UFC 239: Jon Jones vs Thiago Santos - How to Watch
By Jeff Weisinger
One of the greatest fighters of all time puts his heavyweight title on the line as Jon Jones takes on Thiago Santos at UFC 239 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Saturday night.
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.
