UFC 239 is set to provide stunning entertainment for fans around the world with two world title belts up for grabs on the night.


Jon Jones will be challenged by Thiago Santos for the Light Heavyweight Championship while Amanda Nunes will hope to defend her Women’s Bantamweight Championship against Holly Holm.

Jones remains undefeated since his only professional loss in December 2009 and will hope to hang on to his title when he steps into the Octagon with Santos.

Nunes is enjoying an eight-fight win streak including three defences of her Bantamweight title.

Holm has endured a rough patch in her career, losing four out of six fights since her iconic victory over Ronda Rousey in 2015.

The main card is bristling with talent beyond the two world title fights with other bouts including Jorge Masvidal’s showdown with Ben Askren.
