Jones.. gustafson is no where near as fast, agile, or explosive . Although i wouldnt shed a tear if he caught jones on the chin and dropped him early... but jones has told him hes taking him down..which in jones-speak means hes going to stand and slam elbows into your face to prove a point.
Not going to be a good fan fight to watch...

I'm hoping Gusty puts up a good fight. He doesn't look as fluid as Jones but he can throw down. I really liked Jones when he first came on the scene but not as much now, wouldn't hate it if he lost.

I won't say he doesn't have a chance but Jones will be to much for him right now. Curious to see how Jones handles someone closer to his size in regards to frame and reach.

I think everybody is putting too much stock into the height deal, jones still have about a 5 1/2" reach advantage over gus. I want gus to win. I'm in that same boat of those that used to like jones when he first showed up but after the whole rashad evans thing don't like him as much anymore. he'll probably win though, gus doesn't have the greatest chin, so all this ko talk may end up getting him ko'd himself

Jones had to be helped out of the cage..his face looks like complete hamburger...only thing he had the entire fight was kicks that were checked and a couple elbows..
Jones lost that fight.

Gustafson landed more significant strikes, more strikes, stuffed more takedowns, did more damage and still lost I guess the old saying you have REALLY defeat the champion to win means knock him out... I could have seen a draw but not the victory they gave Jones...

Either way that was a great fight for sure.....

I saw it going either way. Rd 1 - toss-up, Rd 2 - Gus, Rd 3 - Gus, Rd 4 - Jones, Rd 5 - Jones. I believe Gus should have won the fight with his hand strikes and takedown defense however he did get caught in the later rounds and ate a lot of kicks. Jones definitely got put to the test.

I say rd1 even ,rd2 Alex ,rd3 Alex ,rd4 almost a 10-8 rd for Jones and rd5 jones. I would've scored it a Draw.
I think 2 judges had it even and one 2 points for Jones. It happens and in a championship fight when the champ holds the center of the ring and the challenger runs around alot it can get screwed. Even though Alex busted Jones up and landed alot of significant strikes he did get taken down and hit back alot in the 4th round.

Interesting to note. John Jones went to the hospital on a stretcher and Gustafson walked away upright.

What an awesome fight it was! I agree with KingsX, would've scored it a draw; but I can see how it maybe should have gone to Gus.
