In the third, it was the Brazilian taking control of the fight, landing more frequently with her jabs and peppering the injured eye of Holm. Before the fight, Cyborg has won all but two of her fights by knockout and nine coming in the opening round. Since joining the UFC roster in May of 2016, she has mauled Leslie Smith and Lina Lansberg in 140-pound catchweight bouts, and Tonya Evinger and Holm in featherweight title fights.

Holm (11-4) tried to stay out of range of Cyborg's strikes, hopping in and out of distance and throwing lefts or attempting headkicks.

As we enter round two, Cyborg's bleeding, Holm is swollen and her nose looks busted.

Holm famously produced the most stunning upset in UFC history in 2015, when she flattened Ronda Rousey with a crushing kick to the head and clinched the bantamweight title.

Cyborg upped the pace as the bout progressed by moving forward and landing solid shots when countering and as Holm exhausted Cyborg started winning the battle in the clinches. "I have a lot of fans there".

"I would like to fight someone at 145 [lbs], maybe Megan Anderson", said Justino, who added that she would like the fight to take place in Anderson's homeland - Australia. She has has expressed interest in former Invicta FC champion Megan Anderson (8-2).

Dagestan native Nurmagomedov was the toast of the MMA world following his three-round destruction of Edson Barboza at UFC 219 on Saturday night. Nurmagomedov (25-0) maintained his ideal record by simply bullying Barboza, wrestling him to the ground and pounding him with heavy hands throughout.
