Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida

1 of 12

    Jon Jones defeats Lyoto Machida by submission (standing guillotine) at 4:26 of the second round.

    Although he may have lost a round for the first time in his MMA career, Jon Jones responded well once he was able to clinch with Lyoto Machida in the second round.

    After taking Machida down, Jones opened the challenger up with an elbow. Shortly after a stoppage for the doctor to check Machida's cut, Jones clinched with Machida along the fence and locked up a standing guillotine choke.

    By putting Machida to sleep, Jones became the first light heavyweight champion since Chuck Liddell to defend the title on back-to-back occasions. Jones finally faced adversity and responded with flying colors. "Bones" is now one step closer to fulfilling his expectations for greatness.

Frank Mir vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

2 of 12

    Frank Mir defeats Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira by submission (kimura) at 3:38 of the first round.

    With his victory at UFC 140, Frank Mir became the first fighter to ever submit Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira by locking up a nasty kimura that appeared to break the Brazilian's arm.

    After rocking Mir moments before the submission, it looked as if Nogueira was primed to avenge his loss to Mir from December 2008. However, Nogueira decided to look for a submission instead of trying to finish Mir with strikes.

    That decision allowed Mir a split second to recover, which gave him the opportunity to start a scramble that ended with him in side control and cranking on Nogueira's shoulder. Hopefully, Nogueira's injury would force the 35-year-old's retirement.

    With three straight victories, Mir is on the verge of contender for the UFC heavyweight title once again.

Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira

3 of 12

    Antonio Rogerio Nogueira defeats Tito Ortiz by technical knockout (body punches) at of the first round.

    After losing for the fifth time in six fights, Tito Ortiz took one step closer toward retirement.

    The fighter formally known as "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" came out strong with dirty boxing. However, a knee to the body forced Ortiz to the canvas, where Antonio Rogerio Nogueira relentlessly worked toward the finish.

    Eventually, an elbow sneaked through Ortiz's guard and led to end of the bout. While Ortiz has nothing to be ashamed of in his legendary career, this isn't how he will want to go out, and he made a point in his post-fight interview that he would like one more fight inside the Octagon.

Brian Ebersole vs. Claude Patrick

4 of 12

    Brian Ebersole defeats Claude Patrick by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28).

    In a back-and-forth contest characteristic of most Brian Ebersole fights, this matchup came down to a narrow split decision. Although he threatened with submission attempts, Patrick spent too much time on his back, which put him on the wrong side of the decision.

    The hard-fought win gave Ebersole his 10th straight win. On the flip side, Patrick's 13-fight winning streak came to an end at the hands of the judges, but the Canadian showed he belongs in the mix with some of the best veterans in the welterweight division. 

Mark Hominick vs. Chan Sung Jung

5 of 12

    Chan Sung Jung defeats Mark Hominick by knockout (punches) at 0:07 of the first round.

    Returning to the Octagon for the first time since the loss of friend and coach Shawn Tompkins, Mark Hominick came out a little too anxious to finish his opponent. After throwing a wild left hook, Hominick was countered by Chan Sung Jung and fonud himself looking up at the lights.

    Having lost a title fight against Jose Aldo in his previous appearance, Hominick has now lost two straight bouts. Hominick is a fan favorite in Canada, but he will need to get back on track in his next fight if he wants to remain a contender at featherweight.

    "He came out aggressive," Hominick said following the loss. "I needed to pace myself.  I let my emotions get the best of me and didn't follow my game plan. I got a little too hyped up."

    After securing a twister submission over Leonard Garcia in his past fight, Jung's seven-second knockout of Hominick at UFC 140 makes for two straight outstanding finishes. Once recognized for his reckless style, Jung is now becoming a serious contender at 145 pounds.

Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Igor Pokrajac

6 of 12

    Igor Pokrajac defeats Krzysztof Soszynski by knockout (punches) at 0:35 of the first round.

    Not long after the retirement of Mirko Filipovic, long-time "Cro Cop" training partner Igor Pokrajac picked up a very impressive win over Krzysztof Soszynski at UFC 140.

    The Croation blitzed "The Polish Experiment" immediately and rocked his opponent with a short right hook. Soszynski backpedaled into the fence and dropped to his knees, where he was finished off by a series of punches.

    With his second straight win, Pokrajac ended Soszynski's two-fight winning streak. The 34-year-old Soszynski has hinted in the past that he doesn't have plans to fight for much longer, so this type of defeat may be one that sends him into retirement.


Jared Hamman vs. Constantinos Philippou

7 of 12

    Constantinos Philippou defeats Jared Hamman by knockout (punch) at 3:11 of the first round.

