On Saturday Alexander Gustafsson is making his return to the octagon to face No. 11 ranked Nikita Krylov. On the UFC media day, the former title challenger was confident when talking about returning to the light heavyweight division again.

”A little bit because it’s been a while. But I’m just going to continue to beat people up, that’s what we do.

Happy to be back in light heavy to perform, to get the W back.”
