Rochester Native is MMA Champion
Rochester native and MMA star Jon "Bones" Jones is still the light heavyweight champion.
He took on former champion Vitor Belfort at UFC 152 Saturday night.
Jones went into the match-up as a favorite, but had quite a scare as Belfort came out strong in the first round. Jones was able to get back into it in the third round as Belfort's striking fell short.
Belfort finally fell victim to an Americana submission 54 seconds into the fourth round.
Jones improves to 17 and one.
