As far as Alexander (The Mauler) Gustafsson is concerned, a win over Mauricio (Shogun) Rua is enough to guarantee a light-heavyweight title shot.

“Absolutely, when I get a win over Shogun, it will have been six wins in a row,” Gustafsson said over the phone. “I’ve been active, I’ve been fighting and I’ve been winning (impressively). I think it will be time for me.

“It will be life-changing for me. It means everything. It’s a dream come true. I’ve looked up to him since I started and I’ve always looked up to his fighting. It will mean everything for me as a person and for my career.”
