A great fight by both guys. I was really pulling for Gustafsson, but I can’t argue with the decision. I had it 3 rounds to 2 in either direction.

It was nice to see Jones get busted up a bit. Gustafsson looked good. Now, give Mousasi his Gustafsson fight and let Glover T. have his crack at Jones. I’m guessin’ we’ll see the Jones vs Gustafsson rematch after it plays out.

At first I was rooting for an upset. Round 1, when Gustaff showed he could beat Jones and even took him down, I was cheering for Gustaff. Then…

Jones showed why he’s a champ and an elite athlete. He adjusted. He fought he’s heart out. He overcame the biggest test of his career. He showed he’s a real fighter. He won me over. From rounds 3 forward I was on the edge of my seat pulling for Jones.

Jones is a true champion. He won 3 out of 5 rounds.

BEST LHW FIGHT EVER. Real drama, technique, and heart. (Better than two over the hill fighters swinging wildly at each other with no defense, ahem Shogun v. Hendo)

Saw the fight a couple of times:
Round 1: Gustafsson
Round 2: Very close. Jones had better strikes JBJ
Round 3: Gustafsson
Round 4: Jones
Round 5: Close again. Maybe Jones

Gustafsson started out very good but tired more than Jones at the end even though both fighters were exasusted. I believed Jones finished the fight a bit stronger than Gustafsson

Amosaback Says, in 9-22-2013 at 13:02:32 from 174.52.208.232

I din’t have a problem with Jones getting the win. Here’s how I scored it.

Round 1: Gus
Round 2: Close (I could see that round going for either guy.)
Round 3: Gus
Round 4: Jones (Gus won the majority of that round, but I think damage trumps strike count. The way Jones hurt Gus at the end of the round was more significant than whatever Gus did during the first 4 minutes of the round. Honestly, if Jones had had his wits about him he’d have kept Gus in that double-plum clinch and finished him with knees against the fence.)
Round 5: Jones

It was an incredible fight, and I honestly would be nearly as content with a Gus winning the fight since round 2 was so close. The only judging issue I really disagreed with was the 49-46 call for Jones.

BOTH of these guys are absolute warriors!

rematch! gustafsson just has to work on his cardio to throw a bit more in later rounds .. counter jones high kick , throw some punches that collapse into elbows like jones does .do some more spinning elbows.kick to the upper thigh like jones does and next time he can take the title !

Great fight. I guess now people cant say Jones hasnt been tested anymore. Gustafson came to fight. Jones won on agression, kicks and cardio. Alex may be the best boxer in the division.

Tempted Says, in 9-22-2013 at 13:27:32 from 24.98.188.66    

He won’t get an immediate rematch. He got beat by Jones. It wasn’t a controversial decision, the only people crying about either hate Bones or love Gust. Bones won 3 rounds, and could have been given 4 depending on what the judges were looking for(quantity or quality of strikes). Gust has to come back, beat some more contenders and might get another title shot next year.

just rewatched it, gave gus 1,3,4 and jon 5. think round 2 was very close. round 4 jon ended well but the first 4 minutes gus was winning. will be good to see a rematch, the judge who had it 49-46 was retarded

Great fight, very close, can’t wait to see rematch. Teixeira is a bad ass, I think he might give problems to Jones as well, especially now that Jones has been proven beatable. 205 started looking boring already, now there is a feeling again that title is on the line.

ruddo293 Says, in 9-22-2013 at 14:54:04 from 66.75.74.9    

You can’t argue with the decision…. Gus needed rounds 4 and 5 and i don’t belive he won neither. Yes, Round 1 or 2 could have either went to Jones… but i doubt he won the 1st (maybe).. either way, Jones won atleast one of those first 3 rounds. He was winning the early parts of the 4th, but once that spinning elbow landed on his forhead, everything changed. Gus was hurt bad! People need to stop complaining, it could have went either way… The rounds are scored 10-9, not 10-8′s. If Shogun didn’t get a 10-8 for the 5th round of the Dan henderson fight, what makes you think Gus would’ve received a 10-8 round on jones.

Shogun vs Hendo was an amazing fight first off. Those two guys are the reason u watch mma period. Second off I think it’s bullshit that bc jones is the icon right now he gets the decision even tho Gustafson beats the brakes off u.

yo Says, in 9-22-2013 at 15:29:45 from 108.0.96.135    

that was a great fight I thought gustafsson won the fight but I am not a judge just a fan. I really hope they make glover fight a top ten fighter before he gets a title shot, he don’t deserve a title shot yet glover is 22 and 2 with no top ten fights yet he is ranked number 2 in the ufc. Lets see glover vs mousasi or even Henderson, if he dominates then give him a title shot.
He is only getting all this hype cause he trained with chuck liddel 22-2 fighting cans and everybody thinks he is awesome, bader almost knocked him out.

big mike Says, in 9-22-2013 at 15:49:32 from 63.248.115.119    

Jones is good a picking his shots and pushing forward with a good offense. I think jones weakness is his defense. Look at him turn his head as a punch is thrown. For a moment he has no idea wtf is going on and then is able to recover when his opponent doesn’t capitalize on it. If someone can take advantage of that and able to throw some strong combos jones will go down. Guf did good but didnt capitalize enough on jones cowering at his punches. I know easier said then done but its just a hole i saw in jones game.

