"He exploited a hole in my game, and that's something that won't be there next time".

Until Jones' tactical victory, UFC 239 was all about violence.

Welterweight contender Masvidal spectacularly handed Askren the first loss of his MMA career with a jaw-dropping flying knee that knocked out the former Bellator and ONE world champion right at the start of their eagerly-anticipated main card grudge match.

Also on the main card, Jorge Masvidal takes on Ben Askren in a welterweight bout, Luke Rockhold fights Jan Blachowicz in another light heavyweight fight, and it will be Diego Sanchez vs. She had the most iconic one in UFC history, when she shocked Ronda Rousey with that variety of knockout almost four years ago. The bantamweight caught Pérez looking to throw a kick and swiftly landed a right to Pérez's head, putting him out.

Nunes defended her bantamweight title in style, winning courtesy of a brutal head kick.

And never one to be shy to pose with her gold while in various states of undress, Nunes shared an image of herself on social media after the bout in which she showered with her two strategically-placed straps hiding her modesty. "But there will be somebody next".

After the fight, pound-for-pound superstar Jones said: "Oh my goodness, boy was he tough".

Jones: "We all knew Thiago's best chance was to knock me out. I played it smart".

"Thiago Santos is a black belt in muay Thai so I am proud of myself". He landed at least 92 significant strikes in the first six of those fights, but on Saturday he landed only 59 of 90 (65 percent); Santos landed 43 of 166 (25 percent).

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.

"So when I'm done with Stipe and Dana opens up the book and goes this is what you guys are getting paid, then you guys may get a third fight". "Yeah, absolutely I'd be willing to fight Stipe, as well", he said. The champ found his rhythm midway through the fight, but still competed cautiously and didn't even attempt a late takedown of his hobbling opponent.

The Brazilian was the aggressor early, taking the opening round thanks in large part to the brutal inside leg kicks he inflicted on Jones, who needed help to leave the Octagon after the fight. "We were playing a very high-level game of chess in there".
