This is not a topic about who should have or shouldn't have won Gus/Jones. However, after the fight, what I noticed from my group of friends, from people's Facebook statuses, and other fighter's Tweets is that they've asserted that Gus didn't win the fight not because he lost more rounds, but because Jones is the Champion, and as such has the Championship advantage to gain an edge in rounds. What sense does this make? And why is this always brought up in combat sports? Whether it's boxing, kickboxing, or MMA, viewers are always willing to score decisions in favor of the Champion due to some mythical championship advantage. Why? I mean, you don't see the NFL giving the Baltimore Ravens an automatic 7 pts at the beginning of each game. The Miami Heat won't begin each game this season with points already on the board. So why is it that people will firmly argue that a champion needs to be finished to lose? If anything, shouldn't it be the other way around? As a Champion, you should show why you're where you're at by shutting down challengers. To me, a Champion needing to prove why he's a Champion makes a hell of a lot more sense than a fighter having to prove why he's a challenger.
