Jones earned a thrilling decision in 2013 over Gustafsson, who tested the champion to the limits of his ability.

Then, in the main event, Jon Jones TKO'd Alexander Gustafsson in the third round to reclaim the light heavyweight belt.

Dana White discussed Brock Lesnar's future in the wake of Jon Jones' UFC 232 title win, which could have implications for Lesnar vs. Daniel Cormier.

The former title contender also didn't shoot down the possibility of moving up to heavyweight after UFC 232.

Jones reclaimed the belt he never lost inside the octagon as he returned to the top of the sport following a turbulent week that saw him under suspicion once again after a pre-fight drug test registered an abnormality stemming from a failed test in July 2017.

As a result, the UFC made the controversial decision to move the entire event from Las Vegas to Los Angeles on short notice.

It's now Gustafsson's third UFC title defeat, and his second loss to Jones. "I said, 'This is for the title. When she connected with a couple punches, I said [to myself] that I'm going to just walk forward".

As the crowd roared, Jones added with a grin, "Daddy's home, D.C".

Cyborg was scrambling attempt to circle around Nunes to create space but an uppercut and that overhand right later, it was all over. "I'll be waiting right here". Yet it was the shocking manner in which she accomplished it that may have won the UFC's first female two-division champion something more. California officials agreed, allowing Jones to fight in Inglewood after Nevada demanded more answers in a hearing in January. "We do that I'll be back at 205!"

In quite the upset, Nunes knocked out Justino in just 51 seconds. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Amanda Nunes has cemented her place as the greatest female fighter in UFC history by becoming the first woman to hold two titles simultaneously with a first-round finish of Cris Cyborg.

Earlier in the night, British bantamweight Nathaniel Wood produced an impressive performance to beat American Andre Ewell via third-round rear-naked-choke submission.

"Nothing was going to stop me from what I wanted to do tonight", Nunes said.
