30-26?!

Glad the judges have figured out that they CAN score a round 10-8

hopefully in the next 5 years they can figure out how to do it right

I like Gustaffson, he's a big badass blonde guy that hurts people.

I'd just like to see him get a legit top 5 fighter in his prime before the UFC hype shit starts.


Give him Rashad.

The next step in the evolution of mma is elite conditioning and it was shown tonight. These new lions don't get tired and that was the difference on these two fights

Shogun is no longer that Shogun. He fights with heart only. That being said, Gus has nothing against Jones and he would be tooled by Anderson, IMO.

Gustaf vs. the winner of Machida vs. Henderson. If we're looking for the true contender, that ought to be the fight.

I agree, do you believe he would beat Rashad tho? I am not really sure about it tbh.

Gustaffson has always had a sturdy chin....

Watch his fights with Te-Huna and Hamman.

He needs another fight before challenging for the belt.
He fought very safe and smart, you see his face not a mark on him. He won every round and Shogun had a lot of good tricks up his sleeve and Alexander avoided them all.

At this point...

1. Jones
2. Evans
3. Henderson
4. Gustaf
5. Machida
6. Rua
7. Davis

Gus has yet to impress me inside the cage.
He wont be able to bounce around like that against Jones, he will get taken down and manhandled.
