Nunes made quick work of the most dominant fighter in women’s MMA as she finished the featherweight champion in just 51 seconds to become the third fighter in the promotion to hold two different belts simultaneously, joining the ranks of two-division champs, Conor McGregor and Daniel Cormier. The 30-year old mixed martial artist now holds the UFC bantamweight and featherweight championship and is now considered as one of the greatest women’s MMA fighter of all time.

Give credit to Cris Cyborg. She came to throw down. This was a fire fight from the get go. It was just Amanda Nunes' night. You have to do the rematch IMO. #UFC232
