UFC 165 in Tweets: Pros score Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson, react to Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Jon Jones always wanted a dogfight. On Saturday night, he got it. The bout billed as a battle of reach turned into just that, as Jones and Alexander Gustafsson bloodied and bruised each other en route to gutting through five legendary rounds at UFC 165.

Jones ultimately walked away the victor, taking a unanimous decision via 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 scorecards to eclipse Tito Ortiz and officially become the most accomplished light heavyweight in UFC history. However the war of attrition was not without controversy, as many observers, including a slew of professional fighters, believed Gustafsson deserved to leave with the belt.
