Jon Jones reaffirmed his status as the world’s preeminent 205-pound fighter in September, as the 24-year-old wunderkind snuffed out tough ex-champ Quinton Jackson with a fourth-round rear-naked choke. At 135 pounds, it was Dominick Cruz who remained the man to beat with a convincing unanimous decision over top contender Demetrious Johnson.
Also at 135, world-ranked flyweight Alexis Vila authored one of the more stunning results in recent memory by destroying Bellator featherweight champ Joe Warren to advance in the company’s fifth-season bantamweight tournament.
In another upset shocker, skyrocketing welterweight Jake Ellenberger laid waste to former Strikeforce champ Jake Shields in their Sept. 17 duel. As a result, the Nebraskan enters our 170-pound rankings for the first time.view original article >>
