Jon Jones reclaims UFC title in comeback fight

He's now a three-time UFC light-heavyweight champion, and immediately called out former kingpin Daniel Cormier who relinquished the belt prior to UFC 232.

What could have been a four-year ban ended up being reduced to 15 months after an arbitration ruling, clearing the way for Jones to headline Saturday's card, but an another issue arose last week when recent tests returned atypical findings.

However, the UFC took that title and used it to promote the fight between Nunes and Cyborg, referring to their fight as a battle to "determine the BADDEST woman on the planet!" What I think happens is that he's in a very unique position, because he can play this thing between UFC and WWE. I've failed so many times on the big stage and I know life is hard, but for the same reason you said keep standing, I'm going to keep standing up because tonight was about you.

The high-profile victories came at the end of a turbulent week for the UFC, who were forced to switch the event from Las Vegas to Los Angeles after the American was denied a license to compete in Nevada due to concerns over recent drug tests.

"Prove to the fans that you're the champ-champ". I was just not in the mood to lose, not even a verbal argument. They get right down to the wire, and I think Vince throws so much money at him that he goes "alright, I'll do it again". Or we just do more testing and neither of us fail. "We do that I'll be back at 205!"

Nunes (17-4), the UFC's bantamweight champion, made history after she fearlessly moved up 10 pounds to challenge Justino (20-2), widely considered the most accomplished female fighter in MMA.

Cyborg adds to a long list of all-time great names that Nunes has defeated in the past, including Ronda Rousey, Valentina Shevchenko, Meisha Tate and Germaine de Randamie.

Former Cage Warriors champion Wood, 25, dominated the first two rounds before finishing Ewell with 48 seconds remaining to register his second straight victory in the UFC and extend his overall winning streak to seven in a row - all by finish. "In the beginning, when I did my first MMA fight, I lost", Justino told the assembled press after UFC 232 on Saturday night.
