Alexander "The Mauler" Gustafsson blogs about his recent win over Cyrille Diabate at UFC 120 "Let's do a quick fight analysis: I was ready to go the distance with Cyrille, I knew that he was a good striker, decent on the ground and hard to knock out. When the fight started I right away felt that my punches and combos were hitting him and that he couldn't keep up with my pace. The game plan was to take him down and be on top striking, but during the fight I felt that it was going so well, so I kept boxing with him. In the second round I took him down, got on top, he had a strong under hook but I managed to sprawl, established mount and took him out with a rear naked choke on the third attempt, I don't think it was sunk in either but he didn't want to be in the fight any more. I did some small mistakes that I will fix for my next fight. Answers to questions: I will be traveling to Alliance MMA before my fights and also during off season. I hope to write a new [UFC] contract soon, but I haven't heard anything yet. My financial situation is better after this fight, I won't be working the doors at clubs anymore, just training full time! I would like to face most fighters in my division but Tito Ortiz would be a good name ;) I haven't heard anything about Lil Nog but if I got the opportunity it would be an honor!"
