UFC 259 Results: Blachowicz, Sterling tops, Nunes made history

UFC 259 Results: Jan Blachowicz, Aljamain Sterling wins, Amanda Nunes made history.

In the main event, UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz puts his belt on the line against UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.

 Disaster struck when Sterling was down on the ground and Yan unloaded a massive knee strike that snapped his opponent’s head back and sent him crashing to the canvas. 

Just before Yan threw the knee, referee Mark Smith warned him that Sterling was a downed fighter with at least one knee on the canvas, which meant the strike was considered a deliberate foul.

And after the ringside physician came into check on him, the referee decided he could no longer allow the fight to continue. An emotional Sterling doubled over in tears on the mat, obviously overcome with emotion following the stoppage due to an illegal strike.

 Taking on former Invicta FC champion Megan Anderson in the UFC 259 co-main event, Nunes was chipping away with strikes before eventually transitioning to an armbar that bent Anderson’s elbow in the wrong direction, which forced the Australian featherweight to tap out. The stoppage came at 2:03 into the first round.
