UFC Daniel Cormier

Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: Alexander Gustafsson loses a tough decision in an instant classic championship affair.

Instead of dropping a unanimous decision to then-champ Jon Jones, like he did at UFC 165 in 2013, Gustafsson fell just short of upsetting now-champ Daniel Cormier (pictured) on Saturday at UFC 192.

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.
