September 23rd 2012

Jon Jones won Submission of the Night for his fourth-round kimura win over Vitor Belfort in a thrilling UFC 152 main event.

Belfort brought the fight to the champion from the opening bell and he actually nearly finished the fight in the first round, latching an arm-bar onto Jones and cranking it until he heard the elbow pop.

But Jones was able to escape and, with a damaged arm, battled until the fourth round where he was able to get Belfort down and crank the kimura lock to get the finish.

‘Fight of the Night’ went to TJ Grant and Evan Dunham for a furious three rounds that saw both taking huge blows and end up covered in blood.

Knockout of the Night went to Cub Swanson, his second consecutive such award. He stopped Charles Oliveira with an overhand right in the middle of the first round after avoiding Oliveira’s efforts to take him to the floor.

All the bonus cheques were for $65,000.
