UFC light heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson recently announced his decision to part ways with Alliance MMA, stating he planned to train solely in his home base of Sweden to avoid the time and expenses of heading to San Diego 3-4 times a year. Also likely playing a role, fellow top contender Phil Davis comes out of Alliance and there’s a good chance the two will tussle at some point down the road. All in all, Gustafsson’s reasoning made sense and the switch should work out for the best. Now, if only a few of his UFC peers would follow suit and reap the benefits a change of scenery would no doubt bring. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
