On Saturday, Dec. 29, the UFC hosted UFC 232: Jones vs. Gustafsson 2 from the Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

In the night’s main event, former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones returned from his second steroid suspension to rematch Sweden’s Alexander Gustafsson. The pair met previously at UFC 165 in one of the most competitive fights of Jones’s title reign. They battled for the vacant 205-pound strap, which was recently vacated by two-division titleholder Daniel Cormier — the man Jones defeated at UFC 214 prior to his failed drug test.

The evening’s co-headliner featured women’s featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino, who put her belt on the line against the promotion’s bantamweight queen, Amanda Nunes.

The 13-fight event kicked off with four prelims streaming on UFC Fight Pass at 6:15 p.m. ET. An additional four prelim bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET. The night’s five-fight main card aired live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
