What an odd 24 hours it’s been for the UFC light heavyweight division.

Just yesterday we reported the UFC 178 media brawl between division champion Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier.  While all that madness unfolded, the original, and potentially next, challenger Alexander Gustafsson underwent successful knee surgery in Sweden.

“Done, just woke up!” Gustafsson said on Instagram. “Never been more motivated my friends!”

We wish “The Mauler” all the best in his recovery, which he reports will only be a few weeks. Until then all eyes will be on the winner of Jones and Cormier at UFC 178 which takes place on Sat., Sept. 27, 2014 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
