Unfortunately for The Mauler, he came up short on the judges' scorecards in a very close decision. However, even in defeat, Gustafsson came away from the fight with his stock increased. The 26-year-old Swede may not have been awarded the rematch that many believe he deserved, but he's now demonstrated the kind of skill, determination and grit that won't likely see him stray far from another title shot.
Recently, FOX Sports 1's Ultimate Insider took a behind the scenes look at UFC 165 with a focus on Gustafsson, both before and after the fight. Watch On the Brink: Alexander Gustafsson above to get a better look at the man who almost dethroned Jon Jones.
