Jon Jones makes winning return to UFC with TKO win over Alexander Gustafsson

The results showed that the same M3 metabolite had been in Jones' body from his UFC 214 fight with Cormier in July.

A capacity crowd of 15,862 in Southern California watched another groundbreaking achievement by Nunes, the ferocious brawler who calls herself 'The Lioness'.

While both fighters came out swinging right away, Nunes delivered a poweful punch to Cyborg's chin to end the bout.

In one of the more anticipated UFC title bouts in recent memory, Nunes moved up a weight class to challenge fellow Brazilian Cris "Cyborg" Justino for her Featherweight belt.

Amanda Nunes, meanwhile, admitted she isn't sure what the future holds after her incredible defeat of Cyborg.

He tweeted UFC bantamweight champion and co-commentator Dominick Cruz: "You just said outside of all the testing stuff". Jones said in the post-fight presser that he plans to fight that ruling and get his win over Cormier reinstated.

Nunes' punching power is often too much for her male sparring partners, and she carved up Justino with astonishing ease despite a size disadvantage.

A third game will also be played with the San Siro's "curva" section - the part of the ground popular with Inter's "ultras" - closed.

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. "I mean, what guy just gives up his belt because someone else made it home?"

"I don't think you do", he said (h/t Full Contact Fighter). "My coach told me that when I hit her the first time, it would make her insane and want to come get me".

Volkanovski stretched his MMA win streak to 16 and UFC record to 6-0, with a second round TKO over former world title contender Chad Mendes.

Lifting the belt that perennial nemesis Daniel Cormier vacated 24 hours earlier, Jones invited "DC" to close out the fiercest rivalry in mixed martial arts history with the realisation of a trilogy in 2019.

The 30-year-old sent her dazed compatriot crashing to the mat as she scored a superb knockout victory in just 51 seconds, before crying tears of joy after becoming just the third UFC fighter to hold titles in two weight divisions simultaneously.

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. Nunes landed and Cyborg went down but got back up.
