Striking isn't only punches to the head. Jones outstruck Gus all around with kicks, elbows, and punches combined. First 3 rounds were very close but rounds 4 and 5 were definitively Jones. 48-47 Jon Jones was the right call.

R1: 10-10
R2: 10-9 Jones
R3: 10-9 Gustaffson
R4: 10-9 Jones
R5: 10-9 Jones

49-47 Jones

That was my scoring. That being said, I truly believe Alex "won the war" obviously.

Events Attended:

2007 - UFC 77
2010 - Bellator 23
2011 - Strikeforce: Feijao/Henderson
2011 - Strikeforce: HWGP Semi-Finals
2012 - Strikeforce: Rousey/Tate

Most fighters say Gustafsson won.
All media outlets say Jones won.
50% of Sherdog says Jones won, 50% think Gutafsson won.
This is endless discussion.

Yeah to all the people saying "The elbow in the 4th won it" do you honestly forget or just chose to not remember the fact that there was 45 seconds left in that round after the elbow and Jones did more in that 45 seconds than either guy did the whole fight?

not a Jones fan at all, but I scored that fight 48-47 Jones from the first time I watched it.

Because he was competitive and people hate bones is why people say Gus won

Gus rightfully lost that round, but he would have won it, and thereby the fight, had that shot not landed.

THAT is where the controversy comes from.
just one strike takes a round?

i fear he'll pull the stiff one eye on me.
