    It is a controversial decision, and I think Gus just did more to win overall.

    Most importantly he shattered the mystique of Jon or aura of invincibility around him.

    Just became a fan of Alex - especially after how humble and "its not about me" he was after the fight compared to "warrior spirit" of Jones.

    I hope the not quite human thing will backfire now, oh the irony.

    I was really shocked that he couldn't take Gus down, because Jones has man handled guys with far better wrestling credentials. It's certainly possible that Jones had some lingering injury going into the fight, but if not then that has to be the greatest jump in take down defense ever on Gus' part.

    If Jones landed a takedown in the first two rounds I think the fight would have looked much different.

    Agree and how will Bones talk himself out of this one? I think he started believing his own hype a tad too much. I'm sure Glover, Davis and Cornier are salivating at their respective turns

    I think he couldn't take him down because of Alex's strength. Never realized how strong the guy is till tonight.
