Proof Alexander Gustafsson beat Jon Jones?

Dear Ug'ers,

There has been talk of bad judges and bad judging criteria FOR YEARS in MMA, but I haven't seen ANY significant improvements. Granted Jon Jones had his good offensive moments in the fight, it was clear Alexander did MORE DAMAGE to Jones.

So, after watching Alexander Gustafsson lay a beating on Jon Jones, I want to ask all your opinions on this:

How should a fight be scored or determine a winner when one fighter GOES TO THE HOSPITAL from RECEIVING MORE DAMAGE from his opponent?

well anyone with major scar tissue and opens up easily would be at a disadvantage by your 'more damage' criteria.

If you hit a guy with 100 light jabs causing only minor swelling and your opponent only hits you once but breaks your orbital bone, you win.

That 1/2 lb, three cheese buffalo burger I just ate might be putting me in some sort of grease stupor, but i think damage isn't really that reliable an indicator of who won

"Granted Jon Jones had his good offensive moments in the fight, it was clear Alexander did MORE DAMAGE to Jones."

And yet Gus was the one who was almost finished, and Gus was the guy who looked like he was going to fall over in the cage in the 5th.

"How should a fight be scored or determine a winner when one fighter GOES TO THE HOSPITAL from RECEIVING MORE DAMAGE from his opponent? "

Obviously no decision should be announced in any fight until the following day once the doctor's diagnoses are in. They should just fight, then go back to the locker room, the fans all go home, and then we all watch a live feed on the internet the next day where they read the doctor's reports and announce a winner.

This would discourage fighters from seeking medical treatment. Great idea. Phone Post 3.0

they both got beat up, fin.

gokudamus stole my name iv,

it seemed obvious to me Gustafsson was tired from HITTING Jon Jones and it was his 1st 5 round fight in the UFC.

Btw, does anyone know how to post the picture linked in my 1st post? It shows the damage of both fighters.

Tired is tired, and I'm sure that Jones's left shin was killing him, but only because Gustaffson was eating high kicks like they were candy.

Scoring fights will ALWAYS be subjective, and the fact of the matter is that the 3rd round was a very hard round to score. That round could have gone to either of them.

That being said, the judge that scored the fight 49-46 was an idiot. There is no way in hell that Jones won 4 rounds and Gus only won 1.

pride rules was the best imo

Did you get the burger at a restaurant? If so which one? I need some bison meat in a burger... Phone Post 3.0

Is it just me or Jones looks like a busted up Apollo Creed in that pic???

And what a great pic.  Both guys are good sports, but my heart belongs to Gustafson!

i sort of made this argument after the bj penn / gsp fight when bj penn looked fine and gsp looked like he got hit by a truck in a hospital gurney.

i forgot his exact words, but it made me realize i was wrong, my argument was silly.

so i have to say that although a telling picture (in the sense that they both were involved in a war), it doesn't reflect whom won or lost the fight.

I think Gus won. But, kinda looks like they're both in the hospital. Phone Post

How would you score a body shot?

I would rather get a bruise on my face than a bruise on my liver (not sure if that is possible just making a point).

Tank Abbott agrees and never really lost going by this criteria.

Should say fight winner on the left and UG winner on the right.

I won't even respond to the idiotic subject of this thread.. I just want to know why the fuck Jones is in restraints. The guy is buckled down.
