Is Amanda Nunes One-and-Done With the Featherweight Division?

Ain’t that something.

Amanda Nunes, the queen of all female bantamweight fighters, moves up a division to fight the super-dominant champ Cris Cyborg. Nunes knocks her out in under a minute, takes the featherweight belt, and… says no mas to the whole 145-pound division thing.

Yup. It looks like the new champ of female featherweights is eschewing defending her title. Instead, she’ll stick to the lower weight classes.

This leaves poor Cyborg out in the cold with no rematch. And if (and when) Cyborg crushes whoever stands in her way of getting that championship back, there will still be a big question mark hanging over her head because of that quick loss to Nunes.

Oh well. Maybe the UFC will sign PFL star Kayla Harrison.

Cris Cyborg Gonna Feast on the Bones of Bantamweight Champ Amanda Nunes

There is just one female superfight for the UFC to make, and it looks like they done made it!

According to featherweight champ Cris Cyborg, she’s signed on the dotted line and will face bantamweight queen Amanda Nunes at UFC 232 in December.

This is a fantastic match-up. Nunes’ best weapon is her punching power, and Cyborg is perhaps the most dangerous female fighter to ever set foot in a cage thanks to her own striking skills. I think it’s safe to say someone is getting smoked in this fight.

Here’s Cyborg’s Instagram post announcing the bout:
