Alexander Gustafsson vs. Jon Jones: Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Alexander Gustafsson and Jon Jones - Esther Lin/MMAFighting

Alexander Gustafsson's dominant win over Mauricio "Shogun" Rua puts him on a collision course with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

At UFC on FOX 5, Gustafsson was brilliant in picking apart Jones' predecessor en route to a lopsided unanimous decision.

The MMA world has talked about a potential showdown between Gustafsson and Jones for over a year. Both of the light heavyweight stars are considered babes of the UFC. Fans have watched them grow from potential prospects to MMA superstars.

Jones, in particular, has surpassed all expectations.

He has only been champion for a little over a year, and fans are already mentioning his name alongside Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre as one of the sport's all-time greats.

A plethora of legends have already fallen at the hands of Jones in dominant fashion. Regardless of who he faces, Jones seems to reside on a wavelength of physical and mental superiority that his opponents have yet to comprehend.

Unlike previous opponents, Gustafsson has the physical tools to overcome some of the problems Jones presents in a fight, but would that be enough?

If Jones gets past Chael Sonnen in April, the stars could align for a title fight against Gustafsson.

Here is the head-to-toe breakdown.
