In Saturday's co-main event, Amanda Nunes scored a devastating first-round knockout win over fellow Brazilian Cris Cyborg to add the featherweight title to her bantamweight crown, becoming the first woman to hold two UFC belts simultaneously.

Right from the opening bell, Amanda Nunes dictated the pace, forcing Cyborg into a relentless defensive position, which culminated in her landing a stiff overhand right - putting an end to the fight with 51 seconds on the clock.

UFC fighters were blown away by Nunes' performance, and many gave her the title of greatest women's fighter of all time. "My coach told me that when I hit her the first time, it would make her insane and want to come get me".

Because of Jon Jones' win over Alexander Gustafsson last night, that also opens up the door for Jones to fight Cormier for the third time instead of Brock.

"Yeah, for sure", Nunes said when asked if she thought the fight would play out the way it did.

Cyborg had been the heavy favourite going into the fight but took her defeat graciously. He talks eventual shifted to Cormier and what Jones would like to do with his next fight. Yet it was the shocking manner in which she accomplished it that may have won the UFC's first female two-division champion something more. "But soon you guys are going to know". "Nothing was going to stop me in what I wanted to do". "But I also am smart enough to know that Gustafsson will fight his way back to the top".

The injured were taken to the nearby Haram hospital, Reuters news agency reports. "I don't remember anything after". Lan Le, 41, who was on the bus but unhurt, said they were going to see a sound and light show at the pyramids.

Yes, Nunes really is the female G.O.A.T., despite how short of a history women have had in the sport's biggest promotion.

Dana White discussed Daniel Cormier's future and a possible Cormier vs. Jon Jones fight following Saturday night's UFC 232 PPV.

'Daddy's home, DC. Prove to the fans you're the champ champ.

Volkanovski stretched his MMA win streak to 16 and UFC record to 6-0, with a second round TKO over former world title contender Chad Mendes. Come get a taste.

Jones said prior to UFC 232 that his goal was to remove any lingering doubt about his first encounter with Gustafsson. "I'm just happy with my belt, and for now I want to go back to the gym and improve my game".
