Jon Jones thoroughly dominated Chael Sonnen to defend his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight belt for the fifth time in the main event of UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen," which went down April 27, 2013, at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
The event was the organization's fourth pay-per-view (PPV) mixed martial arts (MMA) offering of 2013 thus far, and while the show had a number of strange occurrences, overall the fights delivered what fans were hoping to see.
UFC 159 featured the aforementioned 205-pound title showdown (watch highlights here), in addition, Michael Bisping outpointed Alan Belcher to a technical decision victory (highlights here), Roy Nelson ended Cheick Kongo's night quickly by knockout and Pat Healy made a statement to the lightweight division with a third-round submission of Jim Miller.
There was plenty of combat sports action to capture at the event, which MMA shutterbug sensation Esther Lin did in photo form, snapping the 11-bout fight card from start to finish for the purpose of posterity. We've sifted through them all and shared a selection of the shots up above for your viewing pleasure.
