Any fight that involves Jon Jones is a must see for MMA fans, and this Friday’s battle with Alexander Gustafsson is no exception. I think that Jones will go through a feeling out process, like he did with Lyoto Machida, and then eventually take Gustaffson down and finish him. Jon Jones by 4th round submission, rear-naked-choke.

This Saturday we are in for some great UFC action with UFC 165. Arguably the best pound-for-pound MMA fighter in the world, Jon Jones, will defend his title against Alexander Gustafsson. This is the first time Jones will be fighting a guy with as long a reach as him and it should be awesome. In addition, Renan Barao will put his interim bantamweight belt and the most impressive win streak in MMA on the line. I will stick to the televised card only and give my predictions. Here is how I think UFC 165 will go down.
