Jones probably turned it up like crazy because of that injury. He knew the risk of losing if the round ended so he poured it on to get a stoppage win.

Good win for the champ. Stoppage might have been a little early, but Sonnen seemed okay with it. He seemed to hint at retirement as well.

Crazy how Jones out wrestled him so easily. Size was a factor in this fight.

Sonnen was robbed. And I consider him the uncrowned MW and LHW Champion.

It was a bad stoppage. But to think about it, it was crazy to think Sonnen might won due to injury should this fight went to the 2nd. And given Sonnen condition, he have what it takes to survive to the 2nd for sure.

I am starting to get annoyed by some of the early stoppages lately. One thing that makes MMA great is guys surviving to make awesome comebacks but the refs aren't giving the guys the chances anymore.

Good thing Big Nog is pretty much retired now because he could never be successful with these refs nowadays.

yeah, the refs drive me nuts in this "sport"

Still, the better fighter won, in this case.
