Jones KOs Gustafsson, Nunes KOs Cyborg
I expected Jones to win but not the way he did it. He kept back peddling and circling, engaging only for a few strikes at a time. He had numerous failed takedown attempts. But he was getting in more strikes and more effective. It wasn't as exciting as their first fight when he stood toe to toe and slugged it out. But it was a decisive win and he's back on top.
I did not expect the heavy underdog Nunes to beat the shit out of Cyborg and knock her out cold in the first minute. At least it was exciting. That breaks Cyborg's dominant 20 fight win streak. I guess even the best fall sooner or later.
