Gus needs to work on his accuracy, you guys.
Think you’re having a bad day? Well, unless you got a boot to the face by one of the best light heavyweights in the world, your day was probably better than Alexander Gustafsson‘s coach.
Gus posted a video today that showed him hitting mitts with his trainer, Michael Andreas. Unfortunately for Michael, Gus missed the mark and unloaded a spinning back kick straight to his coach’s grill.
Luckily, Michael took it like a champ and carried on, saying “let’s go” moments after getting the foot-to-face treatment. Safe to say that if anyone on our staff ate the same kick, we would wake up a while later with a concussion diagnosis and wondering why the hell we ever agreed to hold mitts.
Alexander is gearing up to face Glover Teixeira at UFC Fight Night 109 on May 28. Here’s hoping he doesn’t take his coach’s head off before then.
