UFC 140: Jones Vs Machida Live Odds

UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on December 10, 2011 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario.

The main event between UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and Shotokan karate black belt Lyoto Machida had fans salivating, due to the riddle that both fighters brought to the table. No one had been able to solve the long reach and unorthodox striking of Jones to date, and few had been able to deal with the in-and-out, pinpoint striking that Machida brought to the table.

Coming into his UFC 140 match up against former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida, current champ Jon Jones indicated that the puzzle that was once Machida was perhaps no more.

Jon jones vs lyoto machida:

Referee John McCarthy is the third man in the cage for this 205-pound title bout, with judges Sal D’Amato, Richard Bertrand and Jeff Blatnick scoring at cageside should it go the distance. Jones crouches in his corner and, just as in his last bout, crawls to the center of the Octagon to meet Machida.

The champion quickly stands and assumes the orthodox stance against southpaw Machida, who circles the outside slowly. Machida bounces out of the way of Jones’ long punches and turning kicks. Jones changes to southpaw and thuds a kick off Machida’s lead leg. Machida comes inside and stumbles as the men get tangled up, then circles out. Jones lands another leg kick, but this time Machida comes over the top with a counter left.

Machida winds up on a left hand and charges in, doesn’t find his mark. The Brazilian is doing well to slip Jones’ rangy kicks, then he steps in the pocket and cracks the champ with a hard left. Jones airmails a right and Machida makes him pay with a pair of punches. Another flurry has “Bones” stumbling backward, though more off-balance than injured.

Frank Mir vs Minotauro Nogueira:

Nogueira pushes forward with punches, ducks one from Mir and gets an underhook against the fence. The Brazilian uses his free right hand to sock Mir with short shots until Mir spins him around. Mir scores with a couple nice punches to the body as they spin along the fence and Nogueira answers with inside knees.

Mir trips his man to the canvas and Nogueira uses underhooks to pop back up. Nogueira puts Mir’s back on the fence and drills him with a pair of hard, level elbows and a knee up the middle. A right hand behind the ear has Mir on wobbly legs against the cage and Nogueira goes to finish on the floor. Ref Herb Dean warns Nogueira of striking to the back of the head, and “Minotauro” changes to an anaconda choke.

Mir reverses to top position, Nogueira nearly takes his back, and Mir latches on a nasty kimura. Nogueira sits up and it looks like he’ll be able to roll free, but Mir impressively stays on top. Mir wrenches the kimura one more time, and that’s all it takes. The submission comes at 3:38 of round one and Nogueira’s arm looks badly broken.
