UFC 239 took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The event featured two successful title defenses.  One by Jon Jones and the other by Amanda Nunes.

Payout Perspective:

The ratings reflect the popularity of Jon Jones even if he wasn’t on the Prelims broadcast.  From all evidence, it is looking like this event was one of the biggest since the promotion moved to ESPN.  The last time ESPN drew over 1 million viewers was for another Jon Jones headlining card back in March.
