UFC 140 Results, Bonuses, And Payouts

Jon Jones capped what many believe to be the best year any mixed martial artist has ever had with another impressive victory over Lyoto Machida at UFC 140. Jones seemed to be baffled by Machida's striking style during the first round as Machida tagged Jones with some shots and won the round in the eyes of many.

In the second round Jones went back to being Jones. He cut Machida early in the second round with an elbow to Machida's forehead, and then preceded to finished Machida with a standing guillotine choke put Machida to sleep. When Jones let go of the choke, Machida crumpled to the ground, limp. 

"Submission of the Night" went to heavyweight Frank Mir. Mir was rocked early by Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira but while on the ground he quickly transitioned into a kimura choke. When Nogueira refused to tap, Mir snapped the arm of Nogueira, ending the fight. X-Rays tweeted out from the UFC revealed a brake in Nogueira's humours (upper-arm bone). 

One of the Nogueira brothers was successful as "Little Nog" defeated Tito Ortiz by knockout in the first round. Nogueira put Ortiz down with a knee to the body. Ortiz covered up on the ground and survived for a while, but was put away with continuos body shots from Nogueira. Ortiz has asked Dana White if he can finish out his contract with the UFC which has one fight left on it. 

"Knockout of the Night" went to Chan Sung Jung (The Korean Zombie). Zung knockout out Mark Hominick in seven seconds, tying the UFC record for quickest knockout. Hominick swung first, but Zung ducked under the shot and delivered a counter right that dropped Hominick and quickly ended his night. "Fight of the Night" was awarded to Jone Jones and Lyoto Machida. Each bonus was reportedly $75,000.

Tito Ortiz Aims To Continue Career Resurgence At UFC 140

Six months ago Tito Ortiz was fighting for his pride, his family and most importantly his job. Ortiz was fighting Arizona resident Ryan Bader at UFC 132 back in July. Ortiz had not won a fight since 2006 and UFC President Dana White had said this was his last shot in the UFC.

Ortiz responded with one of the best wins of his UFC career, a first round "Submission of the Night" victory over Bader to save his career.

Ortiz then filled in for an injured Phil Davis against Rashad Evans at UFC 133 in August. Although he lost, Ortiz put up a valiant effort against a top light heavyweight with less than a month to prepare. 

Tito Ortiz is one of those fighters that help put the UFC on the map. Along with Chuck Liddel and Randy Couture, Ortiz is a legend in the sport. Ortiz began his MMA career in 1997 at UFC 13. He has fought all but one of his 26 professional fights in the Octagon. 

Ortiz is 16-9-1 in his storied career. I say storied because he won the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship in 1999 and defended it a record five times before losing it to Couture in 2003. With a 2002 victory over Ken Shamrock, Ortiz broke the UFC record for most light heavyweight title defenses (5). 

Starting in 2006 Ortiz hit a rough spot in his career. Dealing with injuries and feuding with Dane White, Ortiz had a stretch in his career that saw him leave the Octagon without a victory five straight times, going 0-4-1.

To his defense, Ortiz fought some of the best light heavyweights ever during that stretch: Chuck Liddel, Rashad Evans, Lyoto Machida, Forrest Griffin and Matt Hamill. Four of those fighters were UFC Light Heavyweight Champion at some point in their career. 

Ortiz faces Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 140 this Saturday night. Ortiz has seen it all during his time in the UFC. He has had his ups and downs. He was once champion, and he was once released from the UFC. He now looks to win the UFC Light Heavyweight Title again, and the road to the title begins this Saturday night against Nogueira.
