With three title fights at the top of a stacked fight card, UFC 259 promised plenty of action this past weekend, and the event delivered more than we bargained for.

There was the fascinating main event clash, as Jan Blachowicz outpointed middleweight champ Israel Adesanya to retain his light heavyweight title and hand “The Last Stylebender” his first defeat. Then there was the one-woman battering ram known as Amanda Nunes, who continued her reign of dominance across two divisions by submitting Megan Anderson in a shade over two minutes in their featherweight title bout.

But the fight that stole all the headlines was the third title fight on the card, as Aljamain Sterling made UFC history as the first champion to be crowned via disqualification after defending champ Petr Yan inexplicably crashed a clearly-illegal knee to the side of the challenger’s head.

On this week’s show, we unpack all of the big talking points from the night’s action as we discuss the consequences of the night’s key bouts. We also take a look ahead to a big event for British fans, with Leon Edwards, Darren Stewart, and Davey Grant all scheduled for action at UFC Fight Night 187.
