UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson fight card

USA TODAY Sports

A look at the UFC's September 21st PPV in Toronto, as Jon Jones defends his light heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson.

Now that we've settled the global debate over whether or not Jon Jones can indeed beat Chael Sonnen in an MMA fight, we can resume watching Jones actually fighting established light heavyweight contenders. Alexander Gustafsson is the only man that stands in the way of Jones breaking the UFC record for most consecutive title defenses at 205 lbs.

Renan Barao is the interim bantamweight champ by name, but with Dominick Cruz's ongoing knee problems he might as well be the full bantamweight champion. He's fighting Eddie Wineland in the co-main event in his 2nd title defense. The two were supposed to headline UFC 161, but Barao broke his foot and had to pull out of the fight.

Pat Healy fights Khabib Nurmagomedov, Matt Mitrione fights Metamoris legend Brendan Schaub, and Costa Philippou takes on Francis Carmont to round out the main card.
