Jon Jones makes winning return to UFC with TKO win over Alexander Gustafsson

In Saturday's co-main event, Amanda Nunes scored a devastating first-round knockout win over fellow Brazilian Cris Cyborg to add the featherweight title to her bantamweight crown, becoming the first woman to hold two UFC belts simultaneously. As Justino looked to aggressively move forward, Nunes dropped her to a knee with a right hand. The victory makes Nunes the first female fighter in UFC to hold multiple belts concurrently - a distinction that certainly helps her build a case as a GOAT-level performer in the sport. "My coach told me that when I hit her the first time, it would make her insane and want to come get me". "It's the moment I've waited for my whole life", said Nunes, who also asked UFC President Dana White to put her in the promotion's Hall of Fame. The one name that kept popping up after her fight was Shevchenko, but Nunes scoffed at the notion of a third fight with "Bullet". But even with "Lioness" being aware of her own considerable power, she admitted at the post-fight press conference that she was a bit surprised at how easy it was against "Cyborg".

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.

Nunes improves to a 17-4-0 record, going 5-0 in the UFC. "When she connected with a couple of punches, I just said, 'I'm going to walk right through her'".

This may have been one of the most highly anticipated bouts in UFC women's history. What I think happens is that he's in a very unique position, because he can play this thing between UFC and WWE.

'[The] Belt for me has always been symbolic, the most important is to be a champion in the lives of people making a difference in this world!

"This is a great feeling", said Jones, who took back the title he lost after failing a drug test following his rematch with heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.

"Daddy's home DC, prove to the fans that you're the "champ champ". Come get a taste. Nunes landed and Cyborg went down but got back up.
