Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson put on a rousing war that delivered one of the most exciting and entertaining bouts in MMA history. The unanimous decision win by Jones was considered highly controversial in the sense that Gustafsson outlanded Jones in significant strikes by a count of 191-120.
Jones nearly finished his opponent in the fourth round, but was promptly sent to the hospital himself. Neither fighter could make the post-fight press conference, but Dana White discussed a rematch (but didn’t guranatee one). Gustafsson wants an immediate rematch.
We’ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, check out the fight highlights of last night’s knockdown drag-out:
