This past weekend (Sat. July 6, 2019) the UFC 239 pay-per-view (PPV) took place from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the main event of the night, Jon Jones edged out the powerful Thiago Santos via split decision to retain his light heavyweight championship. Also, Amanda Nunes successfully retained her 135-pound strap when she finished Holly Holm in the co-main event, with “The Preacher’s Daughter’s” own signature head kick.

And of course, Jorge Masvidal shocked the world with the fastest knockout in UFC history, finishing Ben Askren with a flying knee in just five seconds. The UFC 239 medical suspensions have been released. Askren will be forced to sit for two months after the historic knockout.
