Jon Jones pummels Alexander Gustafsson to reclaim light heavyweight title

"I'm here, I'll be waiting", Jones said, goading Cormier, who was relieved of the title after turning his focus towards defending the UFC heavyweight crown. "The Lioness" dispatched Cyborg, who hadn't lost since 2005, in under a minute.

The bout was stopped after the Gold coast fighter landed a left-foot kick to the right eye of her American opponent.

In one of the more anticipated UFC title bouts in recent memory, Nunes moved up a weight class to challenge fellow Brazilian Cris "Cyborg" Justino for her Featherweight belt.

Cyborg took her defeat gracefully, writing in a statement on Twitter: 'Today was not our day, but I want you to know that I am very grateful for your affection!

Jon Jones is once again a UFC champion.

Wood used his post-fight interview to request that the UFC give him a hometown fight when the octagon returns to London on March 16, 2019. The one name that kept popping up after her fight was Shevchenko, but Nunes scoffed at the notion of a third fight with "Bullet".

Jones defeated Sweden's Alexander Gustafsson on his return to the octagon following a 17-month absence, reclaiming the title he had been stripped of past year. "But soon you guys are going to know". Nunes' impressive display earned her Cyborg's featherweight championship and declarations that she is the greatest female fighter of all time.

When it ended, he called out his arch rival, heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, who surrendered the light heavyweight title on Friday so that Jones could fight Gustafsson to begin his third reign. "My coach told me that when I hit her the first time, it would make her insane and want to come get me".

"Prove to the fans you're a "champ champ", he said.

After taking the fight to the ground in the third round, Jones progressed to side control, moved towards the Swede's back and pounded him out with a burst of ground and pound.

"Come get a taste, I'm here". Let me go back home and talk to Dana White to see what he thinks.

Nunes submitted Miesha Tate in the first round to capture the bantamweight title at UFC 200 and knocked out Ronda Rousey in 48 seconds in her first title defence at UFC 207.
