|TORONTO -- A bloody Jon (Bones) Jones defended his light-heavyweight title but was pushed to the limit by a hard-charging Alexander (The Mauler) Gustafsson before winning a memorable five-round decision at UFC 165 on Saturday night. Malachi Richardson Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-. It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. And it will likely be remembered as one of the best title fights in UFC history. "Who doesnt want a rematch," said UFC president Dana White. Jones and Gustafsson both earned US$50,000 bonuses for the fight of the night. Still, White refused to say a rematch would be next. Gustafsson (15- made the champion look human, cutting him and taking him down for the first time in his UFC career. As he promised, the Swedes hands were faster. It wasnt until the end of the fourth round that a bloody Jones finally did damage, setting the stage for a dramatic fifth. Both men were bleeding. Jones took Gustafsson down but the Swede fought his way back to his feet. Gustafsson looked exhausted and Jones threw everything at him, mixing elbows and kicks. Both fighters were taken to hospital after the main event. "Thank you for everyone support," Jones tweeted after the fight. "I felt a little off my game tonight but I learned alot about myself and I promise to come back better." In the co-main event at the Air Canada Centre, interim bantamweight title-holder Renan Barao stopped former WEC champion Eddie Wineland in spectacular fashion, finishing him with a spinning back kick to the face in the second round. Gustafsson, wearing trunks in the blue-and-yellow colours of Sweden, walked in to Aviciis "Wake Me Up." The champion, wearing a "Not Quite Human" T-shirt, followed to the sounds of "Coming Home" by Diddy and Dirty Money as the noise level escalated in the arena. At six foot five, the Swede had a one-inch height advantage on Jones. The champ still had a reach advantage thanks to his UFC-leading 84.5-inch wingspan, but it was only a three-inch edge this time. Gustafsson cooly stuffed an early takedown and came at Jones, who fought back with kicks. The Swede cut the champion at the right eye midway through the first round. And with one minute left, he took Jones down for the first time in the champions UFC career. Jones just missed with a spinning elbow in a first round that was good for Gustafsson. The Swede tripped Jones as he attempted a kick early in the second, only to have the champion get back up and charge at him. Jones stalked Gustafsson, who stuffed another takedown. The crowd roared as the round ended. Gustafsson looked to stick and move in the third while Jones looked for answers. In the fourth, Gustafsson continued to move in and out, with Jones face showing more damage from strikes. The Swedes jab was laying waste to Jones right eye. A bloody Jones stunned Gustafsson with a spinning elbow and followed with a string of knees as the round counted down, leaving the Swede dazed and bloodied. "I finally got the dogfight I was looking for," said Jones, adding he needed more work in the gym. The win -- his 10th straight -- gives Jones the record for most consecutive title defences (six) in UFC light-heavyweight history. He already holds the mark for most submissions (five) by a light-heavyweight and is tied for most finishes (nine). "Hes the champ for a reason," said Gustafsson. Wineland (20-9- had had a good first round but was put away soon after with Barao following the kick with several punches before referee Yves Lavigne stepped in after 35 seconds. The UFC said it was the first such spinning back kick KO in its history, earning Barao a $50,000 bonus for knockout of the night. Barao, who has won 21 straight and not lost since April 2005 in his pro debut, danced with his cornermen in the cage after the win. The flashy Brazilian, a 7-2 favourite Saturday, may upgrade the interim belt to the real thing if champion Dominick Cruz, sidelined since October 2011 by two knee surgeries, cannot return to action come 2014. It was a tough card for Canadian fighters, who went 2-5 on the night. Bantamweight Mitch Gagnon of Sudbury, Ont., and Montreal lightweight John (The Bull) Makdessi were the lone Canadian winners. Rising lightweight star Khabib (The Eagle) Nurmagomedov of Russia put on a show to open the main card, using his speed and well-stocked arsenal to win a unanimous 30-27 decision over veteran Pat (Bam Bam) Healy Healy, a big 155-pounder who