Jon Jones defended his belt

Jon Jones defeated  Thiago Santos by split decision. It was a close fight, Santos was able to execute his game plan and attack Jones legs, especially left leg which was working fine. In the second round he twisted his knee by throwing the low kick which slowed down his movement. After the fight he said: “something moved in my knee, i could not move anymore…”

Jon Jones was also focusing on his legs after he saw what happened to Santos knee.Jones was able to drop Santos with an elbow but Santos recovered well. Jones was the one who was creating the pressure but Santos did counter couple of times with haymakers which actually landed on Jones body and chin. At the end win goes to Jones by split decision

Oh my goodness, boy was he tough. He’s best chance to win this fight was by the knockout, i played it smart.
