Jones, at this point 14-1 in his composed-growing blended martial arts profession, had received the the UFC’s gentle heavyweight title the old March in a shellacking of Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua and defended it once spherical six months after that in opposition to one other susceptible PRIDE stalwart in Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson.

Lyoto Machida, though, became once expected by many to be a varied vogue of test. Whereas Joe Rogan’s prophecy of the supposed ‘Machida era’ by no way finally bore the fruit that many expected, the karate stylist became once expected to present a ambitious train to the younger champion — even no topic losing the first two fights of his profession (to Shogun and Rampage, incidentally) a year prior.

No longer so. Jones suitably underscored his put as indubitably one of the most tantalizing skills in the sport with a decisive second spherical submission smash of the Brazilian — with the describe of him losing the unconscious Machida to the mat once of the extra devastating clips in blended martial arts historical previous.
