UFC 232 Jones vs. Gustafsson fight details
Two of the top MMA stars on the UFC 3 roster will battle it out in California. However, ahead of their impending Light Heavyweight clash, there has been controversy involving Jon Jones. He hasn’t been in the Octagon since July 29, 2017, against rival Daniel Cormier. Initially, Jones won that UFC Light Heavyweight title thanks to a knockout. However, the fight result was overturned after Jones had positive tests for using turinabol.
The UFC 232 pay-per-view was originally set to take place in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, due to Jones having licensing issues there, they had to relocate to Los Angeles. There wasn’t enough time to have a hearing about Jones’ Dec. 9 test results to keep things in Vegas. He heads into the event with a 22-1-1 record including nine knockouts, six submissions, and seven decisions.
Meanwhile, Gustaffson is coming into the fight as the No. 2 overall fighter in the weight class. He’s been there since 2007 and racked up a record of 18-4 including 11 knockouts. He’s also coming in on a two-fight win streak with his last arriving back in May 2017 versus Glover Teixeira.
