Alexander Gustafsson: 'I want to be active, I’m here to stay'

Jul 22, 2020 Alexander Gustafssons vroegtijdige pensioen kwam door emotioneel verlies op eigen terrein in Stockholm, Zweden.
Alexander 'The Mauler' Gustafsson maakt dit weekend zijn debuut in de UFC zwaargewicht divisie. Hij wordt verwelkomt door voormalig UFC-kampioen Fabricio 'Vai Cavalo' Werdum. Gustafsson laat weten dat zijn plotselinge pensioen te maken had met een gebroken hart.

Pensioen
Gustafsson kondigde in Stockholm, Zweden zijn pensioen aan nadat hij verloor van Anthony 'Lionheart' Smith. Tijdens de UFC on ESPN 14 media scrum laat The Mauler weten dat hij te emotioneel was na zijn verloren partij op eigen terrein.

“I was just heartbroken that’s all. It was a tough fight, it was in Stockholm. It was against a guy I know I’ve got the tools to beat but I didn’t obviously'', zegt Gustafsson.  “I felt like I lost the first round but started to pick up the pace and take points and winning the fight. But, then I did a mistake and Anthony Smith is a tough guy, it is a high-level. He saw an opportunity and he took it and he submitted me. It was a tough night and my emotions and thoughts were just chaos in my head. Then I took the call.”

Sparring
Gustafsson en Werdum hebben een klein verleden samen. De twee waren sparringspartners toen beide vechters bezig waren met een trainingskamp. The Mauler laat weten dat hij Werdum hardhandig aanpakte.

“We had a good spar. I went all in, him and me and it was a good sparring. I don’t remember who I was fighting back then, but I was in camp, he was in camp for a fight, but make history short, I beat him in that sparring session. I beat him bad.”
