UFC 159 results: Fight Night photos gallery for ‘Jones vs. Sonnen' in Newark

Check out a photo gallery from the UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen" event that took place this past Saturday night (April 27, 2013) at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

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.

Enjoy.
