WATCH: Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson 1 Full Fight Video

Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 was one of the best fights we have ever seen in the light heavyweight division. So with the two 205-pounders set to face off in a rematch years later in the main event of UFC 232, it is the perfect time to take a look back at the instant classic.
During its promotion for the upcoming UFC 232 event, the Ultimate Fighting Championship dropped the full fight video from Jones vs. Gustafsson 1 online.
It was the first time in Jon Jones’ young career that he had truly been tested. Ultimately, he was able to squeak out a unanimous decision victory (48–47, 48–47, 49–46) to retain his light heavyweight title. Since then, however, fans have been calling for a rematch with Gustafsson and they will finally get their wish.
UFC 232 takes place Saturday, December 29 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be the final UFC pay-per-view of the year. If Jones vs. Gustafsson 2 wasn’t enough to get you excited, the co-main event features one of the biggest women’s fights of all-time with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes moving up a division to take on women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg.
The main card also features Carlos Condit vs. Michael Chiesa at welterweight, a light heavyweight scrap between Ilir Latifi and Corey Anderson, and a featherweight bout between Chad Mendes and Alexander Volkanovski to kick off the main card. MMA legend BJ Penn will also be making his return during the preliminary bouts.
In the meantime, let’s build up to the event by looking back at the first meeting between the main event participants.
