She should’ve backed up after getting rocked multiple times. I’m not sure if she binged the rocky movie series before this but she should know better than to keep brawling when you keep getting rocked. Basically pulled a Werdum/Stipe.
I guess she had too much of an ego to let another girl make her back up when she’s been bullying them her entire career. The days of her fighting cans are gone. I say give her a rematch since theres no other fight for cyborg. If cyborg fights smart, she will Nunes a very competitive fight
The technician that fought Holm would've stopped Nunes after a couple of rounds.
Instead she fought like Ronda Rousey and Wanderlei's hypothetical child.
If she would have fought conservatively like the Holm fight she would have gotten leg kicked into oblivion then KO'd. Best to just go out on your shield like she did. Cyborg has nothing for Nunes. She would probably need a year of training to completely change her style.
She fought the same way she always fights that’s the style that’s gotten her to the dance. Nunes was just too quick and powerful your post is asinine
Yes, and Nunes displayed great accuracy while Cyborg was throwing wildly.
The leg kick was a game changer.
Nunes landed a solid straight after the low kick, but Cyborg countered and even hurt Nunes, who was covering and had her back against the cage. Simply put, she was not ready for Nunes’ power. She said she was going to keep the pressure, but she was not counting on eating even harder punches.
The gameplan was stupid. I posted yesterday, before the fight, it’d be stupid to stand and trade punches. That’s what she did, and she lost the gambling.
I know Nunes in person and I like her. I was rooting for Cyborg, but I am not upset with the outcome. Fair is fair. Nunes’ striking game is superior. Cyborg will have to change her game plan if she wants to win the rematch.
