Alexander Gustafsson set to face Jon Jones at UFC 232

Alexander Gustafsson vs Jon Jones will fight against one another in UFC 232

Following a tumultuous disruption and a sudden alteration in the venue, the Ultimate Fighting Championship will conclude the year 2018 with a pair of championship bouts to be held this Saturday within the confines of the Forum in Los Angeles.The former controversial titleholder Jon Jones will strive to recapture his championship belt as he squares off against the UFC combatant Alexander Gustafsson in the headline event. Meanwhile, the reigning female champions Amanda Nunes and Cris “Cyborg” Justino are scheduled for a showdown in the 145-pound featherweight title clash, intended for Justino.

On the 21st of September 2013, Alexander Gustafsson and Jon Jones supposedly delivered an extraordinary title bout, etching their names in the annals of Ultimate Fighting Championship history. Their encounter was a contest where both fighters left an indelible mark, forever enshrined in the sport. It’s no hyperbole to say that their battle remains one of the most spectacular 25-minute displays ever witnessed in this sport.

Five years have elapsed since the epic 2013 duel between Alexander Gustafsson and Jon Jones, and fans now have the opportunity to witness the UFC fighters face off once again. Nevertheless, the narrative surrounding this bout is different, not what fans had anticipated. Instead of revisiting their initial encounter or dwelling on their competitive rivalry, the focus during the pre-fight press conference in Los Angeles was singular.

The scrutiny shifted towards Jones’ history of drug tests. A journalist questioned Jones on why the discourse seemed to veer away from the fight itself, only fixating on what substances were detected in Jones’ system. In response, Jones abruptly redirected the conversation by requesting the next question. The preceding days had been dominated by extensive discussions surrounding a specific drug test issue for Jones.
