UFC 259 is in the books and it saw three title fights, with one of them controversially changing hands. Israel Adesanya lost his bid to become a two-division champion against Jan Blachowicz in the headliner.

As for the other two title bouts, Amanda Nunes somewhat predictably picked up another easy win, while Petr Yan looked to be on his way to a spectacular performance, before landing a blatant illegal knee that cost him his title. While he clearly did not want to win the belt in that manner, Aljamain Sterling is now the new UFC bantamweight champion after a disqualification.

Here’s a quick twitter thread with a brief recap and analysis of the event, that’s fitting for people’s social media era attention spans:
