The majority of pro MMA fighters also scored it for Gustafsson, many were outraged with the decision. Chael also believes that Gustafsson beat Jones and Jones and Chael have been friends since their stint on TUF. Sherdog's polls also had Gustafsson winning.

Media scores != Pro fighter scores / Judge's scoring (clearly). It's not like they're all on the same page all the time. BTW, Gustafsson 1,2,3 and the first 80% of round 4. Jones potentially stole round 4 within the last 40 seconds and won round 5. Round 2 could've gone either way but many still had Gustafsson taking it or at worst a draw.
The problem is you immediately have to throw out any sherdog poll pretty much any poll in general. I think it's clear as day that people hate Jones and just want to see him lose anyway possible. People are way to biased in a decision involving Jones espicially a close one. The MMA media got it right and so did the judges. I don't care about the fighters because they just don't know the scoring system. I heard Jeremy Stephens say GSP lost and then he said based on the scoring system and mentioned "Damage" as a criteria. Damage is not included in the scoring system but he didn't know that and he's a fighter.

You score that fight as whole and Jones clearly wins it. Only one fighter had their hands down resting in that fight, only one fighter was seriously hurt running from strikes. That was a fight and Jones won it the same way Hendricks beat GSP regardless of scroing system.

Gus, however, got to him mentally from the hits and damage.

It was obvious immediately after the fight and later when he ducked him.

I lost interest in Sherdog when the Ronda Spam started and took over this board.

Glover fight will probably be close too. Then it will be seen as universal.
Belfort fought at LHW (and was the champion technically) before his drop to MW and has fought as high as HW so yeah w/e.
