Amanda Nunes won in spectacular fashion.A two-division champion on a nine-fight winning streak, Nunes (18-4) remained the pound-for-pound ruler of her sport with her usual devastating flair.Jones (25-1) had much more trouble with Santos (21-7), who nearly scrapped his way to victory despite injuring his left knee early in the fight.Jorge Masvidal knocked out previously unbeaten Ben Askren with a sensational flying knee just 5 seconds into their bout on a card peppered with jaw-dropping finishes until Jones' decision.Nunes took a few minutes to find her groove against Holm, who famously knocked out Ronda Rousey with a head kick nearly four years ago. When Nunes felt comfortable, she unleashed a sophisticated array of strikes and eventually caught Holm with a kick that sent her straight to the canvas.Nunes completed the knockout with punches, sending Holm to her fifth loss in seven fights.After her fourth successful bantamweight defense, Nunes said she wanted to defend the 145-pound belt next. Santos landed several significant strikes in the first round, but Jones briefly floored the challenger with a big kick in the second.
