All seven “UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida” preliminary bouts are officially in the record books. The UFC’s Facebook page offered up three live prelims and ION Television broadcasted the remaining four scraps.
Fans may have thought the card started off with a bang when the first two contests ended in 2ndRound TKO’s, but that was nothing compared to what Igor Pokrajac (Pictured) did to Krzysztof Soszynski in the last preliminary scrap of the night.
Pokrajac brought the heat early and quickly disposed of his light heavyweight counterpart by knocking him unconscious in only 35 seconds. Just in case you were wondering, Soszynski was nearly a 3-to-1 favorite.
The Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada is hosting the Octagon’s return trip up north. The pay-per-view broadcast is headlined by a light heavyweight title affair between champ Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida.
The PPV begins live at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
