“UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones” took place Sunday afternoon inside the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado.

Jon Jones sent a violent message to not only Brandon Vera, but the entire light heavyweight division as well after he collected his 10th victory in 11 tries.

“Bones” Jones entered the Octagon as a 2-to-1 favorite to hand Vera his second consecutive loss, and one vicious left elbow later proved why the Betting Gods are usually correct.
