Jon “Bones” Jones received plenty of accolades for beating Chael Sonnen by TKO during the first round of their UFC 159 main event, despite dealing with a disgusting broken toe.  But one honor that he would not receive on Saturday night was “Knockout of the Night.”

That award went to Roy “Big Country” Nelson, who landed a big overhand right directly on the chin of Cheick Kongo 2:03 into the first round of their bout, earning him his third consecutive first-round knockout victory.
