 UFC 128 Results: Jones Destroys Shogun, Becomes Youngest UFC Champion
posted 6 years ago

Those playing March Madness betting odds have watched freshmen and sophomores become the dominant classes in college hoops, and in the UFC’s light heavyweight division, we are witnessing a youth movement as Jon “Bones” Jones became the youngest champion in the history of the company, crushing a man that used to be called the next great young gun.

 

Jones completed his journey to the top of the 205-pound division at 2:37 of the third round as Mauricio “Shogun” Rua was rescued by referee Herb Dean, but really, this fight was over by the end of the first as Rua looked out of shape and perplexed. Granted, Rua is coming off an injury and could be rusty, but we’re not even sure that a healthy “Shogun” would have been able to handle Jones, who may be changing the face of MMA. We’ve never seen a pure athlete like Jones before, and he’s picked up on the MMA game very quickly, even quicker than a young “Shogun” did when he ran through PRIDE. Now, Jones will face his teammate, Rashad Evans, who was supposed to have this title shot but hurt his knee in training. He’s familiar with Jones’ unpredictable style, but expect Evans, a former champion at 205 pounds himself, to be a massive UFC Odds underdog when they step into the octagon.

 

Urijah Faber looked a bit nervous in his UFC Predictions debut against Eddie Wineland, but the veteran fought back in his second fight at bantamweight to earn a tough decision win. Faber took Wineland to the ground and while he didn’t batter him, he did enough and then improved his stand-up in the third round to seal the deal. Next, Faber will take on bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, who has one loss in his record, which was to Faber.

 

It was a split night for the Miller brothers, as Jim knocked out Kamal Shalorus at 2:15 in the third round of their lightweight tilt, while Dan lost a decision to Nate Marquardt in the middleweight division. Jim has now won seven in a row and we’re going to be 5dimes that he is definitely in the running for a title shot, but the 155-pound division is loaded right now. Dan took the Marquardt fight on short notice because Yoshihiro Akiyama pulled out due to the tragedy in Japan, so this wasn’t a bad loss for Dan, especially as Marquardt is a very good fighter.

 

Finally, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic is done in the UFC, and possibly in MMA after he was knocked out by Brendan Schaub UFC Results at 3:44 in the third round of their heavyweight bout. “Cro Cop” actually looked decent for a while as he knew his career was on the line, but his chin isn’t the same and Schaub hit him with a big right hand. “Cro Cop” needs to just bow out before he gets seriously hurt, and wagering on him in the octagon wouldn’t be a smart bet.
