In the co-headliner, Cris Cyborg earned a disproportionate consistent choice triumph over a game yet overmatched Felicia Spencer. Cyborg battled through a cut on her temple opened by Spencer’s elbow, and she likewise fought off seven takedown endeavors from the predominant wrestler.
Cyborg’s striking and takedown guard was simply excessively. Spencer demonstrated incredible durability, however, Cyborg beat her up for almost 15 minutes in a row to get herself back on the triumphant track. This was the keep going battle on her UFC contract, however, there is discussion she’ll sign a one-battle contract to rematch Amanda Nunes. That is presumably the main battle left to have in the UFC Women’s Featherweight division.
