Jones-Teixeira winner next for Gustafsson

Alexander Gustafsson scored a thrilling second-round TKO over Jimi Manuwa to cement his case towards a second title shot. It remains to be seen if that shot will come against current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, or if it will come against Glover Teixeira, who challenges Jones for the belt at UFC 172 in Baltimore. Gustafsson declared a preference to avenge his UFC 165 loss to Jones, but UFC President Dana White declared that Gustafsson’s shot will stand, even if Teixeira prevails against Jones. The timetable for Gustafsson’s shot depends on how the UFC 172 headliner plays out.
