Jon "Bones" Jones and Alexander "The Mauler" Gustafsson will run back their 2013 classic on Dec. 29 in the main event of UFC 232. The rematch goes down at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas' hottest new venue. Tickets are on sale right here on AXS.com. In honor of this historic collision, here's a look at five reasons to watch Jones and Gustafsson fight at UFC 232:
5. The worst stylistic match-up for Jones.
Gustafsson is a terrible stylistic match-up for Jones, as he's just as quick and powerful as the former champ. For that reason, things could be very interesting on fight night. We're most likely not going to see Jones run through the Swede, as he has done with so many other high-profile fighters.
4. The physical similarities.
Jones often enjoys a distinct height and reach advantage in his fights, but he won't against Gustafsson. "The Mauler" is very similar physically, standing just as tall as the 6-foot-4 Jones.
3. The high stakes.
With Daniel Cormier being stripped of his light heavyweight world title, Jones and Gustafsson will have the opportunity to fight for a championship belt. The addition of a title on the line makes this fight even more of a must-watch affair.
2. Jones and Gustafsson are polar opposites.
When it comes to MMA fights, everyone loves to have someone to root for. With Jones vs. Gustafsson, we have a former champion that always seems to shoot himself in the foot with controversial issues, going up against a guy with a squeaky-clean image.
1. Jones is returning from a long layoff.
With Jones being out of action since the summer of 2017, fight fans have had a chance to really miss him -- and get the itch to see him back in action. Is Jones still in his prime at the age of 31? The only way to find out is to tune in on Dec. 29.
