Jon Jones Beat Alexander Gustafsson in an Instant Classic, Potential Fight of the Year at UFC 165


Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson engaged in a classic fight at UFC 165. Jones got the nod on the decision in an unbelievably close fight. Plenty of people will complain about the scoring between now and their certain rematch, but it could have gone either way. Gustafsson became the first person to take Jones down in the Octagon and stuff most of his takedown attempts. Jones was bloodied early while Gustafsson took multiple clean shots to the head. My guess for the rematch? Super Bowl weekend.
