The Ultimate Fighter winner Tony Ferguson proved he belonged by re-breaking the jaw of veteran Aaron Riley to pick up his second straight UFC win at UFC 135. Ferguson caught Riley with a shattering uppercut in the mid-point of the first round. He followed up with more strikes but couldn't finish Riley.

Unfortunately, Riley's jaw had been broken before and he knew exactly what was happening. Riley told his corner, including Greg Jackson, that his jaw was broken and the fight was done. 

Ferguson, who won the reality show at welterweight, looked sharp at 155lbs and battered Riley with sharp boxing and had no problem staying free to fight at range. It will be interesting to see if Ferguson will get much air time on Fox since he's a Spike TV era guy. Sadly for Ferguson there won't be anymore UFC's on Spike TV.

After the fight Ferguson talked about the move to 155lbs, "I didn't like it at first because I like my cakes and pies at 170. But I feel great at this weight.

"I'm happy but I didn't get a chance to show you everything I've got but I'm still excited about this win," Ferguson said.
