Jon Jones went into his UFC 165 scrap against Alexander Gustafsson virtually untested throughout his MMA career. His 10-fight winning streak included five title fight victories against former UFC champions.
None of those champs, though, gave Jones the kind of trouble that Gustafsson did on Saturday. The five-round war between the two was nearly stopped heading into the final round due to a massive cut above the champion's right eye. In the end, though, Jones' spinning elbows and leg kicks were enough to win a unanimous decision.
Both fighters went to the hospital immediately afterwards in lieu of attending the post-fight press conference, and it was there that this little bit of awesome came via Alexander Gustafsson's Facebook page.

Jones and Gustafsson each received a 60-day medical suspension, according to the Ontario Office of the Athletics Commissioner (OAC).
Jon Jones was suspended for a minimum of 60 days and needs to get a CT scan or MRI, and an x-ray prior to his return.
In the Octagon after the fight, Jones had nothing but praise for Gustafsson.
"Man, I'll tell you what, I've been asking for a dogfight for a long time, and I finally got that dogfight I've been looking for," Jones said.
