Alexander Gustafsson on possibility of Jimi Manuwa getting title shot before him: ‘If Jimi gets it, I’m happy for him’

With the UFC light heavyweight title to be contested on July 29 at UFC 214 between current champion Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones, the question becomes who will be waiting in the wings for the winner. On that same night Jimi Manuwa will take on Volkan Oezdemir, in what could be a conditional No. 1 contender bout — meaning, if Manuwa wins, he could be next.

Then there’s Alexander Gustafsson.

Gustafsson is coming off an impressive fifth-round knockout over Glover Teixeira at UFC Fight Night 109, which took place on May 28. Now with two wins in a row, Gustafsson is knocking at the door for a title shot, as well. And he has history with both Jones and Cormier.

His fight with Jones at UFC 165 is considered one of the best in UFC history, while his bout with Cormier at UFC 192 — a split decision loss — was among one of the most memorable. Yet even with those lures in his back pocket, Gustafsson — who trains with Manuwa at the Allstars Training Center in Stockholm — wouldn’t mind if the “Poster Boy” gets the next crack at a title. In fact, he said if that’s the case he’d likely congratulate Manuwa and give him a hug.

“Well, I haven’t spoken to Dana [White] yet, so let’s see what happens,” he said during an appearance on The MMA Hour. “If Jimi gets it, I’m happy for him. So let’s see what happens.”

Gustafsson said he will likely be in Anaheim for the fights in support of Manuwa, and to take in Jones-Cormier II. Should Manuwa win and be pegged as the next in line to challenge for the belt, Gustafsson made it clear he will not look to challenge Manuwa.

“I’d probably have to fight another guy, we’re not fighting each other,” he said. “We’re brothers now, and we’re training hard together. So that’s how we look at things. I’m just happy if he gets the fight, and we’ll take it from there.”

Then again, the 30-year old Swede said that he believed his win over Teixeira clearly places him near the peak of the division, and that he will be “looking to the top” for his next fight. He hopes his discussion with White will help clear things up.

Gustafsson’s rooting interest in the Jones-Cormier shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, given that he has been very vocal about his distaste for Jones since his last bout. Gustafsson said that he didn’t believe Jones is a good person, and pointed out his casual references to using cocaine during the UFC’s Summer Kickoff press conference in Dallas.

“I’m excited to see the fight first of all, and I have to be honest, I like DC,” he said. “For me he’s a worthy champion, he’s a good guy. I hope he wins, but I wouldn’t say no to a fight against Jon Jones either. That’s the fight people want to see, and I will fight him. So, let’s see what happens.”

Gustafsson said he is hopeful that he will get a rematch with Jones down the line, even if it’s not for a title. Given the close nature of the first fight in 2013, he believes everyone involved would be interested, too.

“It’s one of those fights you really want. I want that fight, and I know the fans want that fight. And I know he wants the fight, too. So, yeah, probably.”

Glory fighter wins by controversial KO, gets attacked by fans in the ring

Glory 42 had one of the most bizarre — and scary — sequences in recent combat sports memory.

Welterweight fighter Murthel Groenhart won the co-main event bout in Paris against Harut Grigorian by savage knockout when Grigorian inexplicably turned his back to Groenhart in the middle of the round. Seconds after the finish, fans jumped into the ring and attacked Groenhart.

The fans landed multiple punches on the Glory fighter, who said he might have had his jaw broken in the wild melee.

“Some guy caught me with a hook to my face,” Groenhart said on the broadcast. “I got my guard up. With those hands without gloves, it came through to my chin and my teeth. I think it’s broken [jaw], I don’t know. It hurts.”

Glory announcers explained on the broadcast that per the sanctioning body Groenhart didn’t break any rules by hitting Grigorian while his back was turned, because the referee did not step in to stop the action. It was a legal blow and knockout.

“When you are in the heat of the game, you just continue,” Groenhart said. “He turned away. I came after him and got him with the right hook that’s all. I did nothing wrong. It was all in the fight, all in the game. Everyone says in the rules to protect yourself at all times. The referee did not come in. I came in with the right hook. He fell down, and then I saw the referee come in. I did nothing wrong.”

