Dana White On Brock Lesnar, The Rock's Touching Gift To His Mother

Jon Jones celebrating after his victory over Alexander Gustafsson during their UFC 232 event in Inglewood California on Dec 29 2018

Jon "Bones" Jones and Alexander Gustafsson will rematch in the main event for the vacant light heavyweight championship.

The fact that bantamweight champion Nunes did that was jaw-dropping in its own right, but how she did was even more wonderful.

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. He has denied knowingly taking performance-enhancing substances.

UFC President Dana White told TSN that he was "highly confident" that Kamaru Usman would face welterweight champion Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 this March at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

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. "I have nothing against Daniel Cormier, I'm up 2-0, so to go up to heavyweight and take what's his, I've never challenged any other heavyweight, I've got no reason to challenge DC". "I'm thinking, 'I'm going to be fast, I'm going to move my head, and I know I'm going to get a knockout"'.

For the third straight fight, Jon Jones has won a UFC title.

"Come get a taste, I'm here".

It's hard to imagine just what that would be outside of a rematch with Nunes, even if the women's bantamweight champ finished Cyborg in less than a minute. "It will be waiting right here".

Cormier vs. Jones seems like the most logical fight to make but Cormier has been adamant about wanting more stringent drug testing if that fight is booked.

The first example is when Chris Weidman knocked Anderson Silva out at UFC 162 in July 2013 to become the middleweight champion in one of the biggest upsets in UFC history. That would be best case!

"I know there's a guy who's been calling himself the champ-champ", Jones said in his post-fight interview.

Not only is she now the first UFC two-division women's champion, but she has knocked both Ronda Rousey and Cris Cyborg -two of the greatest female mixed martial artists - out cold...in the first round!

The victory makes Nunes, 30, the first female fighter to win UFC titles in multiple weight classes.

Gustafssson derided Jones as a cheater and said he'd beat him anyway, but Jones expertly controlled the distance and Gustafsson had little success with his strikes.
