On July 6th, UFC 239 takes center stage in Las Vegas as Jon Jones and Thiago Santos face off for the UFC light heavyweight belt.
Following the highlighted fight, there will be a lineup of bouts including Amanda Nunes against Holly Holm for the women's bantamweight title, along with Jorge Masvidal versus Ben Askren.
