Both Jon Jones and Amanda Nunes added to their case for being called the Greatest of All Time, though one more impressively than the other.

In the co-main event, Nunes kept the bantamweight title wrapped firmly around her waist, demolishing Holly Holm with a first-round head kick. Things were a little hairier in the main event though as Jon Jones was only able to squeak out a split-decision win over Thiago Santos, despite Santos injuring his knee early in the fight.

Below is how the pros reacted to the two title fights and the rest of the wild action from UFC 239.
