I don’t often post mixed martial arts fights, but when i do…it’s the greatest UFC title fight of all time. Well that’s what people in the know are calling it anyway. The UFC 165 light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Alex Gustafsson is being labelled the greatest fight in MMA history by fans and with good reason. It went the full 5 rounds and featured brutal head kicks, elbows, knees and also the first time Jones was taken to the ground by an opponent in his UFC career. Both fighters were hospitalized after the battle.
Here’s some of the highlights.
Jones ended up retaining his title, but damn it was so close.
“Both Jon Jones and Alex Gustafsson were hospitalised after their epic five-round battle in which the American retained the UFC light heavyweight title for the sixth time, in what may be called, without exaggeration, possibly the greatest mixed martial arts title fight of all time. ” [Telegraph]
Taught them everything they know.
