Well the time has come and gone and hopefully you didn’t miss out on an exciting night of fights. All the fighters tonight put on great performances in a highly anticipated mma event.
Jones vs Evans went the distance but it was Jones who secured the win in a fairly one sided, 25 minute, stand up bout. The champion out landed Evans in significant strikes by more than 2:1. Evans made many attempts but was unable to take the fight to the ground, he went 0 for 4 on his takedown attempts for the night. This makes the 3rd consecutive UFC title defense for Jones, now (16-1), and solidifies him as a top pound for pound fighter.
