Jones Stops Gustafsson To Win UFC Light-Heavyweight Title

Jones Stops Gustafsson To Win UFC Light-Heavyweight Title

UFC 232 took place Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. Jones vs. Gustafsson headlined the pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

A capacity crowd of 15,862 in Southern California watched another groundbreaking achievement by Nunes, the ferocious brawler who calls herself "The Lioness". Nunes rocked "Cyborg" with a brisk left-right combination to the face at the outset and continued to shatter her opponent's equilibrium with powerful punches until it was over.

Her victory over Cyborg comes two years after defeating Rousey at UFC 207, which led to Rousey leaving MMA and transitioning into her current career as a professional wrestler. "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 buckled Justino's knees in the opening seconds, and she quickly pounced. Nunes is the first female fighter in the UFC to win titles in multiple weight classes and just the third ever to be a double-champion, joining Conor McGregor and Daniel Cormier.

Because of Jon Jones' win over Alexander Gustafsson last night, that also opens up the door for Jones to fight Cormier for the third time instead of Brock.

Cris Cyborg drops to 20-2, 1 NC MMA, 5-1 UFC, Amanda Nunes improves the score to 17-4 MMA, 10-1 UFC. "When you're ready to fight, you come back and talk to me and we'll figure something out". Nunes is now both the Featherweight and Bantamweight champion. And they get right down to the wire, and I think Vince [McMahon] throws so much money at him that he says, 'All right, I'll do [WWE] again.' Because this is here no matter what. "My coach told me that when I hit her the first time, it would make her insane and want to come get me".

Daddy's home DC.... Prove to the fans you're a champ champ. I'm here. Get your belt back, ' he told Rogan afterwards.

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.
