TORONTO (AP) - A bloody Jon Jones won a unanimous decision against hard-charging Alexander Gustafsson to retain his light-heavyweight title at UFC 165 on Saturday night.

Jones (19-1) won with his closest margin with the judges scoring the five-round fight 48-47, 48-47 and 49-46.

Gustafsson (15-2) gave a remarkable effort, getting the best of the early rounds before hanging on in the fourth and fifth. He made Jones look human, cutting him and taking him down for the first time in his UFC career. As he promised, the Swede's hands were faster.

It wasn't 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.
