Here is the play-by-play from Vitor Belfort vs. Jon Jones:
“Big” John McCarthy is the third man inside the Octagon. Jones puts the Brazilian on his back in under a minute. Belfort slaps on an armbar from his back and almost got Jones to tap. “Bones” is back on top and cuts Belfort with an elbow above his right eye. Belfort is a bloody mess already. Jones is really targeting that eye.
The doctor checks out Belfort’s eye between rounds. Game on. Jones just misses on a spinning elbow. Belfort forges ahead with several punches. Jones starting to throw multiple side kicks to Belfort’s lead knee. Belfort lands a knee to the midsection and then pulls guard for some reason. Not much damage inflicted by either fighter.
Jones giving him a generous serving of kicks to start the round. The champ hasn’t thrown a right hand since the armbar. I wonder if it’s hurt. Jones drops him with a side kick to the body. He follows him to the mat, but allows “The Phenom” to get back to his feet. Belfort appears to have recovered. Jones gets him to canvas again, though his attack isn’t nearly as vicious as it was in the opening frame.
Belfort lands a head kick and follows up with a flurry. He then pulls Jones into his guard again. Jones makes him pay for it this time. He moves to side control, pins down Belfort’s left arm with his knee and slaps on an kimura. Belfort is forced to cry uncle.
