A historic night in Inglewood ended with two new UFC champions.
Jon Jones retook the light heavyweight throne that he long reigned over with a masterful third-round knockout of Alexander Gustafsson on Saturday in the main event of UFC 232, and in an absolutely stunning turn of events, Amanda Nunes destroyed Cris Cyborg in just 51 seconds to become the first two-division women’s champion in UFC history.
Check out reactions from those two performances below, plus the best of the rest for UFC 232 from a wild night at The Forum.
JON JONES DEF. ALEXANDER GUSTAFSSON

Ref Mike Beltran ain't taking any shit lol— James Vick (@JamesVickMMA) December 30, 2018
But seriously tho, I gotta take my hat off to @JonnyBones. To still be able to perform under that amount of pressure is incredible— Kevin MTP Lee (@MoTownPhenom) December 30, 2018
Jon Jones is the best artist of violence to ever paint the @ufc canvas. As with so many artists, their tortured life out side their passion is part of their myth and allure. He is literally a constant self making renaissance. #vangold #unbroken #ever #andstill #UFC232— The Mane Event™ (@EliasTheodorou) December 30, 2018
Nunes vs Jones— Chase Sherman (@ChaseShermanUFC) December 30, 2018
DAMNNNNNN!!! A focused Jon Jones, is one dangerous mofo!!! That guy has ALL the talent in the world!! I hope he can stay clear of anymore distractions to finish his career strong, in the eyes on the fans. #UFC232— Aljamain Sterling (@FunkMaster_UFC) December 30, 2018
Victory!!! Albuquerque has a belt again https://t.co/7Yv08qY3pq— Diego Sanchez UFC (@DiegoSanchezUFC) December 30, 2018
Honestly I don't wanna see DC vs Jones again. Jones has already won twice and with the controversy of the failed test it doesn't make sense for DC to fight him again when he's already said he was retiring soon. He should retire as a 2 division World champion and a great legacy— James Vick (@JamesVickMMA) December 30, 2018
@dc_mma please don’t even consider fighting Jones again. You are the CHAMP CHAMP clean for an entire career and you are the man. If somebody has to cheat to beat you they will never deserve the rematch— Sam Alvey (@smilensam) December 30, 2018
Dirty! That’s all— tim means (@MeansTim) December 30, 2018

MICHAEL CHIESA DEF. CARLOS CONDIT
