Grasso is now the first Mexican-born women’s champion in UFC history and one of three current UFC champions from Mexico. In his analysis, Marc Raimondi puts Grasso’s and Bo Nickal’s wins in perspective, while Brett Okamoto talks about what’s next for the new champions and other standouts on the card.
The UFC had already announced that Stipe Miocic would be next to fight Jones in July, but it remains to be seen whether he can challenge Jones, who is widely regarded as the greatest of all time.
Jon Jones is the G.O.A.T?
Jon Jones, widely regarded as the greatest mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter of all time, has added to his legacy by claiming the UFC heavyweight championship after defeating Ciryl Gane with a guillotine choke at UFC 285.
It was Jones’ first fight since February 2020 and his first in the heavyweight division after moving up from the light heavyweight division, which he had dominated for years.
The victory leaves no doubt that Jones is still the king of the octagon, having set numerous UFC records including longest unbeaten streak and victories in title fights. The win sets up a potential bout with Stipe Miocic, the most successful heavyweight fighter in UFC history.
