Video: Jon Jones Defeats Lyoto Machida at UFC 140

With the UFC’s deal with Fox, the organization has been able to broadcast all sorts of programming, including airing full pay-per-view events on Fuel TV. Recent events that took place in 2011, such as UFC 135 and UFC 136, have been broadcast on the channel in the past month. Also airing on the channel is UFC Unleashed, which has long been a programming staple for fans looking to relive recent fights. One such fight that recently aired was the light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and challenger Lyoto Machida.

The battle took place at UFC 140 in December 2011 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Jones, who was coming off of a win over “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 135 in September, was looking to defend his belt for the second time. Machida, the former champion, earned the title shot after defeating Randy Couture at UFC 129 in April.

Machida gave Jones perhaps the toughest test he has faced since becoming a top contender in the UFC, as he enjoyed some success in the first round. That success soon ended, as Jones was able to turn the fight around, eventually defeating the Brazilian via guillotine choke late in the second round.

Watch the video posted by Fuel TV, as they show the highlights of the second round, which eventually ended with Jones maintaining his title with the victory.
