UFC 232 results: Jon Jones regains gold, Amanda Nunes KOs Cyborg


In a fight that bore no real resemblence to their first classic encounter, Jon Jones claimed the vacant UFC light heavyweight title at Saturday's UFC 232 with a third round TKO win over Alexander Gustafsson.

Jones hit a takedown early in the third round and landed some big elbows, eventually transitioning to Gustafsson's back where he unloaded some powerful left handed punches to his head that he wasn't defending with the end coming at 2:02 of the round. 

With the win, Jones passed Chuck Liddell for the most wins in the division's history (17) while he tied Liddell for the most finishes in the division's history (10).

After the fight, a somewhat subdued Jones called out Daniel Cormier and told him to "come get his belt back".

In the co-main event, bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes moved up to featherweight and knocked out champion Cris 'Cyborg' Justino in less than a minute to become the first ever women's "champ champ", ending Justino's run of dominance face planted on the mat.

The slugfest went just 51 seconds with Nunes getting the best of the action, landing power rights that hurt Justino and eventually throwing one that put her face first on the canvas in an incredible scene.

Justino is owed one more fight before March or she becomes a free agent while the UFC will have to now figure how whether Nunes will continue to hold both belts, something they just dealt with when Daniel Cormier held the light heavyweight and heavyweight titles.
