UFC 165 Video: Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson Countdown Show

Watch 'Countdown to UFC 165' which goes in depth at the light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson.

UFC 165 happens this weekend, and Zuffa has once again released another iteration of their trademark Countdown shows to preview this stacked card that features two title fights. You can watch the entire show above which previews the main event bout between top pound for pound MMA fighter Jon Jones as he takes on talented striker and top contender Alexander Gustafsson.

One of the more interesting things about this title fight is that Jones will be gunning for history as he he looks to break the all-time record for light heavyweight title defenses, a distinction currently held by UFC Hall-of-Famer, Tito Ortiz. The show also focuses a lot about Gustafsson and they do an excellent job of marketing the contender, apart from just simply focusing on the much hyped similarities between the two fighter's age, height and reach.

Other feature bouts on the line up were also previewed, including the interim bantamweight title fight between Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland, along with a heavyweight grudge match between Matt Mitrione and Brendan Schaub.
