Prediction: correct Gustafsson   wrong KO/TKO   wrong Round 2  

They must not like Blachowicz or something. Almost gave him Rumble and now he gets Gustafsson? Doesn't really have the UFC record to be fighting top 5 guys. Solid turn around fight for Gustafsson though.

I think this is to build Gus back up.  Gus has talked pretty depressingly after his last two loses.  He is a big star for the UFC in Europe, I think they are worried about losing him early. So they are giving him this match to build his confidence back up.

May have been Gus that waited for this type of match-up. I heard some stuff that he turned down a main event on this card because he didn't want to fight 5 rounds.

In all likelihood, this is a showcase. Gus is just too well rounded to get out-pointed here.
