Heart and fighters instinct, she was too hurt to regroup, monster shots stunning her every time
She can certainly win a rematch, a hard shot would put nukes down as well. At least the betting odds will be much better for Cyborg
Avoid the 1-2 lol. So predictable. Easier said than done though.
A 1-2 is a jab followed by a right cross, Nunez was throwing the right hand then following with a hook, I`ve forgotten what combo number a hook is, but the jab is a one, she was waiting for Cyborg to jab to throw the counter right and that`s how the finish came, Cyborg jabbed while her chin was held higher than her left shoulder, she was wide open, that`s what she`ll have to work on, once she got kicked to the leg then caught with a shot, she went wild.
Nunes-Cyborg was a shootout. This could very easily have been a discussion about where Cristiane goes from here following a first round victory (instead of the first round defeat). It was *that* kind of fight where someone getting caught and finished early was inevitable.
The leg kick Nunes landed early on was significant. Cristiane was so focused on "being Cyborg" that she didn't bother to check that kick... and Amanda followed up on it quite effectively.
