UFC 232 hosted a legitimate super-fight as bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes went up to challenge featherweight queen Cris Cyborg. In the end, it was the smaller fighter who was victorious.
Cyborg was incredibly reckless and threw caution to the wind, and Nunes just clocked her over and over. Cyborg didn’t seem to respect Nunes’ striking and power, and she quickly paid for it. Nunes became the first to KO Cyborg in MMA, and is now the first ever female two-division UFC champ.
