UFC 145 Jones Vs. Evans Results: Full Preliminary Card Results

The preliminary card for UFC 145 in Atlanta is in the books. The entire preliminary card was underwhelming and every fight but the last went to a decision. That last match, however, nearly made up for the sloppy and often boring fights leading up to it.

In a heavyweight bout, Travis Browne took on Chad Griggs. Browne manhandled Griggs right from the outset, brutalizing him with strikes and tossing his opponent around like a rag doll. In the first round, he landed a huge knee to the head, grounded Griggs and took his back before sinking in an arm triangle for the submission victory. It is definitely an early candidate for submission of the night (and not just because it is the only submission so far).

Here are the full results of the preliminary card as the main PPV gets underway:
