting to strike. He’s a very good, dangerous fighter. I am ready. I’ve done my homework, and I have to be 100 percent in the fight. He’s going to throw some bombs. We all know that. He’s a very heavy hitter with his punches, his kicks and his knees. He’s very good with his striking. But wherever the fights ends up, I’m going to have an answer.
This will be an early finish, with me as a winner on Saturday night. I want the belt, and that’s my only focus. But to take the belt from Jones would be the absolute best scenario.”

2013-12-20: UFC Tonight, Unanimous Decision: Årets match: Jon Jones vs Alexander Gustafsson
Första bilden på Alexander Gustafsson i EA Sports UFC 2014, likt?
Jon ”Bone” Jones verkar lite bekymmrad över att Alexander Gustafsson står runt hörnet och väntar på rematch.
Från en intervju nyligen.
”“I think the UFC really wants to see me and Alexander Gustafsson rematch really bad, and they really gave him a really easy path back to the belt,” Jones said. “Without being disrespectful to Jimi, Jimi’s not a top 10 fighter, so I don’t see how you’re going to fight a guy not in the top 10 to get another world championship fight. It just doesn’t make sense.””
