UFC has made good on its promise to never stop running live events throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Despite cancelling a handful of shows early on, the premier mixed martial arts organization in the world has had events just about every week since May 9. 

After seeing Justin Gaethje, Amanda Nunes and Kamaru Usman shine in PPV main events over the last three months, it was Stipe Miocic's time in August. The heavyweight champ completed his rivalry with Daniel Cormier by scoring a unanimous decision win over the the former light heavyweight and heavyweight champ at UFC 252. One week later, former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar took the spotlight over as he was successful in his bantamweight debut with a split-decision win over Pedro Munhoz.

To wrap up its latest stay in Las Vegas, UFC brought out some of its stars. Colby Covington outworked Tyron Woodley over four grueling rounds before Woodley suffered an injury and could no longer continue. Plus, UFC's latest rising star, Khamzat Imadaev, continues throttling people after starching Gerald Meerschaert with just one punch.

Now, the attention will turn to Fight Island where Israel Adesanya will put his middleweight title on the line when we takes on Paulo Costa on Sept. 26. Then in October, former women's bantamweight champ Holly Holm is back when she takes on rising contender Irene Aldana. Plus, the lightweight unification bout fans have been itching for since May arrives when Khabib Nurmagomedov takes on Justin Gaethje on Oct. 24.
