Pros and media members alike also voiced their opinions on Jon Jones’ close titel fight with Thiago Santos. The Brazilian did enough to win on one of the judges scorecards.

Amanda Nunes knocked Holly Holm out in the first round, for many cementing her status as the greatest female MMA fighter of all time.
