Jones vs. Gustafsson final scorecard
The 5-round war between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson was one of the most thrilling fights in UFC history. And by most observers' accounts, the closest as well. The final scorecard from Toronto, however, tells a different story.
In his UFC 165 postfight interview with UFC On FOX's Ariel Helwani, UFC President Dana White admitted he was too caught up in the drama to keep track of the scoring. But the UFC fighters who had the night off, however, saw things very clearly. Here are a few of the best fighter tweets around the Jones vs. Gustafsson main event.

To recap: I clearly had Gustafsson for rnd 1 & 2. Had Jones winning 3, 4 & 5. In close rnds, u have to assume rnds will go to champ. #ufc165— Kenny Florian (@kennyflorian) September 22, 2013

Guys just remembering that in a close decision the champion keeps the belt because the challenger must have a clear victory to win the fight— Junior Dos Santos (@junior_cigano) September 22, 2013
