Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently held a special pre-fight media day for the upcoming UFC 239: “Jones vs Santos” pay-per-view (PPV) event, going down on July 6, 2019, inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Taking center stage was Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who collides with No. 1 contender Thiago Santos in “Marreta’s” first-ever championship fight. For “Bones,” this will be his third title fight in just seven months.
Watch them staredown in the embedded video above.
Also getting some media love was women’s champ-champ Amanda Nunes, who will be putting her Bantamweight title on the line against former division queen, Holly Holm. Also, Jorge Masvidal will face Ben Askren in a highly-intriguing Welterweight matchup. Unfortunately for Askren, he didn’t have anyone to face off with as “Gamebred” was a no-show.
Just heard @GamebredFighter no showed another media day. Damn I’m so far in his head he can’t even show up for work.— Ben Askren (@Benaskren) June 24, 2019

Ben Askren didn't have Jorge Masvidal to face off with... so he just made Dana White raise his arm. pic.twitter.com/W7t5I9H1BO— TheMacLife (@Maclifeofficial) June 24, 2019
