Heading into this fight, Jon “Bones” Jones is the heavy favorite to win over UFC Light Heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
With his combination of power, length, speed and with a killer instinct, he is the most hyped young fighter since B.J. Penn first came into the scene 10 years ago.
In the main event of UFC 128, Jones did not disappoint as he overwhelmed Shogun with elbows, knees, kicks, punches and hammers until the champion could take it no more and simply quit at the 2:37 mark of the 3rd Round after catching a mean left hook to his body.
