Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones experienced his toughest fight to date when he took on Alexander Gustafsson during the main event of UFC 165. Jones and Gustafsson put on a ‘Fight of the Year’ candidate and maybe even punched a ticket into the ‘Greatest of All-time’ category. In the co-main event interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao blasted through challenger Eddie Wineland with a brutal spinning back-kick, and moved his unbeaten streak to 31 straight fights.

Really surprised that Jones won by unanimous decision.  I thought the fight could have went either way and would not have been shocked one bit if Gustafsson walked out of the octagon as champ

Yeah, the one judge that had it 49-46 (or 4-1) for Jones was almost as crazy at the  114-114 judge from the Mayweather fight. But either way that fight was awesome and cant wait for the rematch!
