UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (17-1) says Lyoto Machida (18-3) hit him harder than anyone else. "The Dragon" clashed with Jones in December 2011, losing via front chancery choke late in the second round - the champ's favourite finish of his career. But in the first round, Machida hit Jones with a straight left flush on the jaw. At today's UFC Fight Club Q&A, he said it was the hardest shot he'd ever taken.
"Hardest hitter, I would have to say Lyoto Machida caught me flush. He caught me pretty good."
