UFC 128 Results: Rashad Evans Vs. Jon Jones? Consider It Done

That didn't take long. All that had to happen was a UFC pecking order and two fighters from the same camp both at the top of their division. Keith Jardine and Rashad Evans have long been teammates in the same division, but never had to worry about fighting one another (at least post seas on two of 'The Ultimate Fighter') because they never occupied the same space in the hierarachy. Jon Jones and Evans don't have that luxury.

The date has not been announced. There is no venue. We don't know which UFC event it will be. But for the first time, meaningfully, in UFC history, high-level teammates will fight each other. As we saw tonight, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans was promised the winner of Mauricio Rua vs. Jon Jones. Jones, winning easily, now has to face his teammate.

The acknowledgment of the fight by UFC commentator Joe Rogan was icy, to put it mildly. Neither fighter seemed particularly pleased with the predicament. This moment is bigger than most realize. Just two months ago both swore they'd never fight one another. Coach Greg Jackson says he wants no part of it. But now they essentially have no choice. Evans is unwilling to move down to middleweight. Jones, surely, will not abdicate his title. They must face one another, not because of artificial pressure, but because they are on a natural collision course.

This fight will break the ice for teammate vs. teammate debates in mixed martial arts. It's not that this fight will open the flood gates to teammates (and really, we use that term so loosely) fighting one another without regard for concern. Conditions will be placed how and when these battles happen. But the prohibitive stance against them from here on out will fade.

Teammates will fight teammates. It won't be often and making it happen won't be easy. But the era when they could avoid each other in the same division is over. It ended at UFC 128. You can thank Rashad Evans' knee and Jon Jones for that paradigm shift.

The third fight at UFC 128: Shogun vs. Jones was a bantamweight (135lbs) fight between Joseph Benavidez and Ian Loveland. Benavidez was entering this fight after besting Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Wagnney Fabiano. Loveland entered the bout with an upset win UFC debut over striker Tyler Toner.

The first round was a close affair. Benavidez was customarily showing a lot of movement, but Loveland was able to put a lot of combinations together, especially late in the round. Either fighter did enough to make an argument for them.

In the second round, Benavidez was able to land a solid takedown, but Loveland - who clearly came in underrated and well prepared - was able to stand right away. The problem for Loveland late became the pace, however, and the Barn Owl measured his offense. That was enough for Benavidez to be comfortable and land more, scoring more points in the process.

In the third round, a cut appeared to be bleeding on Benavidez's forehead, although it wasn't badly bleeding. Benavidez eventually dropped Loveland with a right hand and landed in half guard. It wasn't a dominate win, but a couple of takedowns for Benavidez

In the second fight of UFC 128: Shogun vs. Jones, New Jersey's Nick Catone took on last-minute replacement and Matt Serra-student Costantinos Philippou.

This bout was contested at a catchweight of 195lbs.

In round one, Catone's wrestling took over, but not until later in the round. The two traded weak shots early until Catone forced Philippou to the cage where he eventually secured a takedown. Some nice ground and pound eventually cut Philippou open right at the end of the first round.

The second was another good round for Catone. A couple of monster knees from the clinch landed including a single leg take down. Philippou wasn't crushed in the round, but didn't score nearly as much as Catone. The layoff for Catone has so far shown in his stand-up, but hasn't stopped him from winning the first two rounds.

In the third round, it was more of the same. Catone was able to control the fight. Philippou was never really in this.

UFC 128 results: Nick Catone defeated Costantinos Philippou by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).


UFC 128 Results: Erik Koch Knocks Out Raphael Assuncao

In the first fight of UFC 128, featherweights Erik Koch and Raphael Assuncao locked horns in the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Koch was the underdog, but possesed a top notch guard and excellent, aggressive striking. Assuncao, on the other hand, is a tough, hard to put away veteran. Both were fighting for a higher spot on UFC cards.

Referee Kevin Mulhall officiated the action. After an early trade of leg kicks between both fighters, Koch even fired off a right hand that sent the Brazilian crumbling to the mat. According to Yahoo's Kevin Iole, "We may have the Knockout of the Night already." 

This represents a huge win for Koch. Assuncao is a very talented veteran with strong defensive skills. He's hard to score on and hard to damage. For Koch to put away such a respected and talented fighter says quite a bit about his future.
