Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson 2 official for UFC 178 on Sept. 27 in Toronto



Oh yes!  The highly anticipated rematch between current UFC 205-pound champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson will go down on September 27, 2014 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

Originally, the bout was though to be held at UFC 177 on Aug. 30 in Las Vegas, but Jones preferred a later date.

“There was never an issue with a contract,” Jones told UFC.com. “I was traveling and finally got to Vegas and got to talk with Dana and Lorenzo. We talked and September 27th, I’ll be fighting Gustafsson.”

The first time the pair met, Jones was booed after he was awarded the split decision win.  Many thought that the Swede did enough damage to win the title and become the first European to hold UFC gold.
