Cyborg lands a right hook that drops Hiroko Yamanaka and looked to finish the fight with a choke. The ref was ready to stop the fight but allowed Cyborg to continue her assault. That's what this was by the way. An assault. Yamanaka landed zero offense and was brutalized for 16 seconds. After the fight Pat Miletich stated he thought the fight was prematurely stopped. This was the first time Cyborg has stopped a fight with such violence.
Cyborg was on the shelf for a year while waiting for Strikeforce to find a match up for her. She landed 15 strikes in 16 seconds. She was asked after the fight about a fight with Ronda Rousey and Cyborg thinks she talks too much. Yamanaka was brought in to lose to Cyborg and she did just that. She was a betting long shot.
