UFC 239: Jones vs. Santos fight card and bout order

Check out the fight card and bout order for UFC 239: Jones vs. Santos, which is set for July 6th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It’s International Fight Week 2019! There’s just one card this year as opposed to two or three like we’ve seen in years past, and it’s the big pay-per-view at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 6th.

The UFC 239 main event is a light heavyweight title defense for Jon Jones against the powerful Brazilian striker Thiago Santos, who’s gone from middling middleweight to top-flight light heavyweight. As for the co-main event, two-division champion Amanda Nunes puts her women’s bantamweight belt on the line against former champ Holly Holm. Other main card action includes a huge welterweight showdown between Jorge Masvidal and Ben Askren, Luke Rockhold’s LHW debut against Jan Blachowicz, and what should be a high-quality grappling affair between welterweights Diego Sanchez and Michael Chiesa.
