Gustafsson Dominates, KOs Teixeira

Alexander Gustafsson made a strong case that he deserves the next title shot at light-heavyweight on Sunday evening, dominating Glover Teixeira in Stockholm, Sweden. The hometown favorite won the main event by knockout in the fifth round after dominating for twenty-plus minutes.

Gustafsson likely cemented himself as the next challenger for whoever wins between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones at UFC 214 in July. Gustafsson has had memorable fights with both Jones and Cormier, proving to be the only fighter to put Jon Jones in true danger and also giving Cormier a run for his money in 2015.
