UFC 165 poll results: Gustafsson beat Jones, but only just
"Did Jon Jones do enough to defeat Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165?", with the only two options available being "yes" and "no".
At the time of writing this article (8am Tuesday, AEST), 754 votes had been cast, with 47 percent saying that Jones should have retained the title (353 votes), combared with 53 percent (401 votes) indicating that Gustafsson should have taken home the belt.
The results are somewhat surprising considering that there hasn't been a lot of hoo-ha over the decision, with the result far from being labelled "controversial" by fans abroad.
According to a general consensus of fans and fighters who commented on the result post fight (qualitative data this time), Gustafsson sealed the first round with effective striking and Jones rallied late to lock up rounds four and five - but rounds two and three are the ones that have the MMA community divided.
In those rounds, Gustafsson appeared to land more punches to the face of Jones and even a few more takedowns (don't pretend like that wasn't a huge surprise) but champion connected with more kicks and elbows which were probably the more powerful strikes.
So how did you have it? Have your say over on our Facebook page, or undermine this very article but entering the poll above and add weight to the argument behind either Jon Jones or Alexander Gustafsson as the deserved winner.
