Cris Cyborg Issues Statement Following Her 51-Second Loss To Amanda Nunes

Cris Cyborg Releases Statement After UFC 232 Title Loss To Amanda Nunes

Two of the best female fighters on the planet Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes squared off last night (Sat., Dec. 29, 2018) in the co-main event of UFC 232’s pay-per-view (PPV) event from inside The Forum in Inglewood, California.

Cyborg put her 145-pound title on the line for the third time with her last loss came in her debut fight back in 2005. Cris Cyborg who long been considered the most dangerous female fighter on the planet fell short to Nunes, who knocked her out cold in 51 seconds. Sure Cyborg handled her loss with grace and stayed humble afterward.

She took to Twitter early on Sunday morning and issued a statement:

”Today was not our day, but I want you to know that I am very grateful for your affection!” Cyborg wrote. “Life is like that one day we lose and one day we win! Belt for me has always been symbolic; the most important is to be a champion in the lives of people making a difference in this world!”

Cyborg won the women’s featherweight title back in July of 2017 when she defeated Tonya Evinger via TKO and since then defended it twice against Holly Holm and Yana Kunitskaya.

Heading into this champ vs. champ super fight Cyborg was opened as betting favorite over Nunes, but last night Nunes proved everyone wrong as she was explosive, faster and more precise fighter in the Octagon. With the victory, ‘Lioness’ became the first female UFC fighter to hold two titles simultaneously.
