Big nite in LA last nite - Amanda Nunes pulled it off and shed the air of invincibility, destroying Cris “Cyborg” Santos in 51 seconds. Nunes rocked Cyborg several times before Cyborg went down for good and the ref stepped in to prevent further major damage.
Nunes is now the biggest thing in UFC/MMA - obliterating Ronda Rousey in 48 seconds, now needing an additional 3 sec. to vanquish invincible Cyborg.
Funny old world - Nunes was the 135 lb. fighter stepping up to fight a bigger, slightly taller girl at 145. However at weigh-ins Nunes was exactly 145, Cyborg in at 144.5.
Question now is whether Cyborg joins her former arch-enemy Rousey at WWE to make a ton of money from the McMahons. Perhaps a rematch with Nunes first, who knows but Cyborg coming into WWE after a brief 3 month training program would give Rousey another needed foil - and Rousey has been doing very well in WWE where events are scripted and controlled to cover her weak chin and obvious lack of real fighting skills.
Nunes stepping up to 145 also seems to seal the fate of the 115, 125 & 135 weight classes as she’s queen of the pen now. Here’s a low-grade youtube of last nite’s fight fyi. Cyborg really didn’t know what hit her. Can’t decide who looked worse for weaer after goin’ thru the Nunes-shredder - CYborg or Rousey. Still have to give the nod to Rousey - she looked horrid after being taken out in 3/4 of a minute . . . .
