Jon Jones battered veteran Vladimir Matyushenko for a first round stoppage at UFC on Versus 2.
Jon "Bones" Jones brought a steaming hype train into his second straight headlining fight on UFC on Versus. Nothing that happened tonight did anything to derail it.
After the fight announcer Joe Rogan asked Jon Jones if he was ready for a top contender next. Jones said he'd fight whoever Joe Silva put in front of him.
Matyushenko tried to close the distance on his feet but found himself quickly clinched and taken down. From there it was just a matter of time as Jones passed guard, got a mounted crucifix and landed some vicious elbows to the head and got the stoppage.
