    Round 1: Gustavson with better striking Round 2: Jones was more active and landed some nice kicks Round 3: even round (Gustavson connected with punches and Jones with some nice kicks) Round 4: Jones dominated the end of the round und hurt Gustavson Round 5: Jones scored witn big elbows and head kicks und got takedown Overall Jones dominated the centre of the cage and was going after him while Gustavson was rotating away from him. I can't understand people who gave that fight to Gustavson.

    5:00 Fucking pathetic. You can see Jones pissed at his audacity when he just got taken down. Then he resorts to intentionally poking him in the eye because he's dominating him so far. I wish there were harsher penalties for this pathetic bullshit. Especially for Jon considering he's _notorious_ for eye pokes

    First time watching this fight because someone spoiled the outcome before i got a chance to see it. I would say Gus won the fight. Jones really picked it up on the championship rounds and maybe a draw on one of the first three. Gus in my eyes won this fight.

    Why the fuck was Big John standing behind the fighters' backs so much too? He should be parallel to them, not looking at one of their backs. He even gets in the way at a few points.

    Right? 1 person is *notorious* for eye pokes. It's no secret. Gus takes Jon down and Jon is so pissed he has to start pulling out the eye pokes _immediately_ afterwards. With the situation that just happened that should be blatant cheating. You can tell in Jon's body language even. It's frustrating that someone can be such a grown up freaking brat and still allowed to win

    I’m confused how people claim Jones lost this fight. The fairest to do was give them a draw cos I don’t think Gus was clearly beaten either but the if you know about mma you know the championship rounds are key and Jones dominated those two. The first three rounds I didn’t have Jones beaten either. Those first three rounds could have gone to either of them. Come on guys. Y’all are so desperate to see Jones lose.

    Gustafson won this fight. He came in with a plan. It's a fucking shame watching the second one knowing he had to knock jones out cus he'd never get the decision, way more aggressive and less methodical and he paid for it. But he knew he couldn't slow play it or he'd get jipped again...

    Fight honestly could have gone either way I gave rounds 4 and 5 to Jon Jones I think Alexander won round 1 2 and 3 but they were really close. Jon had Alexander hurt bad in round 4 and 5. But whatever judge scored is 49-46 needs to go to prison

    Jon won 4-1. It was harder than usual but Jon still dominated. Gus had great take-down defense but he was taking kicks to the head all night. His pushes were also floppy, no pop to them.

    Joe Rogan: "he might have to take Gustafsson out" Judge: Has Jones up 3-1... Even tough I'm swedish I don't call this a complete robbery (Reyes got totally robbed tough) It was very very close. But having Jones winning 4 rounds (one of the judged had), how? That's insane.
