UFC Jon Jones

If you happened to miss UFC 140‘s main event between light heavyweight king Jon Jones (Pictured) and Lyoto Machida on Saturday, no worries because ESPN has released the video highlights for your viewing pleasure.

Although Jones faced the most adversity he ever has inside the Octagon, the 24-year-old managed to gather himself and post yet another convincing victory.

What seemed to change the course of the scrap was after Jones took “The Dragon” down in the 2ndRound and sliced a gash on his forehead with a razor-sharp elbow. Jones admitted at the post-fight press conference that seeing Machida’s blood gave him an extra boost to go in for the kill.

Jones subsequently floored Machida with a left and locked in a standing guillotine choke while the Brazilian was trying to get to his feet. Fast-forward several seconds and Machida was unconscious and “Bones” had UFC president Dana White wrap the belt around his waist for the third time.

UFC 140 took place inside the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
