The youthful 23 year-old Jon Jones (11-1) continues to make a tear through the UFC light-heavyweight division, putting away the veteran Vladimir Matyushenko (24-5). Jones shoots under a punch, takes Matyushenko down, works to pin the arms down in a crucifix. From there Herb Dean quickly stops the fight seeing the viscous elbows coming from Jones with Matyushenko having no way of defending. The fight ends at round one, 1:52.
This is Jon Jones fifth win in the UFC octagon pushing him up the light heavyweight ladder. In his post-fight interview, Jones explains he trained the hardest he has ever trained in his career, and he hopes that Joe Silva gives him a top fighter in his division next.
