    There is no controversy in the Jones v. Gustafsson fight. I’ve included scorings from the 3 sherdog judges, bloodyelbow, mma junkie, mma fighting, mma weekly, and bjpenn.com below. Now, add that to the actual 3 judges and you have 11 different people that scored the fight for Jones. I couldn't find one online play by play that scored it for Gustaffson. Also, it is note worthy that of the 8 journalists listed below, all 8 gave Jones round 2, 4, and 5. Round 3 appears to be the only round that there’s a significant difference of opinion on. It was a close fight, a fight Jones probably would have lost if he hadn’t landed the brutal spinning back elbow in round 4, but it’s a clear victory for Jones none the less.

    Edit: A shertard pointed out that there are other MMA sites that scored the bout that I didn't list. I must admit, he is correct. SI.com, fighters.com, Yahoo, Gross, Breen, and mmafrenzy.com also scored the fight for… you guessed it, Jon Jones.

    And my personal favorite, www.MMAViking.com, which states on its homepage that its goal is "to create a unique, friendly, and entertaining website for promoting MMA in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Norway, and also Nordic fighters fighting around the world" scored the fight for...

    Jones vs. Bones better have some controversy. There should be an investigation if this happened.

    Jones vs Bones huh? Nailed it.

    Also no gives a fuck what the various sites score it, seeing as the poll at the top of the page clearly shows the people thought Gus won. Customer is king. Customers thought Gus won, we will get a rematch and see. I had it 3-2 Gus, but i can't be mad at the call because it was so close.

    Don't say there is no controversy because obvious there it, you wouldn't make this thread if there wasn't.

    There is no such thing as controversy in a close fight. Fans try and create it but there is none to create. The fight was great and close. So no controversy..

    Jones vs Bones was a good match, But Gus vs Mauler was better.

    TS, is that why 90% of pro MMA fighters (many in the UFC) gave it to Gus by split or a draw at best for Jones in order to keep his belt? Is that why more than 2:1 of the fans here on Sherdog and on other MMA forums scored it for Gus 3 rounds to 2? Even Dana White wasn't sure and stopped scoring it after the 3rd or 4th round. No controversy? Yeah right, nice try at brainwashing more intelligent people than you are. For the record, Sports Illustrated scored it a draw if I recall and MMA Now also scored it for Gus. Your own MMA Media outlets (which there's dozens of) have also failed you. Congrats. :cool:

    Possibly, but it's only because they convinced themselves of it, not because if they looked at the fight objectively.

    You have no metric for fan opinion or pro mma fighters. Please provide one.

    Dana said it was close, but Ratner had it for Jones.

    It was close, but the experts and particularly the media outlet had it for Jones. No controversy.
