Urijah Faber vs. Eddie Wineland
Round 1
Keith Peterson is the referee for tonight’s co-main event. The bantamweights tie up and Wineland shoves Faber into the fence. Wineland controls with underhooks and looks to trip Faber to the floor, but Faber stays up and drops for a shot of his own. Wineland stuffs this and socks Faber on his way back up. Faber charges forward again and brings Wineland down momentarily. Soon back up to his feet, Wineland gets underhooks again and looks for a takedown against the cage. He finally gets it about midway through the round, but Faber stands quickly. Faber trying to time Wineland’s right hand, lands a few counter rights before shooting in. Wineland stuffs the shot once more and Faber goes back to headhunting. Faber is scoring with single right hands and gets Wineland to bite on a takedown fake before the horn.

Wineland sticks a left jab in Faber’s face, and Faber socks him with a hard uppercut. More punches follow, then a takedown from the “California Kid” with 70 seconds on the clock. Faber lifts Wineland and slams him down again. Wineland throwing his legs up again and trying to avoid the elbows of Faber, but he can’t scoot free before the fight ends.

Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Jon Jones
Round 1
Referee Herb Dean is the referee for tonight’s light heavyweight championship bout. Should it go the distance, the judges at cageside are Douglas Crosby, Cardo Urso and Dave Tirelli. The challenger opens the bout with a leaping knee, then a spinning back-kick that misses. The men clinch and Jones scores a trip takedown with ease against the base of the cage. Rua stuffs Jones back to open guard and looks to isolate the arms from the bottom. Jones spins to Shogun’s right and tries to pass half-guard while looking at a guillotine. Rua puts him back in full guard and Jones mashes with elbows from the top as he tries again to pass. Rua scoots free and stands, but eats a barrage of knees and punches on the way up. The champ is dazed against the cage as Jones backs up to give him space. Rua looks absolutely spent coming forward with 90 seconds still to go in the opening round. Jones corks Rua with more long punches, then a kick to the knee. Shogun scores with a one-two of his own and takes Jones’ back staning, but Jones reverses and finishes the round in Rua’s guard.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 Jones
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Jones
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Jones

Round 2
Jones whips a leg kick at Rua, then backs him up with a teep. They tie up and Jones blasts him with a spinning elbow as they split. Jones going high and low with his kicks, playing matador to the tired-looking Rua. Now Shogun connects with a combination, but Jones instantly ties up. Jones sticks a hand in Shogun’s face to show the distance and backs up when the champion comes forward. Superman punches, elbows and more low kicks from Jones. Shogun throws a leg kick of his own and gets tripped down, winding up with Jones postured up in his guard. Jones smothers Rua and then drives an elbow into his face. Jones cracks Rua with more elbows, then lays his forearm across the Brazilian’s throat. The right side of Rua’s face looks battered and swollen as the last minute of the second frame ticks down. Herb Dean warns Jones not to elbow Rua’s neck. That’s where the round ends.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-8 Jones
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-8 Jones
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-9 Jones

HOLY SHYTE, Jones by complete freaking domination...I was rooting for him because I wanted to see him as champ because he is so exciting to watch, but he had never faced someone of Shogun's talent level, and it was not even a problem for Jones....Wow, this guy is incredible, so fun to watch....He made Shogun look like an amateur, just wow...I thought he'd do good, but for him to just roll right through him like that, just damn

Round 3
Jones plants a one-two on Rua and misses with a head kick. Rua takes the opportunity to duck inside, then dives for a leg lock. Jones will have none of it and flattens Rua out, then works on advancing past half-guard. Rua breathing heavy on the bottom as Jones opens up with heavy punches and elbows. A series of elbows causes Shogun to cover up. Jones tries to finish but Rua turtles. Jones drives a nasty knee into the body. Rua stands and wobbles backward into the cage. Jones stalks him, finds his opening and drills him with a brutal left hook to the body. Another knee lands on the way down and Herb Dean rescues Rua at 2:37 of the third round, making 23-year-old Jon Jones the youngest champion in UFC history.
