UFC 159 results recap: Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen event wrap up from New Jersey

Wrapping up the UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen" event that took place on Sat., April 27, 2013, at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, featuring Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen and much, much more.


UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen" blew the roof off the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, this past Saturday night (April 27, 2013) featuring a main event of Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones asserting his dominance over Chael Sonnen in what was essentially a predetermined outcome.

Broken big toe or not.

The co-headlining attraction saw Michael Bisping defeat Alan Belcher via decision, though the bout was notable for being stopped early thanks to what was ruled an "accidental" eye poke.

The other three main card bouts saw Roy Nelson knock out Cheick Kongo with just two punches, Phil Davis pick apart Vinny Magalhaes, and Pat Healy earn two bonus awards for his submission victory over Jim Miller.

In cased you missed any or all of it -- or just want to keep the discussion alive -- below are links to all the major storylines borne from Saturday night's event in New Jersey.
