“UFC 145: Jones vs. Evans” is officially halfway over, as all six preliminary fights have now entered the mixed martial arts record books.
Although there was plenty of anticipation entering tonight’s show, much of that was stalled after five uneventful decisions kicked off the festivities. Heavyweight Travis Browne (Pictured) quickly put an end to the judges’ participation by easily submitting Chad Griggs with an arm triangle choke in the opening ticks of their scrap.
Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia is hosting tonight’s fiesta. The pay-per-view broadcast begins live at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
Light heavyweight champ Jon Jones puts his strap on the line against Rashad Evans in the night’s featured attraction.
