Default UFC 165: Jones vs Gustafsson

I don't know if any of you caught this fight last night but it was easily fight of the year so far. Jones retained the Light Heavyweight title via Unanimous decision in a fight where he hit Gustaffson with everything but the kitchen sink but couldn't put him down all the while taking the first significant damage of his career. This was the only guy u thought that might could beat Jones and he gave it his best but Jones is just on another level. Only time will tell if when we talk about the greatest in MMA history if we rank Jones above Fedor and Silva. I personally already do.

I don't dispute the decision, even if a judge had it Gustafsson winning 3 rounds to 2, but I do dispute the one judge giving Jones 4 rounds. No way he won 4. Three at best. A fight last night is why I think MMA needs to try to get away from round to round scoring. Some of those rounds were split down the middle and I think it would be best to judge the fight holistically. On another note, I don't think I've ever seen a fighter as gassed as I saw Gustafsson in the last two minutes of the 5th round. Great fight.

That is understandable considering it was his first 5 round fight. Jones has had a couple of those by now.

Those last few minutes of round 5 showed Gustaffson's heart and will, cause that's all that was left! He gave JJ the best competition that he has faced to date. A lot of pundits didn't give AG much of a chance but I felt he had a great chance because of his power and accuracy. He showed last night why he was worthy.

Default Re: UFC 165: Jones vs Gustafsson

anyone who thinks Jones won that fight last night needs their head examined. at one point in the 3rd rnd, UFC showed the significant strike count to that point, for each fighter. it was 18 for Jones and 88 for Gus. I mean, look at the 2 of them after the fight for Gods sake. Gus had a cut to his head from one spinning elbow, and Jones looked like freaking Quasimodo! Jones got schooled in the stand up department, and could not get Gus to the ground except once out of the many attempts. even then, he did zero damage, as Gus got right back to his feet.

I told the guys that Jones was going to get the decision as soon as the fight ended. All of his hype won't let judges make the right decision. the guy got his ASS WHIPPED!

Jones is nothing without that long reach advantage, and I hope he goes to the Heavyweight division like he claims he wants to. he will be out cold in one of his first 3 fights. Gus should have kept pressure on him, and he would have finished him. Jones doesn't like to be hit, and would have layed down.

I'm not sold on him being one of the best ever, thats a joke. Gus won that fight, despit what the judges said. if he had some coaches worth a damn, he could have finished Jones. he needed 3 things. keep circling and using the footwork, to make the spinning elbows and kicks of Jones hit a very low percentage. throw combos coming out of the clinch. Jones would come out of the clinch with his hands chest high. combos would have killed him here. LEG KICKS ON THOSE SKINNY ASS JON JONES LEGS! he can't kick you if it hurts to bad to pick his leg up. Machida had him limping after 5 hard kicks to the leg. jones has no muscle to aborb leg kicks, and Gus was using these in the first round with good success.

If you're gonna beat a champion, you're gonna have to make it a landslide. The cards dont see cuts and bruises, and from what Ive heard bones got the best of him in the late rounds to the point where he was having trouble gathering himself.

If they were both no name fighters then Gus would have won...but they are not and like has been said to beat the champion on the card you need to make it more resounding than it was or not leave it to the judges in the first place. All of that being said the end of the fight and the conditioning of both fighters made it clear that Jones was winning in the end and had Gus in trouble..this probably helped Jones with the decision.

Gustafsson gained a fan in me last night after his comments. I still like Jon Jones, but, I have mad respect for Gustafsson for what he said as in to being the champ.

If forrest griffin did enough to win the belt from rampage with damn leg kicks, then this was a damn robbery. Gus got the shaft. This being called fight of the year by the mma community, and some saying the best fight at light hw ever! If either are true, how does jones win by unanimus decision? MMA judging is pathetic.
