'No chance' Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson II to be held in Sweden

Jon Jones wanted to make one thing clear today - there is no way he will fight Alexander Gustafsson on the challenger's home turf. UFC president Dana White has said that three cities are being considered for the light heavyweight title rematch in September between champion Jones and Gustafsson - Toronto (where they first met), Las Vegas, and Stockholm. 

Well, according to Jon Jones, we can go ahead and narrow it down to just two cities because Stockholm is out of the question. "It won't be Sweden. No chance," Jones told MMA Fighting today.

Jones simply does not feel it appropriate for he, the champion, to have to go into hostile territory in the challenger's home town. "I have no reason to," he explained.

"I'm the champ and he's the challenger, I don't find it appropriate for me to go to his back yard."

As for whether he'd rather, then, fight in Toronto or Vegas, "Bones" expressed no preference. "Either one of those locations is fine with me," he said.

Do you think it would be unfair for Jones to fight in Sweeden, Gustafsson's home country? Let us know in the comments section.
