As soon as I get home I see a finish.

How did the rest of the card go?

He was getting dominated on his feet. Getting a sniff of that submission made him continue to chase it the rest of the fight. He had nothing for Jones on the feet.

Crazy that Vitor kept trying that. Props to him for taking the fight, almost pulling off the upset, and surviving way longer than I thought he would.. but weird gameplan.

I was hoping to see Vitor just go for the One-And-Done and bullrush Jones.

I've hated that kick to the knees that Jones does since I first noticed him doing it during the Shogun fight. I understand it's a legal kick and it's probably smart to use, but I just personally think it's cheap.

Sonnen has nothing to offer in that fight.

Screwed Rampage's knees up pretty bad. I don't care for it either, along with foot stomps.

I think Vitor pulled guard and "never took a chance" because Jones smothered him. The guy is too damn good. Would like to see him take some HW fights for a challenge.

Exactly. Sonnen has no BJJ or stand up. Other than his mouth, he has nothing to challenge Jones with.

Vitor took a chance when he tried for an armbar. He rarely does that and it almost worked. Hard to complain about his gameplan when it nearly paid off and he didn't have long to put it together in the first place.

But now we know that Jones can also fight out of being in serious danger, which we didn't before.

Yup.

Hendo and Gustafsson are left now. Hopefully Jones moves up soon.

So what? Then he loses in 30 seconds. Not a fight worth having.

Also consider that Jones doesn't have many more fights at this weight. He can't make 205 forever. No reason to waste one of his last fight's there on that.

He is smothering..he uses his size to his advantage. Vitor nearly tore his arm off..if thats Werdum or Mir JJ is missing a limb. I await him to move to HW because I think that is his true class but we'll see.

Say what you want about Jones outside the cage he is amazing inside it.

Refused to tap to what is probably a broken arm and then dominates someone before taping them.

Also forgot to mention that I loved 1) Belfort going for the headkick when Jones decided to do his stupid crouch on the ground monkey crawl to start the fight, and 2) Big John yelling at Jones "Hey you wanted to play that game" when I assume Jones shot Big John a look on Belfort's head kick attempt.
