I thought that was a brutal scorecard. Gus won the first 3 rounds by actually landing effective strikes (ie punches to THE FACE) as opposed to leg kicks, not to mention effective grappling by stuffing every TD attempt. I can give Jones the last 2

I gave Gus rounds 1 and 3, Jones 2, 4 and 5.

Round 2 was the closest round of the fight, but I thought Jones got the better of the striking, and was the far more aggressive of the 2 despite being unable to land a takedown.

Not sure how a judge gave Jones 4 rounds though.

Either way great fight.

Gus should've won it 48-47.

A draw may have been slightly less controversial and fairer way to have Jones keep his belt.

Great fight though!

I thought Jones took three rounds. I'm buzzed though, so take it for what it's worth.

I thought Gus won the 1st three rounds. Round 2 was close though.

When its this close in a title fight. Give it back to the champ. You have to take that title. I want to see a rematch.

I'm way out there 49-46, 1,2,3,5 Gus. I thought Gustafsson's movement and ability to land on Bones was great, I wasn't convinced Jones leg kicks were very effective with Gus's ability to move for better of 4 rnds/imo

I actually had it scored a draw. I had round 1 and 3 to Gus, with round 4 and 5 to Jones. I thought round 2 was too close for me to call without second guessing myself and if I scored it correctly, so I had it 10-10. To me round 2 was going to be the deciding factor in the decision because I felt that the other 4 rounds were clear cut on who won, and round 2 you could make the argument either way. If you put a gun to my head and told me to pick a winner, I would lean toward Gus, but round 2 was too close for me to state definitively who won the round.

you judge the fight by what is in front of your eyes, not what you read on a paper

It's quite obvious if you watch the highlights; apparently, Jones landed the only significant strikes in the fight.
