"Always focus on the title. My main goal is to bring the belt home. We have no belt. It would be amazing, and probably the greatest achievement for the Swedish and European MMA." - Alexander Gustafsson via Tatame
Swedish mixed martial arts standout Alexander Gustafsson explains his motivation for fighting and gives his thoughts on bringing the light-heavyweight title back to Sweden.
After his dominant unanimous decision victory over Rua at UFC on FOX 5, UFC president Dana White declared Gustafsson the number one contender to Jones' light-heavyweight title, and he will likely face the winner of Jones and former middleweight contender Chael Sonnen who are scheduled to face off on April 27.
If Gustafsson becomes the light-heavyweight champion, he will become the first European ever to win a UFC title.
