The UFC 165 PPV event took place on Saturday night in Toronto, Canada, and provided us a fight for the ages when UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson engaged in an instant classic. The challenger Gustafsson was a +700 betting underdog to the champion but made it clear early that he was there to win on Saturday night. He shutdown the vaunted wrestling attack of Jones en route to landing significant strikes in the early rounds. However, Jones showed the heart of a champion to finish the final two rounds with authority to take the fight three rounds to two to set the record with six UFC light heavyweight title defenses.

Also, in the co-main event UFC interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao made quick work of Eddie Wineland to win via TKO in the second round. The UFC 165 full video highlights can be found below:
