UFC 145 Fight Card: Pros React to Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Just like that, a year worth of hype is behind us.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defeated former friend and training partner Rashad Evans via unanimous decision at UFC 145 on Saturday night at the sold-out Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA, putting to bed a rivalry that had become one of the UFC's most prevalent storylines since the pair's notorious split.

While it may not have been as spectacular of a performance as we're used to seeing from the champ, it was an unquestionably dominant one that left many of Jones' contemporaries flooding to Twitter to sing his praises and wonder aloud if he would ever stumble. (Also, Dan Hardy apparently wasn't impressed. So there's that.)
