UFC 165 gave us one of the greatest light heavyweight title fights in History. Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson put on an amazing battle in Toronto, with Jones winning a unanimous decision after a back-and-forth, hard fought war.
–This week on The MMA Word we recap UFC 165 with Chris Leslie of MMAFrenzy.com. We take a look at the instant classic that was Jones vs Gustafsson, and the rest of the main card, which saw Renan Barao finish Eddie Wineland with a devastating spinning back kick to the face, along with Matt Mitrione getting put to sleep by Brendan Shaub in a d’arce choke, a forgettable fight between Carmont and Phillippou, and a fun scrap between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Pat Healy.
–The week in fight announcements: Pettis vs Thomson, Barnett vs Browne, Johnson vs Benavidez 2, Mendes vs Lentz, Condit vs Brown, and a whole lot of other great fights announced this week make their way into ‘MMA Headlines’.
–The UFC has a fairly busy month of fights set for October, so I run down some fights to watch in the flyweight, and women’s bantamweight divisions.
