Kid Nate reviews UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen giving ratings to every fight on the card.

In which I offer my post-fight review and analysis of UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen from top to bottom.

For the most part the fight card was a stinker with bad luck/jinxed ending fights outnumbering quality scraps by a slim margin. We had 2 fights end via eye poke, and a championship fight that saw the champ nearly tear off his own big toe some how in the course of delivering an utter ass-whipping to an undeserving challenger.

Enjoy!
