WOW! Why isn't anyone talking about this? Jon Jones finally was in a fight. Alexander Gustavson impressed the hell out of me. A 5 round war with Jones eeking it even though it was a unanimous decision a lot of people had Gustavson winning the fight. I had it 2 rounds Gus, 1 round draw and the 4th and 5th I had going to Jones. As the current champ I thought the decision was a good one.
Both guys ended up in the hospital after the fight Jones looked to be the more wounded though. Wonder if Glover Texteira will be the next in line or if they will do a rematch since Jones has never really had anyone give him a fight like this. I think even though Jones had a 5 inch reach advantage the fact he couldn't keep Gustavson on the outside like he normally does was the factor that made this fight so good. Finally fighting someone his own size and looking like h can actually be beat.

Some other great fights on the card as well. Spinning back kick knock ot by Barrow showing he is a freaking beast who hasn't lost in 8 years.

Evenly matched.Makes for the best fights.He won it in the last round when he had him wobbled with the elbow and head kicks.Looked like he was going down.Docs wanted to stop it before that but ref said no and Jones pleaded to go on.Close call but STILL your light heavyweight champion Jon Bones Jones baby.

Fire the judge who scored it 49-46, f'ing ponderous.

Incredible fight all the way around, but I thought Gustafson was the winner of the first three rounds and got robbed in the decision...

Yhea great night of fights and probably my #2 fight of all time. no way in hell it should have been unanimous decision though. I did not even think this was going to be a fight at all. Jones seemed out of place and not like himself, almost like he was unsure or hurt coming into this fight. I guess he busted up his foot bad in the late first or early second round so that me have started the problems. I love to see that has has the ability to dig down and get gritty when he had too. That what real champs do. The story of that fight really came down to him not being about to get Gus. down, that cut his game in half or more.

I think they may let Tux. get the fight even though this is the first time in years we have a legitimate rematch. This ain't no edger/bj penn fight.

I had Mirtione in his fight just to to Schaub's suspect chin, but it's MMA and Brandon did a great job.
