03:14 PM ET 09.20 | UFC light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson has a great opportunity this weekend to make a big splash in the mixed martial arts world, when he takes on UFC champion Jon Jones in the main event of UFC 165. Gustafsson is a big underdog heading in to the fight, but he is not taking the betting odds to heart and he believes he has exactly what it takes to shock the work on Saturday night. Gustafsson is one of the few fighters that has the range comparable to Jones, so it is an intriguing matchup. If the fight stays standing, Gustafsson will have a real chance to pull off the upset, but he will need to avoid Jones' slick takedowns and find a way to stay on his feet.
