UFC 239 is coming to Las Vegas and has a pair of much-anticipated fights on the card. The main event of the card sees Jon Jones defend his Light Heavyweight title against Thiago Santos. The co-main event is for the Women Bantamweight title, as Amanda Nunes defends her title against Holly Holm.
For most of his MMA career, Jon Jones (24-1-0) was considered one of the best fighters on the planet but he spent a great deal of the past few years sitting out under a suspension. However, when Jones returned, he proved his dominance, winning the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight title from Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232. The fight against Thiago Santos (21-6-0) is his second title defense.
The co-main event is for the Women Bantamweight title with Amanda Nunes (17-4) defending her title against Holly Holm (12-4). Nunes is the first woman in UFC history to hold a title in two different weight classes, as she won the Featherweight title from Cris Cyborg at UFC 232. Nunes won her Bantamweight title from Miesha Tate in 2016. Tate won the title from Holm.
There is a total of seven fights on the main UFC 239 card.
AXS has tickets available for UFC 239 (Tickets). The card, which is headlined by Jon Jones vs. Thiago Santos and Amanda Nunes vs. Holly Holm takes place on Saturday, July 6, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
