UFC 135: Jon Jones vs Rampage Jackson: B/R MMA Readers Pick Jones by Knockout

Jason SchielkeCorrespondent IJune 2, 2015

We asked, you answered, and this was a close one.

This week, Bleacher Report MMA asked the readers who would win the main event of UFC 135 and how they would win.

After nearly 1,000 votes, 45 percent of those that voted believe that Jon Jones will retain his title by knocking out Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Nearly 37 percent of the voters believe Rampage Jackson will regain the light heavyweight title he lost three years ago by knocking out Jones. 18 percent believe the fight will end by submission or decision.

Jon Jones will be looking to defend his light heavyweight title for the first time later this evening when he faces former champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in the main event of UFC 135 in Denver, CO.

After defeating Ryan Bader at UFC 127, Jones was awarded a title shot against reigning champion "Shogun" Rua at UFC 128. Jones made the most of the opportunity given to him, as he destroyed Rua over the course of three rounds before securing the TKO victory.

Rampage Jackson won the UFC light heavyweight title by knocking out Chuck Liddell at UFC 71. He would go on to defend the title once against Dan Henderson at UFC 75 before losing the belt to Forrest Griffin at UFC 86.

So who will reign supreme this evening? Will Jon Jones be able to live up to the hype that has surrounded him? Will Rampage Jackson be able to turn back the clock and win another title?

We will find out in a matter of hours.
