Alexander Gustafsson Wears Anti-Doping Shirt At UFC 232 Weigh-In

Alexander Gustafsson is a savage inside the Octagon, and outside.

The Swedish light-heavyweight contender brilliantly trolled Jon Jones at UFC 232's ceremonial weigh-ins, last night.

Before hitting the scales, Gustafsson whipped off his UFC shirt to reveal another shirt which had an unsubtle message aimed at his opponent.

Superb.

Of course, Jones had an adverse finding in his drug sample which prompted the promotion to switch the whole event from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, after Nevada State Athletic Commission failed to licence the American fighter.

Meanwhile, both men officially made weight for the UFC light-heavyweight title fight.

Gustafsson weighed 204.5 lbs (14.6 st) whilst Jones came in at 204 lbs (14.6 st).

Gold will be on the line following Daniel Cormier relinquishing his belt.

"Today I am going to relinquish the UFC light heavyweight title," he said in a statement to ESPN.

"I am not going to be stripped of the belt that I've defended with my all for three and a half years. Being stripped of a title suggests you've done something wrong, and I haven't.

"I'd rather walk away this way, with my head held high as it always has been, than have the history books say I was stripped. I've defended this title this year. I was approached with the idea of fighting at heavyweight, so I took it.

"I fought three times in 2018. No champion has been more active than me. I am the fighter of the year. My story and my legacy will not include me being stripped of a title. They can have it."

Gustafsson will be hoping it's third time lucky at a UFC title following unsuccessful attempts against Jones at UFC 165, and Cormier at UFC 192.
