With UFC 232 drawing ever-closer, the UFC have uploaded the first meeting between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson for your viewing pleasure.
Nowadays, we are all aware of exactly how talented Alexander ‘The Mauler’ Gustafsson actually is but when he was scheduled to face the dominant force that sat atop the 205lb division at the time, many had written him off.
And it was understandable.
The champion Jon Jones had been as impressive as any fighter we had ever witnessed inside the octagon but in Gustafsson, for the first time, he would be coming up against an athlete who matched his physical attributes.
The resulting fight was one of the greatest fights in the history of the sport.
As we move closer to seeing them run it back in the UFC 232 headliner, relive the five-round war that saw the champ Jones pushed to his limits – courtesy of the official YouTube account of the UFC.
