The main event at UFC 135 featured former title holder Quinton “Rampage” Jackson battling reigning light heavyweight king Jon “Bones” Jones (Pictured) for his crown inside the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
Jones turned in a dominating performance en route to collecting his first successful title defense. Jackson was never able to find his grove, as Jones used his length and a wide array of strikes to “mesmerize” his challenger.
Once the champion felt his opponent weakening in the 4thRound, “Bones” did what he was supposed to do – go for the kill.
“My coaches told me he was starting to break. So they said if I wanted to finish the fight, that was the round to do it,” Jones said following the bout.
Finish the fight he did, as Jones forced Jackson to submit after securing a rear-naked choke.
