Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Jon "Bones" Jones made history Saturday night at UFC 128, becoming the youngest UFC Champion ever. Bringing home the title of Light Heavyweight Champion, 23-year-old Jones was up against Maurico "Shogun" Rua.
Despite Rua's reputation as a well-rounded champion with many awards, including Fighters Only World MMA Awards 2010 Knockout of the Year, Jones entered the cage in full form, controlling the fight from the opening bell. Jones clearly dominated Rua through the first two rounds with unorthodox striking, speedy footwork, length, and cardio. Halfway into the third round after many cleanly landed blows, Jones landed a knee that put Rua down and the match was officially declared a TKO victory for Jones.
