Whether jones won or not is a completely different issue.

If you have judges calling that a 10-8,

The only two "decisive" wins were the last two by Jones, and not decisive enough to warrant a 10-8. I can understand giving him one of the first three, they really were extremely close, but honestly, Gusty did more damage and landed more shots in all 3 of those rounds... This was a very tough decision and I really don't understand how there was a 49-46... just doesn't make sense to me

if we going to take damage into account I though jones looked worse after the fight.

Edit: also 10-8 rounds without knockdowns or total domination is impossible.

fight was amazingly close, and jon offered up some amazing resistance across the first three rounds, but i think the SS-count will indicate that gusty DID win those first three.

jones mounted a nice (very close) comeback in 4 and 5, but i think the punch stats will show that gusty DID win this fight if it was scored by a better judging system.

gustafsson DID win this fight in reality.

but like i said, jonesy is the champ... i do believe that you have to grab the belt from the champ, not put it to the judges.

much respect to bones and the mauler, either way. both fighters basically proved they belong as co-kings of sparta.

Per Mike Bohn

@MikeBohnMMA: UFC officials just confirmed with me that Jon Jones will not attend the post-fight press conference. He is en route to a local hospital.

What's next though, Glover is a step down from Gus and doesn't have the mobility and quickness, or the length and height of Alex. He would be much easier fight for Jones. Gus should get a rematch after say beating Glover in a #1 contender bout.

jones should actually be more terrified of taking on glover and then following with a rematch against an improved gusty. he should be absolutely terrified.


gusty made the single-biggest leap in skill and gameplan i've ever seen in MMA right there.

well that would be kind of sad

see as he is 26 i believe.

I mean its one thing for anderson to be over it, but kind of sad for jones.

I dont think thats it. I think Jones underestimated gus.
I think jones made a bad decision to focus on striking.
He should have worked on takedowns and taken the fight to the ground.
We saw what phil davis did to gus on the ground.

If jones had managed to get it to the ground gus was in huge trouble. Credit to gus for realizing this and focusing his training on takedown defense. His takedown defense increased by an unbelieveable margin.