Great fight.
Thanks Mr.B for sharing the link.

Until the end of the 4th, I had Gustafsson winning.

My scorecard:
1st Jones 10 Gustafsson 9 (Barely)
2nd Jones 9 Gustafsson 10
3rd Jones 9 Gustafsson 10
4th Jones 10 Gustafsson 9

And it played itself in the last round to my humble opinion.

Tight round, really hard to decide, but without Gustafsson showing the obvious sign of being tired (hands on hips) bending for air, plus few elbows + 1 take down may have cost him the title.

Props to both fighters, I believe both took it with caution. If there is to be a rematch, it is going to be much more intense and more blood.

I believe Gus should have started to landed the same elbow techniques as Jones towards the 4th and 5th.

Hope he does in the next.

@yo, who else will you put in the mix if you’re the matchmaker? Glover’s popular in Brazil ($), he’s a legitimate threat and damn is his BJJ top-notch. All that’s left of top 5 fighters yet to fight Jones is Phil Davis, who Gus will probably fight next before another title shot. The other top 10 fighters are lesser draws, old, or lost to Jones already.

CycloneX Says, in 9-22-2013 at 18:17:30 from 71.108.160.243    

I had it 4 to 1 for Gustafsson..cracked jones near the eye and made it bleed..threw jones down first..while jones trying to put him down for 4 rounds.Jones pokes Gustafsson in the eye and that seems to be the whole fight jones reaching out to block Gus,gus then would throw that overhand right and crack jones in the head.Gus is too good and seems to save his shots for a later fight.jones is a can…total can with reach until he fights another tall guy and then he has to do his spinning back elbow and high kicks.Even during the 4 or 5th round jones would do a spinning back elbow and tie up his spiny legs and to lean on gus to save him from falling…total can jones is.

Why do rounds have to go to either one or the other guy? Why no one, not fans not judges, ever score draws?? It’s always “it could have gone either way”, so it’s a draw, right? My scoring…

10-9 Gus
10-10
10-10
10-9 Jon
10-9 Jon

49-48 very close fight, it could have gone either way! lol

You must have been sucking joe rogan cock. that was a great fight but jones got worked he only won the last minute of the fourth, the next time they fight and they will fight again it will be an even better fight the second time can not wait.
And no I aint no nut huger I actual thought jones was going to destroy gustafsson.

Jo Says, in 9-22-2013 at 18:52:10 from 184.61.57.72    

All of this ‘you gotta beat the champ’ and ‘tie goes to the champ’ or whatever has no basis in the scoring rules nor has it been the case in practice in past title fights. I’m thinking BJ losing to Edgar, and Edgar losing to Henderson. Also Griffin over Jackson.

Justifying a result based on some bogus rule you made up is lame.

Justifying your result because Jones won the fight according to the scoring rules, well that’s fine.

Awesome, classic fight. I’m glad there aren’t that many haters on here. Regardless what you think of Jones, he showed warrior spirit last night. For those mad that Gustaffson lost the decision, he’ll get another chance and proved that he does have what it takes to be a champ and become a star in the UFC.

Gus won 3-2 , the judges made the call. JBJ fought like a black man from NY after rd 1 not like one from Vermont, Gus will get a RM, I love Glov as a fighter and his aggression but it’ll lead to a KO due to his lack of patience against JBJ, Cred to Jon for adjusting for some obvs. s*** he wasnt rdy for, but the eye poke was poor showing on his part.. he didnt like getting his kick caught either, both guys walk away champs

Jones is a more dynamic fighter and Gus is more one dimensional

My $ would be with Jones in a rematch

Good close fight. It was close enough to where I cant complain no matter who they had declared champ. In big fights I often feel it takes a round for the people to realize what they are seeing. For instance the first round Jones was getting beat but most people were kinda like “wow Gustafsson is not bad” its the second round where people react like “this is really happening”. Judges are human. So I dont have a problem with the decision. Good fight either way

danada Says, in 9-22-2013 at 21:16:45 from 174.88.144.39    

Honestly, that was one of the best fights I’ve ever seen. Wow! Soooo good! Both so talented. Honestly, if we’re going purely on rounds won, I had Gustafsson winning. His left hook was the bane of Jones’ existence. It was always there and always landing clean. Jones can take a shot. Those uppercuts and even a bunch of the overhand rights were landing as well. Gustafsson in my opinion is a much better striker, especially with his hands. Jones a better kicker. Jones is also a better athlete. I think Jones won because Gustafsson became more visibly tired at the end of the fight. Jones hurt him bad at the end of the 4th, which Gustafsson was probably winning until the last minute of that round. Jones won the 4th and 5th in my opinion, but Gustafsson was able to eat his shots and stay up. It was 1 and 1 for takedowns completed. I wouldn’t say Alexander was robbed, but I did feel like he won more rounds cleanly. Jones just finished stronger and looked like the winner. It’s a tough loss, but I feel like Gustafsson shows more overall potential and much better striking. If he was facing any other fighter he wouldn’t have gassed like that or even had to go to 5 rounds. Jones is just such a good athlete that he tired him out. For the majority of that fight Gustafsson was the better fighter and he landed more total strikes.

