“Rampage,” Jones earn Fight of the Night honors
UFC 135 is in the books, and main event fighter Jon Jones and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson have earned Fight of the Night honors.
The champion defeated Jackson via submission in the fourth round of their five-round bout. But he dealt the challenger plenty of damage prior to the stoppage.
Earning the Submission of the Night award was Nate Diaz, the brother of the ever-controversial Nick Diaz. He submitted Takanori Gomi in the opening frame of their lightweight contest.
Winner of the award for Knockout of the Night, Josh Koscheck dominated Matt Hughes after a very close contest. Hughes landed effectively during the first round, but got caught with a shot as the frame came to a close.
