Gustafsson tested in Sweden, Request ‘Rumble’ be tested
Alexander Gustafsson seeks to avenge his decision loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones in the near future, but first he must get through Anthony Johnson on Jan 24.
Gustafsson faces Rumble in the main event on UFC on FOX 14 in Sweden but the Swede announced Monday that he was tested by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency or USADA.
“A request from Sweden has been sent to US Anti Doping commission to come and test me,” Gustafsson posted to his official Facebook page. “This is the way it’s done in Sweden, no matter where you are, you are under control which I really appreciate, I want my sport to be clean so everyone compete under the same terms.
“Therefore, I would like to request that the same tests applies to my competitor Rumble Johnson. I want us both to show the world that we are clean top athletes competing in the UFC on equal terms.”
The UFC recently announced that they would stop out of competition testing after a sample from Cung Le was botched and created controversy between the fighter and the organization.
