) and GS ****in' P! But I guess he's just a regional star, since everybody knows that only the Swedish play video games, right?
I think you're a good poster, but you're really reaching here. It was a very close fight which could've gone either way. It's not only Jones haters who think Gus got the better of the champ in that fight. A rematch is very warranted.
All that said, I'm fine with either fight (IMO both guys will beat the champion), but seriously **** you Jones for always trying to play the game and choosing who you're going to fight next! Do the right thing, shut the **** up and fight whoever they tell you to!
I believe it goes hand-in-hand; his hardcore followers in Sweden voted him in. It is like in basketball and baseball (on a grander scale), undeserving players from China and Japan would get voted into the all-star game all the time due to people supporting their countryman.
A lot of people scored the fight with their heart. Pretty much all media outlets had it for Bones. I know it is far from the "end all be all", but I think people were taking surprises and preferences into who they think won. A close fight does not merit a rematch. Since they fought, Bones beat Glover in a PPV main event while Gus beat a no-namer on Fight Pass. That does not exactly stack up. Cormier scares me more and I hate him, but I would way rather Bones/Cormier.
