Amanda Nunes faced up to fearsome featherweight champion Cris Cyborg tonight at UFC 232 and showed her who the real dominant force in WMMA is by KO’ing her in just 51 seconds to become a two-division champion.
The co-main event women’s featherweight title superfight is underway in California!
Jab for Cyborg. Now Cyborg throwing big hooks. Nunes with a leg kick. Cyborg pressing forward throwing punches, but Nunes throws a straight punch and the champion’s legs buckle!
Incredible start for Nunes, but Cyborg tries to throw heavy leather in return. However Nunes throws two big hooks that again stagger Cyborg to her knees.
Cyborg finds her way back up still stunned, but Nunes isn’t finished there and she lands another enormous hook that sends Cyborg falling face-first onto the canvas for an incredible knockout finish just 51 seconds into the fight!
Remarkable stuff from Nunes, who immediately hurt Cyborg in a fashion we’ve never seen before and then continued to do so, dropping her three times in less than a minute to seal her status as the greatest WMMA fighter of all-time.
As for Cyborg, her 20-fight unbeaten run comes to a devastating conclusion and for the first time since her MMA debut she tastes defeat.
