Poster makes it look like Alexander is punching Jones in the crotch.

 

For a show with two title fights, I'm surprised at the lack of talk about it online.

Lack of a quality marketing campaign for Gustafsson. You would think he would get more than the Gan McGee treatment no matter how small his chances were.

That poster is horrible, just like the promos, just like the whole build up.

Our new leader Elsalva has failed us!  This would have never happened under sprewell!

Live blogs are saying that Gustafsson may eke out a split decision.  Is it really that close? 

 

EDIT: Nope,  My homie just tweeted that Jones won by unanimous decision.  Crowd was irate at The Tilted Kilt.  Gustaffsson won hearts and minds in Rounds 1-4.

This is one of the best fights I've ever seen. Wonderful effort by both men. Gustafsson's combinations and uppercuts vs. Jones' myriad of kicks. Gustafsson withstood all of those damn headkicks.

4 rounds for Jones is the biggest pile... not a chance.  48-47 for Gustaffson was the only result that made sense to me at all.

Regardless, what a war!  Best title fight ever was the right call.

Great great fight. I think the decision is bullshit. I expected Gustaffson to win because of those first three rounds.

Yeah it was. Hard to tell who was going to get the decision until one of the judges scored it 49-46 since it was unlikely anyone was giving Gustafsson either of the last 2 rounds.

49-46 is really weird but not totally unexpected. Fuck Glover Teixeira, we need a rematch.

He was working on instincts in the last round. When he put his hand on his hips with 2 to go, I thought it was over but he just kept going.

 

Jones was pretty shook during that interview. Legitimately surprised that Gustafsson didn't go down.

Only caught the main but the result was terrible. There is no way Jones should have won a unanimous decision, let alone a 49-46 card. The scoring was absurd to me and I like Jones.

 

An amazing fight which I thought Gus survived through to win, but I guess having Nike and Gatorade as sponsors makes you a face of the UFC so losing a decision is like NBA stars getting called for traveling, it doesn't happen.

More people could have saw this and been super pumped for the rematch if they didn't market Gustafsson like he was Gan McGee. But hey, I don't make the decisions.

I'm surprised they didn't have Al Snow and the JOB Squad crew accompany him to cageside.
