As expected Chael came out looking very aggressive, but gave up an early takedown for his efforts. He scrambled back to his feet and they wrapped up in the clinch. Chael really looked to grab the guillotine from the clinch, but Jones was unfazed. Jones hooked his arms behind Chael's legs and lifted him for a big takedown. Chael did his best to work off his back, but found himself defending absolutely brutal ground and pound from the champ.
Jon Jones retained his title with a first round TKO (4:44) over Chael Sonnen.
The post fight interview showed that Jones suffered a gruesome broken toe during the fight.
