Wow… when i heard one judge had it 49-46 for unanimous and STILL UFC LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… i have to say i was a little shocked. One because some blind judge had the fight 49-46 but that Jon Jones won the fight via unanimous decision. I can’t lie… this isn’t the first time i’ve felt like this and i kept hearing over and over from Joe Rogan that this was a close fight but Alexander was busting the champ up for the first 3 rounds. I’ve never seen Jon Jones frazzled like that before or punched like that EVER. Couple random thoughts…
I thought Alexander’s footwork looked good against the champ. I agreed when Big country tweeted:
Roy “Big Country” Nelson – I am impressed with @alexthemauler footwork, he is making @jonnybones work tonight
Official Michael Bisping – I’m sorry but that’s bullshit.
and agreed when our Swedish MMA Elite author and fighter Marcus Kowal wrote this:
@MarcusKowal – 49-46? That’s about as good judging as @MannyPacquiao vs Bradley. Congratulations to @JonnyBones, however, for showing his skills and heart. #UFC #UFC165 #MMA @MMAELITEBRAND
I just texed Marcus to get a video reaction from this fight and would love to hear his thoughts coming from a hometown perspective. I hope it’s angry.. hahahah.
Great fight regardless and great card. That Renan Barao kick didn’t look as brutal in the replay as it did live but it was still a nice finish. Can’t wait to see him fight Dominick Cruz one day. I must say… i’m really looking forward to Glover vs Bones though. I think glover takes it. i’m not bias at all. HAHAH.
