The last time I was completely dismissive of a fight, Matt Serra defeated Georges St. Pierre to become the welterweight champion. I’m trying not to make the same mistake twice but I don’t see many avenues where Alexander Gustafsson finds victory against Jon Jones at UFC 165 in Toronto. The UFC hyped this fight on the notion that Jones is fighting someone who is just as big...
