Let me start with the main event for this card. Jon Jones wowed his fans once again by stopping Brandon Vera in the first round. Vera probably knew he was losing when he threw those upkicks, especially after having a point taken away. Jones' entrance song (Jay-Z- Empire State of Mind) was pretty fitting too since he trains and lives in NY, and an important part of pumping up fans is having a good entrance song! Jones has definetely moved up in the top contender list, previously being 9th on the list, and we could see him get his title shot soon.
The co main event was also a great fight with an outcome that probably did not shock most people. No one knew wheter Gabriel Gonzaga or Junior Dos Santos would come out with a W, because these are two top contenders and very dangerous strikers. Dos Santos was able to drop Gonzaga and finish him and earn himself a TKO victory. Both fighters looked great in the fight, and Dos Santos was able to pull off the victory with his lethal striking. Paul Buentello vs Cheik Congo was a good fight, Congo has obviously been working on his wrestling and was able to secure many takedowns against Buentello. But Congo being a dangerous striker as well, it was no surprise that Buentello was finished with strikes, even though he tapped and it was not a TKO. This card was definetely stacked and a very good event especially for not being PPV.
