UFC 232: Nunes KO’s Cyborg in under a minute

Published

She only needed 48 seconds to finish Ronda Rousey to close out the UFC’s 2016 PPV campaign, and tonight in Inglewood, it took Amanda Nunes just 3 more seconds to finish Cris Cyborg on the final UFC PPV of 2018.

Nunes found Cyborg’s sweet spot at the 51-second marker of their UFC 232 co-main event featherweight title bout, face planting the virtually unbeatable legend after some wild exchanges to become the first female two-division champion in the history of the sport.

Cyborg, in her full on trademark berzerker mode, a la’ Wanderlei Silva, wasn’t able to properly defend herself from the precise and powerful return traffic coming from her fellow Brazilian. Nunes rocked Cybrog with a short right and followed up with some more picture perfect shots before eventually putting her away with a walk off right hand that forced referee Marc Goddard to step in.

For Cyborg, this would mark the first time that the 33-year-old had tasted defeat since her pro MMA debut all the way back in 2005. After nearly a decade and a half of pure dominance, one can expect an immediate rematch against Nunes sometime in 2019 should she want it.

Final Result: Amanda Nunes (17-4) defeats Cris Cyborg (20-2) via KO (punch) – Round 1, 0:51

    It looked to me like both girls were swinging for the fences and Amanda had the tougher chin and more accurate landings.
