Jones (24-1) defends his title against the 35-year-old Santos (21-6) who has reinvented himself as a light heavyweight after starting his career in middleweight. Although Santos has a puncher’s chance and is on a bit of a hot streak entering Saturday night’s main event, Jones is still the clear-cut favorite to retain his title.
Also on the main card, Jorge Masvidal takes on Ben Askren in a welterweight bout, Luke Rockhold fights Jan Blachowicz in another light heavyweight fight, and it will be Diego Sanchez vs. Michael Chiesa in a welterweight showdown.
Also on the main card for the night, Women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes puts her belt on the line as she takes on Holly Holm in the co-main event. Nunes, like Jones in the main event, is the clear-cut favorite, especially as Holm is just 2-4 in her last six bouts.
