Alexander Gustafsson Picks Jon Jones Over Dan Henderson

UFC light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson wants his shot at the belt just as much as anybody else.

Gustafsson, who is currently on the sidelines rehabbing minor injuries, offered up his selection for the upcoming Jon Jones-Dan Henderson main event for the belt at UFC 151 in September.

Jones will win on decision. The only thing Dan has on Jones is his right hand. If (Jones) can stay away from that, he is going to win the fight (by) decision.

Gustafsson recently defeated Thiago Silva, earning his fifth consecutive victory since a submission loss to Phil Davis. Two of those wins came by submission, and another two via TKO.
