Jon Jones put himself back atop the 205-pound division Saturday night, finishing top contender Alexander Gustafsson in the third round at UFC 232. After having the light heavyweight title stripped from his waist due to a failed drug test, Jones became champion once more with the stoppage victory.
In the co-main event, Amanda Nunes made history by knocking out Cris Cyborg to win the featherweight belt. Nunes entered the contest as the UFC's female bantamweight champion, becoming the first female two-division titleholder and just the third UFC fighter all-time to wear multiple titles at the same time.
The card, which was moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles earlier this week due to issues getting Jones licensed for the fight, also featured a submission win by Michael Chiesa over Carlos Condit, a second round TKO victory for Alexander Volkanovski vs. Chad Mendes, Megan Anderson earning a victory vs. Cat Zingano and Ryan Hall submitting BJ Penn.
