Jon Jones Victorious Over Rampage Jackson at UFC 135

Jon Jones was able to keep his UFC light heavyweight title with his win over Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson at UFC 135.  He wasn’t the only winner on the night.  Josh Koscheck, Mark Hunt, Travis Browne, Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson all came away winners at last nights event. Jon Jones was impressive from the start and looked to be in control of Rampage Jackson throughout last nights fight.   Jones took Rampage into the fourth round when Jackson tapped out with 1:14 left to fight.  The move that got it done was a rear-naked choke.  Now Jones will have to face Rashad Evans for his next title defense.  Jones had some goals in mind before the fight and his coaches helped him through the fourth round.

My coaches told me that going into the fourth round that he was breaking a little bit and if I was going to do it this was the time…The game plan was to prove that we could strike with Quinton Jackson. He insulted my striking game before the fight.

In the second part of a co-main event, Josh Koscheck made quite the return against Matt Hughes.  Koscheck connected with a right hand to Hughes chin which knocked him down.

After that Koscheck jumped on him and began to pound away and it was ruled a knockout  at 4:59 into the first round.

Many thought that this may be Hughes’ last fight, but after the match the 37 year old said that is not going to retire and just wants the UFC to put him on the shelf.

In a heavy weight bought it was Mark Hunt over Ben Rothwell.  Hunt was totally dominate over Rothwell with 120 landed strikes as opposed to Rothwell’s 54 attempted strikes and only 23 of them landed.

Travis Browne wasn’t able to stop Rob Broughton in first round like his 5 previous opponents, but he got the job done after going to distance and got the unanimous decision.

Nate Diaz looked incredible against  Takanori Gomi.  Diaz was in complete control and got Gomi to submit at 4:27 into the first round.

It was a TKO for Tony Ferguson who wasted no time against Aaron Riley.  Ferguson broke Riley’s jaw in the middle of the first round.  Ferguson improves to 12-2.
