I wonder if I am the only one who really, really wanted Gus to win, yet still thought that Jones won

Stop. 2,4,5 Jones won, the end.

No. He didn't. But you guys stomped your feet loud enough and Dana White went along with the temper tantrums thrown by the Jones haters. Even though he lost on the scorecards of all the judges, on the scorecards of every reputable neutral site scoring that fight independently, lost statistically based on independently collected metrics, was losing badly at the end of the fight, was the only guy close to being finished, and was the only guy who appeared mentally defeated when that fight was over, Gus still got to jump back to the front of the contender line after a single win against a non-top 10 guy.

It worked! The UFC caved, and booked a quick rematch with nothing in between to warrant another title shot. Gus has received the gift "do over" based solely on the complaints of people who believe he somehow deserved the win the first time around.

Yet for some reason, here we are again. Instead of being happy about getting the rematch you had wanted and being excited about that, the pointless bitching continues on, the horse keeps getting pulverized... claiming that's not what you mean to do doesn't change that you are.

Exactly.

I love Gus and I am not a Jones fan, but enough of this.

I like you I assume (hope) that you're joking and if you are you're a pretty funny dude

I wanted to Lyoto to beat Shogun but that still didn't cloud the fact that Shogun won that fight.

I would've been more disappointed if Gus got the nod over Jones even though I wanted him to win.

I really wanted Rampage to beat Forest but he didn't.

I'm glad the judges didn't fuck up the GSP vs Hendricks fight also. It was a close fight but Hendricks let it slip away.
