Jones wins by tko

 

Jon Jones bloodied Chael Sonnen with a series of strikes to the face in the first round to win by TKO and defend his light heavyweight championship on Saturday night at UFC 159. Jones (18-1) matched Tito Ortiz in UFC history with his fifth straight successful light heavyweight title defense. Jones, though, appeared to break a toe and quickly needed assistance inside the octagon. He hobbled around and used a stool to sit for his post-fight interview. Jones rested with the belt around his waist as doctors wrapped his foot. He walked out with no assistance and his left big toe bandaged up. – Associated Press
