Jon Jones marked his return with a win, claiming the UFC light-heavyweight championship by beating Alexander Gustafsson on Saturday.

Amanda Nunes, right, celebrates after defeating Cris Cyborg in the UFC women's featherweight mixed martial arts bout at UFC 232 in Inglewood, California.

The fight at the Forum in Inglewood, California lasted three rounds before Jones scored a takedown and finished Gustafsson with a flurry of punches to the head while mounted on his back.

The second fight between Jones and Cormier ended with a second win for Jones but the fight was overturned when Jones failed a drug test.

Although USADA deemed the "residual amounts" of the same metabolite to be consistent with the previous tests, and thus not considered intentional doping, Nevada didn't have time to investigate the matter and would not license the fight.

Oh again great punch by Nunes, man what a fight, right punch, left punch, "The Lioness" is super fast!

On July 7, 2018 at UFC 226, Lesnar returned to UFC and forcefully shoved the new champion, Daniel Cormier, after he defeated Stipe Miocic to win the UFC Heavyweight Title.

First, Jones mocked Cormier for relinquishing the title, telling UFC co-commentator Joe Rogan: "I know there's a guy who's been calling himself "champ champ". But soon you guys are going to know".

"Prove to the fans you're a "champ champ", he said. Come get a taste. Get your belt back. "It will be waiting right here".

Cormier has already said that he plans on retiring in March when he turns 40 so that fight would need to be booked soon.

Gustafssson derided Jones as a cheater and said he'd beat him anyway, but Jones expertly controlled the distance and Gustafsson had little success with his strikes. Or we just do more testing and neither of us fail. "And he texted me back that he would make this happen for me".

Nunes, the UFC's bantamweight champion, moved up 10 pounds to challenge Justino (20-2), widely considered the world's greatest female fighter.
