Two-Division Champ Amanda Nunes Plans on Defending Featherweight Crown Next

Two-Division Champ Amanda Nunes Plans on Defending Featherweight Crown Next

American Jones remained unbeaten since 2009, but he was stretched to the limit by his Brazilian challenger in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

34-year-old Masvidal, who registered a brutal KO against Darren Till in March, stopped "Gamebred" with a flying right knee after five seconds of the first round.

UFC president Dana White reiterated his stance that Nunes ranks among the greatest MMA fighters ever, putting her alongside the likes of Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre and Jon Jones.

Former middleweight campaigner Santos, 35, had earned his shot at light heavyweight gold with an impressive hat-trick of stoppage wins after moving up to the 205lb division.

Thiago Santos put on an unbelievable display of courage, fighting more than four full rounds with a badly injured left leg against a guy widely regarded as the best ever in his sport.

Holm is a veteran boxer and kickboxer who upset Ronda Rousey to win the bantamweight belt, but Nunes is on another level than every 135-pounder before her.

Jones did enough to convince two of the three judges that he won the contest, but it was far from resounding.

The Turkish economy shrank sharply for the second straight quarter in early 2019, amid soaring inflation and unemployment. Turkey's currency hit record lows in the past year, which has the effect of raising the prices for many everyday items.

After Holm tried to throw a right kick out of the southpaw stance, Nunes fired a kick that hit Holm flush in the face.

"We all knew Thiago's best chance was to knock me out".

Masvidal authored one of the most dramatic knockouts in UFC history when he destroyed Askren (19-1), a high-level wrestler in his second UFC fight after a prosperous career in other promotions.

"I told my coaches I wanted to knock her out the same way she knocks people out, " Nunes said. I did it tonight.

Amanda Nunes added another former champion's scalp to her ever-growing list of vanquished foes. "Now, I've beaten her and I'm very happy".

Nunes (17-4) said that she next wanted to defend her featherweight belt to become the only UFC champion to defend two titles while holding them concurrently. In year's past, UFC events capping off International Fight Week have been drowned in disappointment in some form or fashion, but this year everything held together to eventually give us what will go down as one of the more memorable PPV cards of the year.

Chiesa (16-4) dominated on the ground and with strikes to improve to 2-0 as a welterweight.
