UFC 128 Results: Jon Jones Defeats Mauricio Rua
Shogun tried to take the incentive to open the third round and managed to force Jones into a backpedal, which qualified as a miracle given the first two rounds.
Alas for the Brazilian, it was a minor and brief victory as were the subsequent takedown and attack on Bones' leg. The end result was Jon Jones on top of the champ, which was not a good position for Mauricio Rua.
A big punch landed from Shogun's guard before those terrible elbows went to work and sealed the deal. Rua was able to scramble out of their way as a mere survival instinct, but there was no safe haven in retreat from the youngest champion in UFC history (forget Belfort).
A final, nauseating left hook to Rua's body followed by an equally unpleasant left knee put the official stamp on a victory that was a formality after the first 30 seconds of Round 1.
Jon Jones defeats Mauricio Rua by TKO (strikes) at 2:37 of the third round.
Man am I glad I changed my pick.
