The scoring of the UFC 165 main event fight between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson has been under the microscope since Jones was announced as the unanimous decision winner, giving him a record sixth UFC light-heavyweight championship title defense. Until now though, only the total scores have been public.

On Monday morning, Richard Hustwick of Ontario’s Office of the Athletics Commissioner released the judges’ round-by-round scoring to FOX Sports. Here are those scores:

Judge Chris Lee
Rd. 1: Gustafsson 10-9
Rd. 2: Jones 10-9
Rd. 3: Jones 10-9
Rd. 4: Jones 10-9
Rd. 5: Jones 10-9

Judge Richard Bertrand
Rd. 1: Gustafsson 10-9
Rd. 2: Jones 10-9
Rd. 3: Gustafsson 10-9
Rd. 4: Jones 10-9
Rd. 5: Jones 10-9

Judge Doug Crosby
Rd. 1: Gustafsson 10-9
Rd. 2: Gustafsson 10-9
Rd. 3: Jones 10-9
Rd. 4: Jones 10-9
Rd. 5: Jones 10-9

Interestingly, Gustafsson would have won the bout if it was a three-rounder, as he was up 29-28 on two cards before Jones swept the championship rounds to retain the belt. I personally scored the first and third for Gustafsson and rounds 2, 4 and 5 for Jones, making it 48-47 for the champion.

There has already been a narrative taking hold that Gustafsson was robbed. In a way, the sentiment is understandable. He fought the fight of his life. As a massive underdog, he took the champion to the brink in ways we’ve never experienced or even expected. But the thought he was robbed is frankly incorrect, if only because the fight had some rounds with razor thin margins.

Statistical site FightMetric, which scores fights using a proprietary algorithm called “Total Performance Rating” scored the fight 49-48 for Jones, which is an interesting result for illustrating just how narrow the talent gap between them was on Saturday night. Both rounds 2 and 3 were scored as 10-10 draws, while round 1 went
