UFC 152 “Jones vs Belfort” fight recap and bonuses

UFC 152 has officially wrapped up and its time to discuss the highlights of the night.  Jon Jones vs Vitor Belfort was one of the closest moments of Jones’ career as he dodged bullets to retain the UFC light heavyweight title.

The champ put on a great show but was nearly caught a few times by Belfort’s lightning hands and feet.

Jones was able to secure the submission win in the 4th round via an arm lock that had the Brazilian tapping very quickly.

MMACanada.net caught up with Jones at the post-fight presser and his arm was in a sling and he does not know the full extent of his injury as of yet.

Jones pocketed a whopping $65k bonus for his submission win.

The flyweight title was up for grabs as Demetrious Johnson defeated Joseph Benavidez via split-decision.  A reporter at the post-fight conference asked Dana White what he thought and the UFC president stated he had it 4-1.

Cub Swanson earned the KO of the night with a devastating knockout over Brazilian contender Charles Oliveira.

Fight of the night went to Canadian TJ Grant and American Evan Dunham for their back and forth slugfest that has the fans at the edge of their seat.
