the fight also went the distance but jon "bones" jones' performance has captured the attention of many mma fans. going into the fight, jones' record is immaculate with 7 wins, 5 of which were knockouts and 1 by submission. he fought andre gusmao in ufc 87 and won by decision but most people thought that stephan bonnar's experience in the octagon would give him the upper hand. that didn't happen though as jones showed some pretty weird striking and solid takedowns.
apart from his takedowns, jon jones also wowed the crowed with his spinning back elbow.
even without a ko win this time, i think jon 'bones' jones has made it clear that he is a legit contender in the light-heavyweight division. sure, he's raw and green but give it a few more fights and we might see a monster. remember, he's only 21 and has a lot of upside. if there's a keeper fantasy league for the ufc, i would immediately pick up jones. and i think you would too if you've seen these live:
