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.
