Sweden's Alexander Gustafsson took on Jon "Bones" Jones tonight in a UFC light heavyweight title bout. Jones has never been beaten in the ring/octagon (he lost one match when he was DQ'd) and is probably MMA's reigning overall badass.
Gustafsson actually did very well against Jones, becoming the first fighter ever to take him to the mat.
The bout went a full five rounds before Jones won a narrow (though unanimous) decision.
Jones was able to pull out the victory despite Gustafsson's control of the first three rounds by, in layman's terms, finishing the fight by repeatedly whomping Gustafsson in the face really hard. Like this.
And this. Good God.
My face hurts from watching these.
After the fight, Gustafsson's face told a story written in a language of bruises and pain.