    In dominant fashion, Constantinos Philippou picked up his second straight victory over a noteworthy opponent by knocking out Jared Hamman. 

    Coming off of a win over C.B. Dollaway in his middleweight debut, Jared Hamman looked primed to make waves at 185 pounds.

    However, Hamman's chin couldn't withstand Philippou's power. Hamman showed the same ability to take a punch that he had early on in his bout with Dollaway, but Philippou didn't let Hamman off the hook and forced the referee to rescue Hamman from unnecessary punishment.

John Makdessi vs. Dennis Hallman

8 of 12

    Dennis Hallman defeats John Makdessi by submission (rear naked choke) at 2:58 of the first round.

    Labeled as one of the brightest up-and-coming stars in the lightweight division, John Makdessi was out-muscled by a larger opponent at UFC 140. From the start of the fight, Dennis Hallman made a point that he had no interest in standing with Makdessi.

    Once Hallman, who came into the bout overweight, was able to take Makdessi to the canvas, he quickly transitioned to a dominant position and sunk in a choke to earn a win in his return to the lightweight division.

    After losing to Brian Ebersole in his latest appearance, the 36-year-old Hallman made the decision to drop to 155 pounds for one last run at a UFC title. In the process, Hallman spoiled Makdessi's previously unblemished record.

Yves Jabouin vs. Walel Watson

9 of 12

    Yves Jabouin defeats Walel Watson by split decision (28-29, 29-28, 30-27).

    A back and forth bout between bantamweights Yves Jabouin and Walel Watson ended with a decision that went in favor of the hometown fighter at UFC 140 in Toronto, Canada.

    Although the 32-year-old Jabouin had to fend off deep guillotine and D'Arce choke attempts, he was able to do enough in the stand-up department to get the better of Watson on the scorecards.  

    The marked Jabouin's first back-to-back victories since November 2008, while Watson suffered his first loss inside the Octagon.



Mark Bocek vs. Nik Lentz

10 of 12

    Mark Bocek defeats Nik Lentz by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).

    Although he was taking on an excellent amateur wrestler in Nik Lentz, Mark Bocek showed some impressive wrestling of his own by taking his opponent to the ground and maintaining top control through the better part of all three rounds.

    Coming off of a no contest against Charles Oliveira, Lentz threatened Bocek with multiple guillotine chokes. However, being a jiu-jitsu black belt, Bocek remained calm and fought off the submission attempt en route to a decision victory.

    "He did zero damage," Lentz said of the bout. "That's what fights are based on and he didn't hurt me. He did absolutely nothing to me except hold me down. That's not what a fight is supposed to be. So what if he was on top, he did nothing.""

    Although he has had multiple draws since, the loss was Lentz's first since March 2007. Meanwhile, Bocek has won two of his past three, but the Canadian will need to continue to improve in order to become a serious contender, as he has recent losses to Benson Henderson and Jim Miller. 

Rich Attonito vs. Jake Hecht

11 of 12

    Jake Hecht defeats Rich Attonito by technical knockout (punches) at 1:10 of the second round.

    Making his UFC debut at UFC 140, Jake Hecht scored a surprising victory over Rich Attonito in the second round of their fight. As Attonito worked to take the fight to the canvad, as he was successful in doing in the first round, Hecht rocked his opponent with an elbow.

    Attonito collapsed to the canvas and Hecht finished the fight shortly after. With the victory, Hecht has now won four consecutive fights and 11 of his past 12, with his only loss during that time coming against the very promising Che Mills.

    Though he was on the verge of breaking into the mid-tier of UFC welterweights, Attonito has now lost two of his past three fights. The 34-year-old Attonito will need to get things turned around quickly in order to restart his climb up the 170-pound ladder.

Mitch Clarke vs. John Cholish

12 of 12

    John Cholish defeats Mitch Clarke by technical knockout (punches) at 4:36 of the second round.

    Two new UFC lightweights opened the UFC 140 card at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada. Despite competing in his home country, Mitch Clarke suffered the first loss of his career in his UFC debut against John Cholish.

    After Clarke began to slow his pace early in the fight, Cholish loosened up and took control of the bout. Cholish outworked Clarke in scrambles and, late in the second round, took his opponent's back by threatening with a kimura.

    "I learned from my mistakes during my last fight," Cholish said after the fight. "I felt him go limp and my instinct kicked in. I knew what I had to do."

    Shortly after gaining back mount, Cholish pounded Clarke out and earned a technical knockout victory. The 27-year-old Cholish has now won eight consecutive fights and looks to be a solid addition to the UFC's 155-pound division.
