In the main event from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Jones defeated Evans by unanimous decision after out-striking the former champion for the duration of the bout. Jones used his length to pick apart Evans, utilizing a number of key elbows and kicks to slowly wear Evans down. While Evans hit a couple of punches and a good head kick in the bout, Jones was never in real danger.

According to oddsmakers, Jones had odds of -505 to win Saturday’s bout, which means a $505 wager on Jones will pay out an additional $100.

In the co-main event, Rory MacDonald defeated Che Mills by second round TKO. MacDonald, who is only 22, survived an early striking storm from Mills and scored a takedown to turn the tide. Once MacDonald got the fight to the ground, he unleashed a flurry of punches and elbows that left Mills bloody and battered. In the second round, a fatigued Mills put up little fight, and MacDonald continued his ground and pound to earn the stoppage. MacDonald had odds of -500 to beat Mills, which means a wager of $500 on MacDonald will pay out an additional $100
