Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson was extraordinarily compelling, and so grueling that neither fighter appeared at the post fight press conference. Instead, they went to the hospital. Both were released with no notable injuries.

However, as related by UFC president Dana White, the fight was a window into how far man can push.

"You could tell in the last round both of those guys were fighting on pure heart," said White. "Both of them. Gustafsson had never been five rounds before, and he got hurt bad with those elbows in the fourth round. He got hit with some stuff in the fifth round. Jon Jones was busted up and kept moving forward. He pleaded with the doctor not to stop it in the fifth.

"Not that I can talk to this either, but I believe this is one of those fights where both guys felt like they were going to die. You feel like, 'I don't know if I can continue. I don't know if I can keep doing this. I don't know if I can go one more round,' if they even knew what round it was."

"It was one of those kind of fights. It's why you've got to respect what happened here so much."

InteSaSerios - "but I believe this is one of those fights where both guys felt like they were going to die"

"Believe"

He didn't make a Statement which the Title of the thread suggests.

"both were released with no notable injuries"

So Jon's foot didn't fall off?

Amazing fight. The crybabies should really just go back to the WWF where they can be happy. Amazing fight, and they're crying and bitching about DW. Grow up!
