Rashad Evans removed the last remaining obstacle standing between him and reigning light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
When the Ultimate Fighting Championship made their first showing on the FOX platform most walked away from their television screens disappointed – It took Brazilian bomber Junior dos Santos a little over a minute to put away Cain Velasquez and take a seat at the top of the division.
Don’t get me wrong, the fight was exciting and action packed but it was still only 64-seconds...
