The UFC’s next pay-per-view will go down on October 3rd, and it will feature a pretty, pretty, compelling light-heavyweight fight.
In the headliner, Daniel Cormier will look to defend the belt for the first time, when he takes on Alexander Gustafsson. Yes, the latter is coming off a loss to Anthony Johnson, who Cormier tapped out in May to become champ. But, as Gustafsson fans would note, “The Mauler” provided Jon Jones is stiffest test to date, back in 2013.
It’s a fascinating bout, not only because of each man’s abilities, but if Jones returns to the cage next year, either rematch would be huge.
In advance of the fight, which will take place in Houston, Texas, the UFC has posted an extended preview. You can check it out below.
