Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: Alexander Gustafsson loses a tough decision in an instant classic championship affair.
Cormier took the opening round on all three judges’ scorecards, and Gustafsson returned the favor in the second stanza.
It was all a mixed bag after that, which ultimately resulted in a (47-48,48-47, 49-46) split decision win for Cormier to retain his title.
The two 205-pounders each took home an extra $50,000 for “Fight of the Night” honors.
Jon Jones, what did you think of it???
UFC 192 took place Saturday inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