#sby youre a meathead or a true idiot. How can you insult 2 legendary fighters? If Jones continues to fight when hes as old as hendo lets see if hes just as relevent as dan is. dan is 43 and is still dangerous in multiple weight classes. nothing against jones, but as GREAT a fighter he is hes still new and young in his career.

If the fight is really really close like this one
It usually goes to the champ
And that’s not to say that Gus lost at all! He clearly messed jones up (face)
Gus could have possibly won on number of total affective strikes landed
If I could call it….. It’s a draw immediate re- match

Well guess what Gust won rounds 1, 2 and 3. But Jones won 4 and 5 by a bigger margin. And ultimately he was winning at the end. It could have gone either way and in a fight like this there will always be these fans adamant they know the correct outcome!! All I can say is RRRRREEEEEMMMAAAATTTTCCCCCHHHHH, REWIND AND COME AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But it really doesn’t matter who won, both these guys just got an epic fight on their legacy and proved themselves to be tougher than you or I and I can ever hope to be.

I wanted Gust to win the fight due to his performance which i was hugely impressed with, although i agree with someone above who said the spinning elbow changed the decision and the fight.

Gust more punches landed Jones more Kicks. Good to see bones get a bloody face though

guys? First time that Jones fought someone his size. What hapen? He got nailed. Without the size diference he his very normal. His weapon was keeping the distance from his oponent. take way that and his nothing special. I bet 100.000§ that brian schaub, Mitrione, Kongo, cormier, josh barnet, Travis Brown (people of his size) would beat him easy. No sweet,baby!! now rampage, machida,rachad, shogun, belfort are small compare to him. He is fraude not GOAT he is just bigger.

One thing is for sure, Jon is not use to getting hurt. Skin and ability to absorb punishment like he did isn’t there. Not sure if he has razor thin skin or not but getting hit in the face he is not use to. I think its one of the main reasons he look like crap to that level. I have seen guys take more punishment and face not be looking like jabba the hut in the grill. I do like the pic–even tho I feel like Jon gonna say something stupid and take away from this very sportsman like pic that help make MMA stand tall as a sport and not barbaric.

Close fight. To take the belt away from the champion it needs to be a convincing victory. The judges got it right, even though it looked like a draw and depending on how you looked at it some could say Gustafsson won the fight.

They definitely need to fight again (REMATCH). I’m sure they will make it happen soon. Maybe after another fight each they do it again and it will be a much more highly anticipated fight the next time around. Maybe Super Bowl weekend?

Gustafsson is the real deal and just like Jones he is one of the best young up and coming pound for pound fighters in world. Just like Ali needed a true rival like Joe Frazier to be great, I believe Jones now has someone who can legitimately challenge his and will bring out the best of him.

More so Jones but I believe either one of these guys could beef up and fight at Heavyweight…. and I think just might end up beating Veleaquez or Dos Santos.

McClinchey Says, in 9-23-2013 at 17:44:19 from 99.228.54.247    

Gustavson had around 100 headshots.
jones had around 20.

gustavsson stopped 10 or more takedowns

jones scored 1 takedown

gustavson tryed maybe 5 and scored 1.

all that being said i can see how jones could have been stealing rounds, I think the crowd f**** with the judges they give rounds to jones because his headkicks glance and the crowd gasps then gustavvson lands 10 punches in betweeen each close call and because there easy to miss if your not paying attention, which the judges are paid to do… so even tho i lost $100 betting on gustavsson and could have won $400, as an mma fan im used to used to close calls going the wrong way. like one judge had canello drawing mayweather lol, than this fight is a unanimous decision for jones? like for F*** sakes

Gus said it best, “I’m young and I will be back better” because he knew he won or was very,very close!! He now knows the few adjustments he needs to make to beat the champ!!
Bone’s face before the decision shows how worried he was that he would lose!! I don’t see Bones being able to make any adjustments that could help him besides improving his boxing. But its apparent thats his weakness vs someone of his stature. Gustafon will finish in a rematch!!!

It was a great fight but I saw it going the other way. 3-2 Gus though close. I can’t count slappy leg kicks and blocked head kicks as scoring.
Very close but Jones only took round 3 and 4 in my opinion.

round 1,2 and 3 were easily gustafson! even 4th round was all gustafson accept that little take down that jones had which he couldn’t do anything with it. if Alex didn’t gas out in the last round it would easily be 4 to 1
