Alexander Gustafsson: I Was So Devastated by Loss to Anthony Johnson I Nearly Quit MMA

Jesse Holland at MMA Mania relays an interview with Gustafsson from Swedish site Expressen.

Gustafsson:

I had to bite the sour apple and now I have a new fight that made me very motivated. If I had not wanted to do this anymore, I would have stopped. But I want to continue.

Good to see him rededicated and looking forward.

“Biting the sour apple.” Great phrase.
