Right from the opening bell, Amanda Nunes dictated the pace, forcing Cyborg into a relentless defensive position, which culminated in her landing a stiff overhand right - putting an end to the fight with 51 seconds on the clock.

With the victory, Nunes added the featherweight title to her bantamweight crown, becoming the first ever women's "champ champ" in the promotion. When I hit her, I could see she got rung a little bit.

"This is the moment that I waited for to make history and be happy with myself and be happy with what I am capable of", Nunes said during the post-fight press conference.

Because of Jon Jones' win over Alexander Gustafsson last night, that also opens up the door for Jones to fight Cormier for the third time instead of Brock.

Originally, Cyborg didn't have any interest in fighting a fellow Brazilain in Nunes, but "THe Lioness" was publicly persistence in her intentions on stepping into the cage with Cyborg.

Yet the long road to finally getting what she deserved was consistent with Nunes' evolution as a fighter, rebounding from a 2014 TKO defeat against Cat Zingano, in which her lack of cardio was exposed, to become the well-rounded and unsafe fighter she is today.

In legendary fashion, Amanda Nunes just became UFC's newest champion. It happens, you know. "When she connected with a couple of punches, I just said, 'I'm going to walk right through her'". I said, 'Let me know, I need some time because I need to get ready.

Lifting the belt that perennial nemesis Daniel Cormier vacated 24 hours earlier, Jones invited "DC" to close out the fiercest rivalry in mixed martial arts history with the realisation of a trilogy in 2019.

"Prove to the fans that you're the champ-champ".

Nunes improves to a 17-4-0 record, going 5-0 in the UFC. I'm here. Get your belt back, ' he told Rogan afterwards.

'[The] 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!
