Taken out of a key fight due to injury, Alexander Gustafsson would like to fill the gap if the UFC later finds itself in a similar jam as an injury replacement – or face former light heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida.

Alexander is gonna have to have gotten a little faster if he wants to beat lyoto. If not lyoto will counter his way to a victory all night

I could see this fight going either way as both guys have great styles. Lyoto is no cakewalk for anyone and props to Alexander for wanting this fight as I don't think too many guys want to call out Machida.

i say give him the fight. seems like a pretty good matchup at this point. the mousasi fight could still happen but not for a while being mousasi has a knee injury. i think jones would beat all 3

After seeing Gegard's fight last weekend, I'd much rather see Gus vs Machida. I think its a good test for both
