Dana White Believes Amanda Nunes Is “The Best Ever” After Putting Cris Cyborg To Sleep
Amanda Nunes won Cris Cyborg via KO at the co-main event of UFC 232. Nunes opened up strong and rocked Cyborg at the beginning of the match. “The Lioness” was faster and more precise rival!
Amanda Nunes destroyed Cris Cyborg with her punches, and the referee stopped the fight after only 51-seconds. Nunes is the first female fighter to hold titles in two different weight classes.
Let’s remember, Amanda Nunes holds notable victories over Valentina Shevchenko, Ronda Rousey, and Miesha Tate.
“The Lioness” has risen up in the eyes of fans and professionals. Many members of the MMA community said Amanda is the best female fighter of all time. Dana White agrees. He also called Nunes “the best ever”. (h/t MMAFighting.com)
“She’s the best ever. How can you deny it? You can’t deny that she’s the best ever. That’s what this fight was for,” White said at the UFC 232 post-fight press conference. “This fight was to find out. But if you look at her resume and who she beat, she’s the best ever. Nobody can dispute that. You can try, you can say some stupid shit, but she’s the best ever.”
But the way Amanda Nunes destroyed Cris Cyborg is outstanding! Actually, Nunes took part in a wild brawl with one of the most dominant female strikers in the history of MMA! There weren’t many fighters who dared to trade shot after shot with Cyborg!
Dana White says the whole place went crazy when Nunes put Cyborg to sleep. He adds there is nothing more fun than two champions bombing each other from the start.
“The roof came off that place when that fight ended,” White said. “It was as exciting a fight as you’ll ever see and what makes it even bigger are the stakes. You have two of the baddest women fighting to see who the baddest is.
“Both world champions in two different weight classes and they come out and start bombing like that. There’s nothing more fun. You couldn’t ask for anything better and that type of a fight with what was at stake.”
Dana White is not interested in an immediate rematch between Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes, because “Nunes’ victory was so convincing”.
Dana White praises Nunes now. But only one year ago, White had a beef with Amanda Nunes. He ripped her for pulling out of UFC 213 due to sinusitis, claiming the reasons for her withdrawal were “90 percent mental”.
Dana White guarantees Amanda Nunes will become a star after UFC 232.
“You think Amanda Nunes isn’t going to be a star after this? I f*cking guarantee it. I promise you that. The place went crazy for her and I don’t know what’s next. Tuesday, we’ll be back in the office and we’ll have a meeting and we’ll figure out what’s next for her.”
Do you agree with Dana White? Do you think Amanda Nunes is the female GOAT after Cris Cyborg demolition?
