Jones, who won the title in 2008 and then retained it twice, inflicted a horrific bruise around the Russian's right eye before flooring him near the ropes with 56 seconds left in the round.

The Panama fighter improved to 39-3 with two draws and 31 knockouts. The fight was his first since stopping Michael Marrone in November 2011.

Lebedev dropped to 25-2.
