    Thanks! Can update with some interesting cliffs soon.


    - Expected more out of Jones' takedowns. Felt Jones couldn't find his range and timing to successfully land takedowns. Had no problems at all defending them, required no real effort.
    - Didn't think it was the height and reach that made the match up so even. They both neutralized eachother's physical advantages so that the fight came down to who had the sharpest skills.
    - Felt he had control of the fight until the spinning elbow landed in the fourth. Threw a lazy jab and Jones timed it with a nice elbow and he messed up while trying to avoid it. Saw 'three Jones, planets and stars' when it landed and didn't recover until the fight was over. Still saw three Jones in the fifth round and couldn't get any offense going since he only focused on recovering.
    - Has not watched the fight since he's the sorest loser on earth and gets very emotional to the point of tears while watching it. Says it "s

    Short excerpt : Gus says he that Jones definitely won the 5th round, but that Jones won 1 minute in 4th round and the other 4 was his. He's sure that he won the fight and rightly so.

    He says that he thought Jones takedowns would be harder to defend, he found them much easier and less taxing to defend then he had thought.

    The takedown was not planned, he just saw an opening and shot for it, he is confident in his wrestling.

    He says the elbow really hurt him, he saw stars and three Jon Jones :) He blames his lazy jab for getting caught. Also a high kick in the second stunned him.

    He has still not seen the fight, he thought he lost the fight in the last minute of the 4:th and 5:th and does not want to see that.

    He also felt that if this would have been a normal fight and not for the belt, he would have won. He was prepared for the loss, he felt he did not really do enough. His words, the loss " Sucked balls".

    He does not have any other LHW he would like to fight before Jones, he just wants that rematch :) He will prepared to take the spot if Glover or Jones gets injured.

    No truth in the rumours of breaking up with alliance, just media hype gone bad.

    There will not be a fight against Phil Davis, he does not want this fight, UFC has not pushed that fight, no plans for it. IF UFC wants it, they will fight but they will not seek this fight.

    He wants to fight 3-4 times a year if possible.

    He has no info regarding the difference between fightmetric stats before and after the decision, reducing significant strikes of Gus with 70 strikes.

    He felt the straight oblique kicks to the knees were useless, they did not hurt him and did nothing to his mobility, he thinks the technique is ugly and only makes opponents worried of getting injured.

    Alleater of music, reggae, hiphop, rock and so on. Avicci is being played a lot right now.

    When asked what he would different if he got a rematch he said "everything"

    230 kg deadlift, 150 kg kneelift(?), 110 kg benchpress as best results.

    cliffs:

    * Jon Jones fought as he thought he would
    * he thought they neutralized each others advantages and it came down to who's got the best skill/technique
    *the spinning elbow hurt him bad, saw double/triple, but he wasn't out of it completely
    *he hasn't watched the match afterwards in it's entirety because he feels the loss is painful
    * only one of the high kicks landed but only with the foot
    *he feels that he got a lot of support from the audience, a lot of swedish flags
    *he was still wobbly in the fifth from the elbow
    *he wanted to recover from the elbow and start picking up points again but rounds go very fast when in a match
    *when the decision came he thought he had had the chance to win but he also felt he didn't do enough
    *he took the loss hard
    *regarding how his stock has risen since the match he feels it's good some good came of the loss, he feels his in a good spot
    *he says team is the key to his success

    Then they started talking about Alex's role in Swedish martial arts popularity and making it more mainstream and he gets kind of awkward :icon_lol:

    *he says he don't know why he doesn't get an immediate rematch but he knows he will face Jones soon enough
    *The other guy (some mma reporter for a crap newspaper) says Jones is not scared but Jackson and his team is
    *He will not fight Phil Davis, they are friends, training buddies, and he don't want to fight his friends
    *they are going to break down the jones match and work on what he did wrong
    *he wants to fight more, he says that you can't fight forever and that he wants to get as much out of this time in his life as he can
    *He will not go harder for the KO in the next match, he will continue to go for the win
    *regarding significant strikes changing under the match and after the match he knows nothing about it and haven't heard and explanation
    * Jon Jones kicks to the knee didn't do any damage
    *He likes all kind of music, right now it's mostly aviciis new album
    *Next time he will be so dominant finishing won't be necessary
    *Deadlift - 230-235kg squat - 150 kg bench - 110 kg

    They asked Alex how the fight went and he says everything was going according to their gameplan, and that he was a little surprised at how easily he was defending the takedowns from Jones, he'd expected it to be a bit more difficult. Also says Jones couldn't find his timing and reach.

    Then they asked about reach and height with regard to takedowns and Alex said that wasn't an issue because they cancelled each other out, and it came down to who was more skilled and had done their homework.

    They talk about how Jon is a very emotional fighter, that when everything is going his way he gets creative with his strike, but when Alex took him down they could almost see the doubt on him because he wasn't able to take Alex down and couldn't really land anything. The only thing they thought Jones was successful with was the elbows, leg kicks and a high left kick. Alex says the leg kicks weren't bothering him and the only one left high kick landed flush, the rest he blocked with his right hand.

    Alex says he got sloppy in the 4th with his striking and the elbow really hurt him, says he saw 3 Jones's in the ring. He also said he felt he was winning every round up until the final minute of the 4th when Jones landed the elbow.

    That's the first 10 minutes of the video...
