UFC 165: Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

At UFC 165, Jon Jones will take aim at the UFC record for consecutive light heavyweight title defenses.

Currently tied with Tito Ortiz at five straight title defenses, Jones will look to further cement himself as the greatest 205-pound fighter ever by beating Alexander Gustafsson. Following back-to-back title defenses over Chael Sonnen and Vitor Belfort, a pair of middleweights who moved up to challenge him, Jones will finally meet an opponent of comparable size in Gustafsson.

Since suffering the lone loss of his career to Phil Davis, Gustafsson has won six straight fights. Most recently, the Swedish light heavyweight defeated former champion Mauricio Rua to earn his first shot at UFC gold.

As this potentially history-making matchup approaches, it's time to take a look at how Jones and Gustafsson stack up against one another in all areas.
