Jon Jones silenced his many haters – at least for now – by finishing Alexander Gustafsson in the main event of tonight’s (Sat., December 29, 2018) UFC 232 from The Forum in Inglewood, California.

In the end, it was Jones’ feared ground and pound that finished Gustafsson and regained his title. Watch the brutal finish here:
