By FCF Staff
Here are the results for UFC 239, which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In the main event, Jon Jones retained the light-heavyweight title, but one judge scored the bout for Thiago Santos. Although the latter appeared to incur a knee injury early into the bout, Santos threatened the champ on several occasions with big shots, but lost the competitive fight via split decision.
The co-headliner saw Amanda Nunes retain the bantamweight title by taking out Holly Holm with a head kick and punches in round one. In the highly anticipated fight between Ben Askren and Jorge Masvidal, the latter scored the quickest KO in UFC history, courtesy a flying knee.
