It’s a championship doubleheader to cap off International Fight Week as Jon Jones makes his second title defense of 2019 against power-punching light heavyweight contender Thiago Santos. But before “Bones” can try to break “Maretta,” Amanda Nunes returns to the cage to put her 135-pound strap on the line opposite former women’s bantamweight champion, Holly Holm. In addition, Ben Askren takes on Jorge Masvidal for the next crack at the welterweight title.
