01:18 PM ET 04.29 | Jon Jones knows he wants to fight next - Alexander Gustafsson. Jones, who defended his UFC light heavyweight title against Chael Sonnen at UFC 159, is currently dealing with a broken toe so his return date is unknown. "I've fought Lyoto Machida before, and I fight for the love of the sport," said Jones. "I fight for the people that support me, but I also fight to prove critics wrong. A lot of people believe that I have been successful because I appear to be larger than my opponents. And with Alexander Gustafsson that would be no more. So fighting Alexander Gustafsson, a guy who is six-feet-six or six-five, pretty long arms himself, long legs; I think that would be a great thing and that???s who I'd love to fight next."
