Jon Jones reclaims UFC title in comeback fight

Nunes & Cyborg

UFC 232 was scheduled to take place in Las Vegas, but was moved to Los Angeles when Jones ran into a licensing issue with the Nevada State Athletic Commission. "I get hit in the head and I know she wouldn't knock me out". She knocked out Cris Cyborg in the first round of their co-main event meeting.

Jon Jones punches Alexander Gustafsson in their light heavyweight title bout during the UFC 232 event inside The Forum on December 29, 2018 in Inglewood, California.

"I know there is a guy who has been calling himself Champ Champ", Jones said.

After taking the fight to the ground in the third round, Jones progressed to side control, moved towards the Swede's back and pounded him out with a burst of ground and pound. I'm here. Get your belt back, ' he told Rogan afterwards. "When she connected with a couple of punches, I just said, 'I'm going to walk right through her'". "It's the moment I've waited for my whole life", said Nunes, who also asked UFC President Dana White to put her in the promotion's Hall of Fame.

Nunes (17-4) was thought to be an undersized underdog, but she seized her second title belt by overwhelming her fellow Brazilian.

"It was always about being the champion again", Jones said. "I mean, what guy just gives up his belt because someone else made it home?" Despite a dominant eight-fight win streak and victories over current or former UFC champions Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Valentina Shevchenko (twice) and Germane de Randamie, it took until Nunes cemented herself as the greatest fighter in women's MMA history for her to truly get the shine she deserves.

Earlier, Australian featherweight prospect Alexander Volkanovski (19-1) won his 16th straight bout in the PPV opener, stopping veteran Chad Mendes with right hands in the second round of a back-and-forth bout.

Michael Chiesa fought off several submission attempts by Carlos Condit before securing his own in the second round, earning a victory via kimura. The crowd included Justino friend Halle Berry, Dolph Lundgren, David Spade, NL MVP Christian Yelich of the Milwaukee Brewers, Travis Barker, Mick Foley and Amber Valletta.
