UFC 145 results are out and we know who won it. Meanwhile here is Jon Jones vs Rashad Evans full fight review
UFC 145 was a special fight. Not because there were two great fighters who were part of this superfight, but because there were two guys, both of whom are great fighters, they were also friends and sparring partners till sometimes ago.
The fights between friends turned foes garner more attention than two mere fighters. For them the enmity doesn’t allow them to give up and the same was visible here at Philips Arena tonight. Both Jon Jones and Rashad Evans kept going till the very end and no one gave up.
Both Jon Jones and Rashad Evans proved beyond doubt that they deserve the respect they have earned with sheer power of hard work.
Jon Jones is a rising star and Rashad Evans has been there for a very long time. But many people had written off Evans saying he was past his prime. But after the sort of fight he gave inside the octagon that stretched for as many as five rounds indicates that he still has many years of fight left in him.
In the first three rounds, the fight was absolutely equal with no one having a clear edge over the other. But later as the fight progressed Jon Jones started doing what he is known for, his kicks. He also showed that he has progressed well when it comes to wrestling too. The 24 year old champion though couldn’t win a knockout nonetheless he won by a unanimous decision.
A longtime UFC observer says that the way fight progressed it showed that any of the two could have been winner. “Boring fight neither fighter fought at their best. All the stupid hype and what a boring match Jones is good but so is Evans neither played their game cause both were intimidated. But dame give Evans his credit he rocked Jones like twice and he had Jones thinking. Either could have won. Jones showed he is great but one punch and the night could have gone Evans way. The point is neither is a loser in my book cause they both showed up and fought better than any shit talker on this stupid website”, says he.
After the match was over a jubilant Jones said, “Yeah, this was definitely my most satisfying victory…I felt like my striking was a little more elementary (than usual), I just didn’t want to make a lot of mistakes”.
