Certainly could've been more impressive but Gustaffson did what he needed to do.

Meanwhile Shogun still probably wont fight Glover.

Looks like Shogun learned how to deal with a long reach a little bit better. Just wasn't enough tonight though.

If you're not a Shogun fan you're not a fight fan.

Either Shogun power punch is gone or Gus has some serious chin.

You think that looked good for Shogun? He is still proving to be nothing but a shell of his former self.

Shogun is done as an elite fighter, he's just coming to brawl, which is fun but not gonna get him anywhere against the elite, the guy who fought Machida is gone, that's obvious.

Gus should have took advantage of his high guard with body kicks and when he had him against the cage he needed to tee off and not back away, either he's won so I guess it doesn't matter. Good chin on Gus too.

Shogun had his moments of brilliance, and Gustaf was very safe and smart

Gustafsson had a good showing, but far from impressive. Not convinced that he poses a challenge to Jones.

He needs another fight before challenging for the belt.
