Jones wins in San Diego

No surprises, that Jon Jones, the rising force in the UFC light-heavyweight division, made rapid work of the ageing Vladimir Matyushenko in San Diego in the early hours.

Once in position on the ground, the Belarussian was punished over twenty devastating seconds before referee Herb Dean, the best in the business, did the 39-year-old a serious favour.

Jones had age – 16 years – on his side. He was too quick, too slick and, in truth, too spiteful for the older Octagon warrior to deal with vicious strikes

Jones should be moved to a top eight 205lb division contest with alacrity.
