UFC 135 - Results and GIFs

Main Event
Jon Jones def. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson via submission (rear-naked choke) - Round 4, 1:14
 Jon Jones is one of those kind of guys that comes around every decade or so. He has never been taken down in the UFC, and he has amazing striking accuracy and takedown accuracy. He has 1 loss on his record, which was a DQ of Matt Hamill. Many wondered if Rampage could be the one to 'test' Jone's chin. Well lets just say this was one of the most methodical and dominant fights in a UFC championship fight. Jones picked him apart with leg kicks and from the clinch, and finished off with a RNC.

Main Bouts 
Josh Koscheck def. Matt Hughes via KO (punches) - sRound 1, 4:59
Matt Hughes is a living legend for the sport, but I gotta be honest, Koscheck was a very, very bad match-up with him. Koscheck has better hands and arguably better MMA wrestling (maybe not in Matt's prime though), with Matt being better at GnP and submissions. Hughes has also been in a ton of fights, the most in the UFC, and it has surely taken it's toll on him. While he looked good early in the fight, Koscheck landed a punch that sent him down, and followed up with some big punches to get the KO.

Mark Hunt def. Ben Rothwell via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-27, 30-27)
If you had told me Mark Hunt would put up a competitive fight with Ben Rothwell I would've chuckled. If you had told me he would attempt and almost finish an armbar and eventually win the fight, I'd call you crazy. Well that's exactly what Mark Hunt did. It looks like he took his training very seriously and won in a dog fight against Rothwell.
The gastastrophe
Travis Browne def. Rob Broughton via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
Broughton is a tough guy, as the vicious strike Browne found out as he could not put away Rob.

Nate Diaz def. Takanori Gomi via submission (armbar) - Round 1, 4:27 
At one point in his MMA career, many fans thought Gomi was the best lightweight in the world. He was an exciting fighter who had some heavy hands. His UFC stint has been pretty lack luster though, and Nate Diaz made a stamp on that. Diaz started out rocking Gomi with the infamous Stockton style of boxing, and finished him off with some beautiful chain submissions.

Preliminary Bouts
Tony Ferguson def. Aaron Riley via TKO (doctor's stoppage) - Round 1, 5:00
Tim Boetsch def. Nick Ring via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27)
Preliminary Bouts (Facebook Prelims)
Junior Assuncao def. Eddie Yagin via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-27)
Takeya Mizugaki def. Cole Escovedo via TKO (punches) - Round 2, 4:30
James Te Huna def. Ricardo Romero via knockout (punches) - Round 1, 0:47
