UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones proved that he is at another level from the rest of the division by battering and finishing Quinton "Rampage" Jackson by submission (rear naked choke) at 1:14 of the fourth round. After the fight, a humbled Jackson proclaimed Jones "for real" and said "the kid had me mesmerized."

Jones used his enormous reach advantage to dictate 100% of the fight. Poor Quinton's only offense of the first round was a medium feeble knee to the body. This after taking an array of shots from Jones: elbows, front kicks, an variety of punches, jabs, hooks and knees. It was almost sad to see the legendarily fearsome Jackson acting like a mouse trapped in a cage with a snake. 

In the fourth round, Jones finally poured it on and went for the kill early enough in the round to go for a finish. The fatal choke followed shortly thereafter.
