UFC 128 main-card results: "Bones" owns Rua, claims title with third-round stoppage
NEWARK, N.J. – Disrespectful or not, UFC wunderkind Jon Jones was just fine to accompany his fight-week autographs with “Champion 2011.”
Jones, now the youngest title holder in UFC history, showed flashes of
brilliance en route to claiming the promotion’s light heavyweight title
in a three-round dismantling of former champ Mauricio “Shogun” Rua
The bout served as the main event of Saturday’s “UFC 128: Shogun vs.
Jones” event, which took place Saturday night at Prudential Center in
Newark, N.J., and aired on pay-per-view.
