With the action almost upon us, here’s your chance to check out some of the highlights leading into UFC 239 in Las Vegas this evening!

Las Vegas, NV — It’s fight day, and with the big show going down, you’ve got one last chance to take a look at the build-up to UFC 239. From the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, to media day, to the weigh-ins and final face-offs, the build up to the event was huge.

The night will, of course, be topped by Jon Jones defending his light heavyweight title against Thiago Santos. But don’t overlook possible show stealers like Amanda Nunes vs. Holly Holm, the co-main event, or Diego Sanchez vs. Michael Chiesa.

Storylines, meanwhile, will come at you in droves immediately after the event. With a win, will Jon Jones continue to lord over the 205lb weight class? Or will he wait for the outcome of Daniel Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic, and consider a move up to heavyweight for another go with D.C.?

And what about Nunes? A win, and she’ll have to choose which title, bantamweight or featherweight, to defend next. A loss, and she might opt to concentrate on the 145lb weight class — where Cris Cyborg returns later this month against Felicia Spencer.
