01 Jan UFC full fight video: Jon Jones chokes out Lyoto Machida to defend title
Watch Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida full fight video to see Jones pick up his second successful defense of the light heavyweight championship with a submission of Machida at UFC 140 on Dec. 10, 2011, in Toronto.
Jones was coming off of dominant title fight wins over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Quinton Jackson, but the elusive Machida was thought to be his most difficult challenge yet. “The Dragon” proved to be a tough test for Jones in the opening round, but the then-24-year-old Jones solved the puzzle in round two, snatching Machida’s neck and choking him unconscious. In a frightening scene, Machida collapsed limp against the octagon fence as Jones marched away in triumph.
The win was part of a UFC light heavyweight record eight straight successful defenses for Jones.
