UFC 159 PosterFrom the first strike thrown to UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones’ awkward victory speech with a broken toe in tow, last weekend’s lineup for UFC 159 was interesting to say the least. The card featured some solid stoppages, a handful of hard-fought efforts, and more than a few freakish, unfortunate occurrences.

Highlights from the fun, as well as backstage look at the headlining bout between Jones and Chael Sonnen, were recently slapped together by the UFC in order to give the public a glimpse they might not otherwise see.
