UFC 140 Wrap-up: Jones, Machida, Mir, Jung take home $75KPosted on December 11, 2011, 12:01 AM by Trent Reinsmith
UFC 140 delivered a wild night of fights tonight from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with only three of the 12 scheduled bouts going the distance. UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones overcame the first real adversity in his career, stopping Lyoto Machida in the second round via submission. Frank Mir proved that his first win over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira was not a fluke, submitting his with a vicious kimura. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira fared much better than his brother, stopping Tito Ortiz via TKO in the first round. Brian Ebersole continued his winning ways, earning a split decision victory over Claude Patrick and to open the main card, Chan Sung Jung earned a TKO over Mark Hominick in a mere seven seconds.
The UFC awarded $75,000 bonuses to the night’s top performers. UFC President Dana White announced the winners at the post-fight press conference.
