A new UFC Light Heavyweight Champion has been crowd, and so the Jon Jones era begins. Along with the show of dominance during the main event, the rest of UFC 128 was fun to watch. From the knockout of Mirko Cro Cop to the the emergence of yet another great Lightweight in Jim Miller — you got a little bit of everything.
1. Jon Jones completely dominates Shogun Rua
Was I shocked? No, but I did think Shogun Rua would put up more of a fight. But Jon Jones just had the more superior game plan to frustrate and take the wind out of Shogun. Jones seems to take the advantages of his opponents and make it his own.
Jones out wrestled both wrestlers in Vladimir Matyushenko and Ryan Bader. Now, he showed off superior Muay Thai against Shogun. Starting with a ton of kicks, he controlled the distance. From there, he took it too the body and that’s where Shogun started to wilt. Punches and especially elbows to the body on the ground completely shut the former Champion down.
Shogun is a game fighter and never quit, he continued to go for submissions and tried to get up constantly, but he just couldn’t. Jones blanketed him and delivered a ton of damage. The last body shot and knee from Jones ended the beating and he became the youngest UFC Champion ever.
2. Urijah Faber successfully makes his debut in the UFC
This was a showcase fight for Urijah Faber, but Eddie Wineland didn’t get that memo — at least for the first round. Wineland was able to shrug off all the takedowns and even land some good shots on Faber in the first. After that, it seemed like Faber just turned up a notch and became way more faster. He was first to the punch, and he was able to dictate the fight where ever it went. Successful debut for the face of WEC.
