    Was anyone surprised? I wasn’t but I was surprised how quickly she ko’d Cyborg.

    Cyborg kept pushing forward until Nunes countered her hard with a few power shots, Nunes then moved in to finish her. I think Cyborg was used to facing opponents that were intimidated(understandable) and were overwhelmed by her attacks when she pressed forward. Neither of those tactics worked with Nunes.

    Honestly yes. I expected Cyborg to have a better strategy than keep charging like a bull. It was incredible how Nunes kept landing hooks over and over again. Cyborg clearly didn't respect Nunes' power, and she paid for it.

    I thought it was cool to see how excited she was when she won. She was like a kid on Christmas morning. When she went running around the ring I was picturing her making airplane noises.
