Jones makes history in Toronto

Toronto (WBNG Binghamton) Jon "Bones" Jones was matched punch for punch by challenger Alexander Gustafsson, but in the end by unanimous decision Jones retained his UFC light heavyweight title for a record sixth time at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto Saturday night.

With the win, the Union-Endicott grad has now successfully defended his belt six times, more than any other fighter in UFC history in the light heavyweight division.

Afterwards, neither Jones or Gustafsson could make it to the post-fight press conference, as UFC President Dana White announced that both were already on their way to the hospital.

"Who doesn't want to see this rematch," White said afterwards, hinting that the two could be back in the octagon again soon.

Jones did take to Twitter though after setting the new UFC light heavyweight record for title defenses.

"Thank you for everyone support. I felt a little off my game tonight but I learned a lot about myself and I promise to come back better," the U-E grad tweeted out.

Jones is now 19-1 in his career.
