UFC 140 Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida Video: Full Fight Highlights

Jon Jones defeated Lyoto Machida with a standing guillotine choke to retain his UFC light heavyweight title Saturday night in Toronto, Canada. Jones became the first fighter since Chuck Liddell to successfully defend the belt more than once.

Entering the fight it was believed that Lyoto Machida could create enough of a style match up to really create problems for the champion. For the first round Machida landed several significant strikes that demonstrated Jon Jones' chin and ability to fight through adversity. Jones had difficulty finding his range in the first.

In the second round Jon Jones found his timing and opened up a cut on Lyoto Machida's forehead with a big elbow from Machida's guard. When Machida regained his feet he was visibly out of it and Jones sunk in a standing guillotine choke against the fence. Machida tried to work through the submission but went unconscious, forcing referee 'Big' John McCarthy to stop the fight in the second round.
