    It is an unwritten rule that in fight sports that "winning by points" to take a championship should NEVER happen unless it was pure domination from start to finish. That is what you call a "champion's advantage". You got to dominate the champion or knock them the hell out if you want the belt.

    I love how pretty much everyone chooses to ignore JJ's steroid use. No wonder he was such a beast, he was juicing his whole career!

    Crazy every time I watch this fight I realize how much of a robbery it was, Gus out struck the hell out of Jones and literally stuffed almost every takedown.

    There are so many things that go into scoring a fight. Numbers are bs, but really the only way. Jones won this fight, no doubt. No doubt one of his toughest though, as Gus was and still is a stellar fighter. But I would say 2, 4 and 5 all went to Jones. 2 is a toss up. Ok. 4 and 5 for sure though. Damage in a fight is of the upmost value. Jon landed almost 10 head kicks in that last round, a flying knee and multiple elbows. Gus was running, exhausted, only trying to counter or jab with one failed spinning elbow and measly takedown attempt. Jon was in the better shape afterwards, he took a lot of damage no doubt, and even ate more volume, but the damage he dealt to Gus was far more than he took. Stronger finish, more damage dealt. That’s why he wins.

    @Not Creative But it wasn't close and Jon's dark-skin plays to his benefit and I don't mean to sound racist at all it's just true.. If Jones were a white person in this fight his face would have been beat down (it was beatdown you just couldn't tell some folks couldn't tell but I could) and Gustafson would have won this fight... I know how that sounds at first but Jon Jones face in this fight was trashed bro... Gustafson stuffed 10 of 11 takedowns I think and Gustafson got Jon down on the mat Gustafson took John down and that's the first time anyone had ever done that... Nobody has beat up on Jon Jones like that ever since besides Dominick Cruz and it wasn't nothing like this.. Gustafson 100% deserve the belt that night he won it fair and square he should have been the champion. when you have a performance like that and you beat someone at that high caliber like he did and you don't get credit for it let me tell you brother it messes with your career. Gustafson should have been on the top and he should have worked harder and harder to stay there but instead he got screwed and he felt like working hard did not pay off anymore because that's how you feel when stuff like this happens.. one fighter should have lost his belt and went the other way and the other one should have went to the top but it didn't happen like that..

    @IAM THEPAPI Yeah he probarly won 3-2 but Gus never won the last two rounds man. And the 2nd or 3rd round can be given to Jon because it was pretty close. I’m not sayin Jon won but it was very close you are delusional if you don’t think that.


    IAM THEPAPIPrije 7 dana

    @Not Creative took him down which nobody has ever done. Gustafson stuffed 10 out of 11 takedowns. He definitely won the first three I guess the last you were questionable but doesn't that mean Gustafson won theI guess the last you were questionable but doesn't that mean Gustafson won the fight? I understand you got to take the champion out to get the Bell you can't let it go to the decision but that's BS Gustafson won the belt. Jon knew it.

    @Not Creative nothing in this fight was clearly John... He got battered and beaten for five rounds...

    Gustafsson landed more blows and danced around more, but Jon s strikes did more damage, if you watch without the sound of the crowd and the exaggerating commentary, by the last two rounds jones is starting to beat the challenger down. Those head kicks and those leg kicks were seriously starting to take a toll on Gustafsson

    I have always seen people vehemently arguing that Jon's victory was a daylight robbery. But I think it's more to do with people either wishing for Gustafsson's victory or to just watch Jon go down. In my opinion Jon had round 2, 4, 5 while Gus had round 1. Round 3 was too close for me to call with surety. So 48-47 in favour of Jon was reasonable, and I can even understand why one judge gave 49-46, because it was Jon who kept the pressure up throughout the fight.

    @SteelersNation 1 I had round 1 for Gustafsson because of the takedown and that though Jon out struck Gus, it wasn't significant enough to nullify Alex's strikes+takedown.
