UFC 135: Jon Jones vs. Rampage Jackson full results live gate/attendance, medical suspensions, bonuses and fighter salaries

I love spotify, and pandora, just saying. When I drink and take my medicine, music just makes me feel good. Kinda like a good MMA show does. I’m all broken, years of BMX, Mountain Biking, Martial Arts, Skateboarding, Surfing, Snowboarding and fast women has taken it’s toll on my 36 year old body. I don’t move like a I used to, don’t heal like I used to and all the titanium in my arm makes me a great weather predictor, but a horrible sports participant. I now live vicariously through others. It’s why me and the MMABadass.com work together, we understand the others pain, physical and mental.

Rampage Jackson experienced a bit of that this weekend. Physical and mental pain, all delivered by Jon Jones, in a very Mike Tyson kind of way. Rampage admitted he was awed by Jones and couldn’t implement his game plan. Then Ben Rothwell faced a similar experience while facing Mark Hunt, as did Gomi and Hughes. UFC 135 was a solid card top to bottom.
