UFC 135 was on pay-per-view last night. There were only two fights that I cared about. Here are my predictions and the results:
- Josh Koscheck vs. Matt Hughes.
Prediction: Koscheck wins via ref stoppage.
Result: Koscheck won via first round KO making me 1-0 for the night.
- Jon Jones vs. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
Prediction: Jones by TKO.
Result: Jones won by 4th round submission making me 2-0 for the night.
- Matt Hughes didn’t announce his retirement after the loss. At 38, and with two consecutive first round losses, retirement sounds like the right choice. My guess is that in a few months Dana White will announce that Hughes has a new position in the UFC and will no longer fight. The word retirement may not even be used.
- Jones already has his next title defense set. He will defend against Rashad Evens.
