Gustafsson finishes Teixeira with insane combo in bloody UFC brawl

Gustafsson finishes Teixeira with insane combo in bloody UFC brawl

Anthony Johnson squared off with Alexander Gustaffson in the main event of UFC on FOX 14 back in January of 2015 in Stockholm, Sweden. "I give him that he's the best fighter of all-time, the best pound-for-pound fighter of all divisions - of course, everybody knows that". Gustafsson has done battle with both men, coming up just short against Jones at UFC 165 and Cormier at UFC 192. It's more likely he'll have to fight Jimi Manuwa or Volkan Oezdemir next, but he has a good claim even if the UFC wants to put him right into the next title fight. Gustafsson continued the assault on the ground, landing big crushing elbows to the head but somehow Teixeira maintained his composure to survive the round. But as a person, he's not a champion in my eyes.

Gustafsson also said "I'm here" when asked if he'd be available to step in should either Daniel Cormier or Jon Jones be unavailable for their UFC 214 bout in July.

Trump, Abbas affirm support to reach a peace deal with Israel
He again touched on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying he was "personally committed" to helping the two sides reach a deal. He has tasked his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner with leading the effort for the White House .


"That's why I always tell the guys, 'I hope that DC [Daniel Cormier] wins (at UFC 214) because I like the guy, he's a worthy champion".

Wow. Now, there's certainly other people, like "DC", who aren't fans of the former light-heavyweight champ. After saying he was done getting punched in the face, and seemingly finding a new career path, the knockout artist who is formerly known as "Rumble" may be "getting that itch" to fight again.
