Good. It was silly to voluntarily give up 18 months out of the prime of his career for a title shot.

They definitely want him fighting Rumble and imo that's a winnable fight for him. Let's not forget Rumble isn't the best when faced with adversity, would be an interesting fight if made. Gus has a great chin but idk if he could survive a first round onslaught from AJ.

I'm actually not sure they do Rumble vs AG. It would make sense to determine the next best contender but that being said if they do intend on going to Sweeden with a title fight they may not want to risk a Gustafsson loss. I can see them matching up Bader and Gustafsson and letting A.J smash other LHW's in the mean time. I'm interested to see the matchmaking after this post from AG.
