On Saturday, July 6, the UFC will host UFC 239: Jones vs. Santos from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
In the night’s main event, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defends his belt against Brazilian knockout artist Thiago Santos. After reclaiming the 205-pound strap in December with a knockout of Alexander Gustafsson, Jones was in action in March, dominating Anthony Smith over five rounds at UFC 235. Santos enters the match-up having won four straight, including three straight since moving up in weight late last year. “Marreta” has scored 15 knockouts in his 21 career victories.
The co-main event also features gold on the line as women’s featherweight and bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes takes on former bantamweight titleholder Holly Holm.
The action kicks off at 6:15 p.m. ET with three fights streaming on ESPN+. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight main card airing on ESPN+ pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
