Jon Jones vs Alex Gustafsson 1: Watch the full fight ahead of the rematch at UFC 232 now scheduled for Los Angeles

Without exaggerating, the first fight between Jon Jones and Alex Gustafsson is one of the greatest in UFC history.

In 2013, at UFC 165, Jones was defending his light heavyweight title, which he did, but only after an epic five-round war.

For 25 minutes, the two men traded punches and kicks, elbows and knees.

The two fought one hell of a fight back in 2013, which Jones won

Gustafsson became the first man to take Jones down to the ground in 13 mixed martial arts fights, but in the end the judges in Toronto returned a unanimous verdict 48-47, 48-47 and 49-46, with both earning a £50,000 bonus when their battle was awarded Fight of the Night.

And ahead of the rematch at UFC 232, which has been moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, talkSPORT.com looks at the first bruising encounter, which put both men in hospital.
