they both took a beating. jones looks worse because gustavsson did almost all of his work with punches to the head while jones' work was divided between the legs, body and head of gustavsson.
if anything he did the least amount of work to the head and when he did go to upstairs he did so with elbows and kicks that landed hard but usually to the side of the head, forehead etc and not clean where they would leave a mark.
gustavsson went almost exclusively to the head and used mainly punches which landed more on the face leaving more marks.
jones looks worse but he clearly got the better of him imo, gustavsson barely made it past the finish line.