was unbeaten in seven fights, had no answers for Nurmagomedov, who improved his perfect record to 21-0 and 5-0 in the UFC. At one point in the third, he slung a bloody Healy (31-16 with one no contest) over his shoulder and crossed the cage before slamming him to the canvas, bringing back memories of Matt Hughes manhandling Frank Trigg. The Russian, who walked in with a white furry hat, used his post-fight interview in the cage to ask for a title shot. Healy sported a close-cropped beard after being told to trim his facial hair by the Ontario Athletic Commission. French middleweight Francis (Limitless) Carmont (22- improved to 6-0 in the UFC by winning a one-sided (30-27, 30-27, 30-2 decision over Costa Philippou (12-3 with one no contest). The bigger Carmont took Philippou, a former pro boxer, completely out of his game by repeatedly taking him down and dominating him on the ground. Carmont had the top position for 12:05 of the 15 minutes. It was like womens tennis as Carmont grunted loudly each time he hit his opponent in the final seconds. Still, White wasnt impressed by the ground war. "Sorry I just woke up! Thank god thats over," he tweeted. The Montreal-based Carmont, who had welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in his corner, has won 11 straight. Lightweight Myles (Fury) Jury improved his perfect record to 13-0 with a split decision over Montreals Mike (The Martian) Ricci (9-4) in the final fight of the undercard. The drab contest drew loud boos from the 15,504 in attendance and did little to pump up the volume immediately before the main card. The judges scored it 29-28, 28-29, 29-28 for Jury. "That wasnt the fight I was expecting at all!!!" tweeted White. In contrast, Gagnon (10- posted a spectacular submission win over the previously unbeaten Dustin (The Diamond) Kimura. Gagnon bloodied Kimuras face with his strikes and then pulled guard when Kimura (11- shot in for a takedown attempt, forcing the Hawaiian to tap out to a tight guillotine choke at 4:05 of the first round. Gagnon, returning from a one-year layoff due to knee surgery, survived an early shot to the liver and some nasty leg kicks before taking it to Kimura. The Canadian earned a $50,000 bonus for submission of the night. Makdessi (12- also looked sharp in knocking out Brazils Renee Forte (8-3) at 2:01 of the first round. Makdessi dropped Forte with a grazing right to the head and then punished him with a dozen more shots on the ground before Lavigne stepped in. Heavyweight Brendan (The Hybrid) Schaub choked out Matt Mitrione in a battle of former football players. Schaub put Mitrione to sleep at 4:06 of the first round with a DArce choke. Both fighters had pointed fingers and talked trash leading up to the bout but they hugged afterwards. Mitrione (6-3) played six season in the NFL with the Vikings and Giants while Schaub (11-3) had a cup of coffee with the Bills and spent time in the Arena Football League. Welterweight Stephen (Wonderboy) Thompson (8- knocked out Chris (The Menace) Clements of London, Ont., at 11:27 of the second round. Clements (11-5 with one no contest), in his first action since July 2012 due to shoulder surgery, saw his six-fight win streak ended. He said later he hurt his knee backstage before the show. Brazil bantamweight Wilson Reis (17-4) used his grappling skills to control Montreal veteran Ivan (The Pride of El Salvador) Menjivar (25-1 en route to a unanimous 29-28 decision. Michel (Tractor) Prazeres (17-, in his first outing at lightweight, earned a split (28-29, 29-28, 29-2 decision over Jesse (The Bodysnatcher) Ronson of London, Ont. Ronson (13-3) was game in his UFC debut, but could not get his striking game going until it was too late and was outclassed on the grappling front. The loss snapped an eight-fight win streak. Bantamweight Alex (Bruce Leroy) Caceres (9-5-0 with one no contest) used his superior striking skills to win a split (29-28, 28-29, 29-2 decision and hand Winnipegs Roland Delorme (9-2 with one no contest) his first loss in five UFC fights. Polish heavyweight Daniel Omielanczuk (16-3-1 with one no contest) knocked out Austrian Nandor (The Hun) Guelmino (11-5-, a former bodyguard, at 3:18 of the third round in a battle of UFC debutantes. The card was the UFCs fourth in Toronto and 14th in Canada. De Aaron Fox Jersey . The shortstop still grieves, but it will be nights like the one Segura had in a 5-2 victory Monday over the Cincinnati Reds that will provide some distraction. Harry Giles Jersey .com) - Richard Shermans two interceptions highlighted a dominant defensive effort, as the Seattle Seahawks routed the San Francisco 49ers in a highly anticipated NFC West Thanksgiving clash. http://www.nbakingsonline.com/Authentic-Anthony-Tolliver-Kings-Jersey/ . Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U.ST. LOUIS -- After stumbling in his first start following three months on the disabled list, Joe Kelly tinkered with his mechanics. Kelly bounced back with seven strong innings and Matt Adams homered in a four-run first as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2 Saturday to send All-Star Zack Greinke to losses in consecutive regular-season starts for the first time in nearly four years. Kelly (2- gave up four hits over seven innings, retiring his last 13 batters as the Cardinals won for the eighth time in 10 games. Kelly didnt get a decision on July 11 in his return from a strained left hamstring, when he gave up six runs over three innings during the Cardinals 7-6 win at Milwaukee. After winning for the first time since April 5, he wouldnt detail his changes. "I did a lot of stuff different, but Im not going to give it away," he said. "If you watch the video, you can probably tell." Kelly induced 12 groundouts and got out of trouble with double plays in each of the first two innings. "I was just trying to mix up pitches and hide stuff better," he said. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny was impressed with Kellys ability to keep the ball down. "I thought it was one of his better pitching performances," Matheny said. "There were times when I even thought his changeup was a breaking ball. It has so much depth to it. So his secondary pitches were on." The Dodgers Adrian Gonzalez thought Kelly had great pitch location. "He didnt throw any balls in the middle of the plate," he said. "He kept throwing his fastballs right on the corner. There werent any pitches to drive." Trevor Rosenthal, the Cardinals third reliever, got his 30th save in 34 chances when Andre Either grounded into a game-ending double play. Coming off a July 9 defeat at Detroit, Greinke (11- walked a season-high five and gave up four runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings. He had not lost back-to-back starts in the regular season since Sept. 20 and 25, 2010, for Kansas City at Detroit and Cleveland, according to STATS. Greinke did lose his regular-season finale against Colorado last year and was beaten by Atlanta in his first post-season start. "Too many mistakes in one inning," Greinke said. "Ive been doing that too much lately, getting behind in a game too early. I need to find a way to be betteer right from the get-go. Chris Webber Jersey. quot; St. Louis improved to 21-10 at home against the Dodgers in the regular season since the start of the 2006. The Cardinals also beat Los Angeles in six games in last years NL championship series. Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday left the game in the fifth, four innings after he was shaken up while diving back into second base on a pickoff attempt. The Cardinals said team doctors determined Holliday did not sustain a concussion. Dodgers All-Star outfielder Yasiel Puig left in the eighth, five innings after he was hit on the left hand by a Kelly pitch. Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said Puig got hit, "near the top or on the side a little bit." Both players were considered day to day. Matt Carpenter opened the Cardinals first with a walk, and Kolten Wong reached on a slow roller when second baseman Dee Gordon threw wide of first, a play ruled a hit and an error that put runners on second and third, Holliday followed with a two-run single and Adams hit his 12th homer on Greinkes 16th pitch of the game. Adams, who has 15 hits in his last 39 at-bats, drilled a line drive over the right-field wall. "The curveball just popped up in the zone," Adams said. "When it does that, you know its a good one to swing at." Greinke said Adams outsmarted him. "I was just trying to be aggressive and it was the wrong choice," he said. "Usually, hes kind of patient early." Los Angeles, which has lost five of eight, scored on Hanley Ramirezs RBI infield single in the third and Carl Crawfords sacrifice fly against Sam Freeman in the eighth. The Dodgers have only 12 runs in their last seven games. "It just tells us that weve got to get better," Mattingly said.
