What a night for Amanda Nunes, no one had ever imagined that a comparatively smaller Nunes will knock Cris Cyborg out under a minute. UFC 232 actually proved out to be one of the most entertaining events of 2018. Fans waited for these two ladies to go at each other for nine months and that paid out well for Amanda. After knocking Ronda Rousey, she moved to Cris's division took on the undefeated women and blew her up under a minute.

 

Coming up as an underdog, she was expected to do everything but to win this one, the whole fight reminds of Joana vs Rose 1, where Thug Rose came out of the same circumstance and shook the world. This fight definitely calls for a re-match but right now UFC saw history being made, Amanda became the first ever woman to become a two-division champion. Amanda touches her opponent and they fall.
