Alexander Gustafsson potential UFC return, wants to fight Luke Rockhold

Gustafsson announced his retirement after the loss against Anthony Smith on June 1.

Speaking with MMAViking.com Alexander was asked if he was planning to fight again, Gustafsson said: “It came quite fast, I was home for a couple of days, and I had itching in my hands and wanted to get back and train.”

Alexander also said that he was not in shape to fight right away: “I just want to train and get into shape, let’s see how it goes.”

Despite the fact that Luke Rockhold lost a fight by knockout, Gustafsson still has respect towards him and says he is a legend. 

Alexander admitted that he wants to come back in the near future and would love to fight vs. Luke. 

“A fight against Luke would be a great way to come back. He is a tough guy, a legend.” Gustafsson said.
