From Gustafsson's instagram - Didnt go my way last nite but ill be back stronger thats a promise!!! Wanna thanks all my fans u r amazing!!! Had a great time in Toronto.... We haven't seen a technical slobber knocker like the one we saw last night with so much on the line in octagon since....ever. Although it was Jones who left the cage retaining his title both of these men fought like champions, they are wearing it all over their face in this photo. It was a fight that had fans hearts pounding from the opening bell all the way up until Bruce Buffer read the decision, and into the night. Not only did Jones and Gustafsson both win last night, the sport of MMA itself won, and won big. An immediate rematch must be made with the full works; a three part Primetime series, a press stop in Sweden and New York for both men, Round 5 special edition action figures, etc... etc. It's photos like these that remind us that this is just a sport, and these two men know full well that together they created something very special last night in Toronto. It's a professional relationship built on punching and kicking each other in the face, and it's one that we'll see grow even stronger inside of the cage through the years. Also of note, Gustafsson is a dream client for Bad Boy. I mean the guy is even decked out in his gear coming out of the emergency room. Gotta love it.

Jon Jones is a specimen, and an incredible martial artist, but he needs some PR work. The latest strange quote from the oft-quoted Jon Jones is him calling his haters the dumbest people ever, which is pretty narrow-minded, but maybe now he will get haters because he calls his haters dumb? It’s cyclical, this world.
Jones told MMAJunkie’s John Morgan.
