All five “UFC 135: Jones vs. Rampage” preliminary bouts are officially in the record books. Facebook kicked off the festivities with three live fights and Spike TV immediately followed up two additional bouts.
The night started off with a bang, as James Te Huna made very quick work of Ricardo Romero. It took Te Huna all of 47 seconds to knockout his opponent.
Tony Ferguson (Pictured) closed out the freebie fights in style by breaking Aaron Riley’s jaw in the opening ticks of their lightweight affair. It was Ferguson’s first contest since winning “The Ultimate Fighter 13.”
The Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado is hosting tonight’s extravaganza. A light heavyweight title affair between champ Jon Jones and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson headlines the pay-per-view broadcast.
