    via doctor stoppage end of round 4. It's weird how everyone has forgotten this and instead solely credits JJ for coming closest to stopping the fight. I hope we get to see the rematch.

    JJ has had a couple of close calls with doctor stoppages now, fragility might be an ongoing issue for him. He seems to limp out of the cage a lot these days.

    Doctor stoppage can be one of the biggest bs wins. Couture-Belfort I if you don't want to believe me

    Well technically your right. By that logic though Sonnen almost beat Jones as well. Also Gus certainly did more damage than Jones did but in the cage Jones came much closer to finishing Jones than Gus did to finishing Jones. Gus was basically a training dummy after the spinning elbow and while all the credit in the world goes to Gus for somehow not getting finished Jones was very very close to pulling it off.

    Pretty much. For all the talk about how Gus was so dead at the end, he still had enough energy to effortlessly stand up after dragging Jones' carcass back to the cage from his butt, and he also outstruck Jones in the last round too, if you want to believe fightmetric (since Jones fans love using it to say their boy won.)

    Basically, if the fight had gone on longer, Jones' face would have fallen apart like Vitali Klitschko's face before Jones could finish Gus.

    Jones isn't going to be so lucky in a rematch. Alex is gonna knock him out in the rematch. He took his soul. There's a reason they're not going for an immediate rematch with him.

    Yup, JBJ is a bad, bad man! I thought he put Gus into a coma with that HELLBOW in the 4th...

    Yeah, he should fight Mousasi. Personally, I think Mousasi will light Gus up. It was very "convenient" how he got out of that fight.

    It's a bullshit story. Blown out of proportion . It was cleared up on ufc tonight . Doctor asked stitch about it. Stitch said it's fine and it was done. So no he didn't come close

    Doctor stoppages aren't as legit. They're usually BS due to TV friendliness. Gus was badly hurt.

    Also, I didn't hear anything about a possible stoppage. Just rumors.

    That is a completely facile point, TS. A doctor stoppage in this case would not be a legit win. If it were, people should go around sharpening fingernails.

    Funny how Gus fans screamed for fightmetric stats to prove that Gus won. And all of sudden fightmetric is corrupt/useless when it is obvious Jones won.
    And why instant rematch? He is

    Yeah, he ducked Mousasi in a main event in his hometown stupid.

    Gus would stop Mousasi.

    you should learn to appreciate what you are watching.

    that blow was enough to fracture a mans spine easily. thankfully gus was okay.

    you better believe he felt that. probably felt like a bowling ball dropped ten feet landing on the top of your head. and unlike a punch to the face, there is no way to roll with it.

    Gus fans are almost as bad as Chael fans. It's a shame though because Gus himself couldn't have been classier in defeat.