Grigorian’s trainer Nicky Hemmers said on the broadcast that his fighter turned his back due to a cut — “which you never do in a fight,” he said — and he didn’t hold it against Groenhart for hitting him.

“It was not illegal,” Hemmers said. “It was not nice to do, but it was not illegal.”

Groenhart, 30, is one of Glory’s top welterweight fighters and the 2016 Glory welterweight tournament champion. This was his third straight win for the kickboxing promotion and very likely the strangest one, considering how everything unfolded.

“I was in the corner and I saw these guys coming out,” Groenhart said of the attackers. “I was like come on guys this is a sport. Things happen. Some people get emotional, too close. But this is a sport and little children are watching this sport at home. You can not come into a ring like this.”

Fighter shakes head saying a strike didn’t hurt — then gets KO’d by head kick

The MMA gods will get you every time.

Jordan Powell, a light heavyweight fighter competing at LFA 13, shook his head during the bout to tell his opponent that the last strikes didn’t hurt him. Then, Dominick Reyes, his foe, landed a left head kick that ended the fight Friday night in Burbank, Calif. Powell was unconscious before he hit the ground and faceplanted.

Powell was doing his best to no-sell a previous exchange. And he was right — Reyes’ strikes didn’t hurt him or really hit him. But as soon as Powell let his guard down for a second, Reyes was there with the knockout blow :53 of the first round.

Reyes (6-0), a California native, is a real prospect at 205 pounds. He has finished all but one of his pro fights. Powell (8-7) came in on a three-fight winning streak that was abruptly stopped.

Midnight Mania! UFC Heavyweight champ, Stipe Miocic, gets humbled at firehouse – ‘Good job! Now go clean a toilet’

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight …

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight, we’ve got Stipe getting humbled and also choosing to embrace rompers, Conor with high white socks and too many belts, Joe Rogan avoiding temptation, Nick Diaz not, Yoel Romero shouting incomprehensibly, sumo, and much more


Fire Fighter

Stipe Miocic may have tied the record for UFC Heavyweight wins with his stunning knockout win over Junior Dos Santos, and even cracked the top five P4P list, but he doesn’t have any trouble staying grounded. Not only does he have a complete disregard for celebrity, but the folks in his life won’t let his success go to his head. He shared as much in an interview on the Jim Rome show:

“I have good people around me. My wife is amazing, my family, my friends, my teammates, my co-workers at the fire station, they keep me grounded, and I love where I’m at and the people that support me,” Miocic said.

In fact, he says his fellow fire fighters do not care about his fame as a cage fighting world champion.

“I usually walk in, they say congratulations, and they’ll hand me a scrubber and say get to the toilets or something like that. They really don’t care,” Miocic laughed.

Even though he’s the world heavyweight champion, Stipe says he would never think of quitting his day job. He’s blue collar to the core, and loves helping people.

“I love what I do. My whole life I’ve been helping people, and I’ve been helped so I can give back,” Miocic said. “And plus I worked so hard to get there, to become a firefighter, going to school and paramedic and all that good stuff, and make my mom proud, show my mom that she raised a son that works hard.”

That doesn’t mean, though, that Stipe can’t appreciate the latest and worst fashion trends.


Insomnia

There are too many belts in this picture. One of them must be the fake belt he bought to annoy Jose Aldo on their world tour.

This impressionist is incredible

The odds for MayGregor have shifted slightly in Conor’s favor… but the Grand Canyon is still smaller.

Don’t forget Rory Macdonald’s welterweight debut in Bellator is tomorrow night.

Absolutely no idea what Yoel Romero is saying here but maybe he should lay off the pre workouts

Joe Rogan being honest

Meisha thought this was funny

Alright, Nick. This is definitely NSFW.

I’ve heard enough about men’s rompers at this point.


Slips, Rips, and SUMO CLIPS!!!
