Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones is upset about Travis Browne stealing his favorite move, wonder how long it’ll be before this one’s deleted…
The UFC Fight Night 81 event in Boston provided many fireworks and talking points last night (Sunday January 17, 2015), none more so than the changing of hands of yet another title. The champion TJ Dillashaw took on the former boss Dominick Cruz in the evening’s main event, and the Boston crowd got to witness yet another champ losing their title in a crazy 12 month run of title switches.
For his part as the ruler of the 135-pound division, Dillashaw provided two great finishes over the formerly untouchable Renan Barao, and those duo of fights won’t be forgotten in a hurry, but ‘The Dominator’ was just too crafty and experienced for the young Alpha Male exile.
Another scrap that provided a highly unexpected ending was Travis Browne against Matt Mitrione in the heavyweight division. The two hard hitting big men fought it out on the main card in Boston, with a disgusting injury marring the evening for ‘Meathead,’ and it wasn’t without it’s fair share of controversy too.
It was a good fight, but ‘Hapa’ would ultimately win the day with a third round TKO over Mitrione, although a couple of eye pokes would leave ‘Meathead’s’ eye grotesquely swollen and disfigured when all was said and done. Check it out:
Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones was watching closely as his former Jackson’s MMA team mate defeated Mitrione, and his Tweet about eye pokes is hilarious. Apparently Browne got wind of this too, and has also reacted to the accusations of being a ‘dirty fighter.’
