The only hold-up at the moment is Jones agreeing to the same.
“Yes, that's true,” Gustafsson’s manager, Manos Terzitane, told ESPN. “We were offered to fight on the card at the end of August in Las Vegas.
“This is a big fight. The first title fight was the best fight in UFC history. We're just hoping Jones will accept the fight.”
After his victory over Glover Teixeira in April, Jones avoided talking about the proposed rematch, and as of the time of publication, there had been no word from Jones or his management about whether or not they would accept a UFC 177 showdown with Gustafsson.
