Yesterday, March 19 was the anniversary of Jon Jones’ first title win. At UFC 128 in 2011, Jones beat Shogun Rua to become the youngest champion in UFC history. It was a one-sided affair that saw Jones utilize his kicks, wrestling and ground and pound game to outshine Shogun. He hit a vicious knee, an uppercut and then knocked Shogun down to the ground with a body shot and a vicious knee to end it.
It was the start of future UFC Hall of Famer’s run at greatness. Check out the full fight, courtesy of the UFC.
