Jon Jones and Dan Henderson got after it this weekend in Submission Underground 2, with Jones winning the bout.
The two took the center of the cage and started to entertain the crowd. Henderson pretends to throw his signature “H-bomb” and Jones pretends a spinning back elbow. Around the midway mark, Jones secured a takedown and controlled the match before finding an arm triangle that forced Henderson to tap at 6:39 into the contest.

The two have history as they were supposed to fight at UFC 151 in 2012 but the fight was scrapped after Henderson was forced to pull out due to injury. Jones declined a late replacement opponent and the entire card was ultimately cancelled due to not having a worthy main event.
Sonnen and Jones have history also. The two were opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 17 and fought at UFC 159 in 2013 in which Jones won by first round TKO.
In the co-main event, former UFC women’s Bantamweight champion Miesha Tate took on Jessica Eye. There was some controversy as Tate had Eye in an arm bar and the match was stopped due to submission. Eye argued that she never tapped and the match continued. The match ended after regulation and went into overtime. Neither opponent could find a submission and Tate won the contest by “escape time.”
Tate and Eye fought at UFC on Fox 16 in 2015. Tate won the fight by unanimous decision.
