Every champion needs that moment where their recent victory is in question and their opponent has pulled every ounce of greatness out of them. That is what we got last Saturday when Jon Jones fought Alexander Gustafsson in possibly the best MMA fight I have ever seen. Gustafsson was the first fighter to make Jon Jones look human and made him look uncomfortable. Jones, to his credit, fought back after a rough first round in what was an amazing back and forth fight. This rivalry has the potential of be MMA’s Ali/Frazier and that is something we desperately need.
- All of the idiots that thought this fight was a robbery do not understand what qualifies something as a robbery. If a fight is close and the winner happens to not be who you want it to be does not make it a robbery.
- Renan Barao is in fact a monster – there is no reason that he should be interim champion and Dominick Cruz would be incredibly stupid to come back and fight him as his first fight.
- Brendan Schaub looked good against Matt Mitrione, though I still have a lot of questions about his chin.
- I hate Francis Carmont!
This highlight really doesn’t do the fight justice – YOU MUST FIND AND WATCH THIS!
