UFC 165: Alexander Gustafsson 'ready to shock the world'

UFC Light Heavyweight challenger Alexander Gustafsson plans to "shock the world" by beating Jon Jones and taking his title at UFC 165 in this video interview with Ariel Helwani.

UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones is a huge favorite to beat challenger Alexander Gustafsson tomorrow night at UFC 165 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The oddsmakers have Jones at -900 and Gustafsson at +600. But Gustafsson is unphased.

Here's what he had to say at yesterday's pre-fight press conference (per Sports Net Canada):

"I don't takes anything personally. I don't read too much. I don't think too much. I'm going to go in there and shock the world on Saturday.

"I'm more than prepared," he added. "I can't wait to get in there. I'm just living the dream right now. I've got a one in a lifetime shot and I'm going to do the best of it."
