Amanda Nunes was able to stop her opponent Holly Holm, with her opponent’s signature move in the first round of their fight at UFC 239.
Holly Holm, whose career record is 12-4 MMA and 5-4 UFC, was struck by a right kick to the head as she crashed to the floor. Following the kick, Nunes, whose career record is 17-4 MMA and 10-1 UFC, finished the fight in the first round at the mark of 4:10 for the opening round. This was the 4th bantamweight title defense fight that Amanda Nunes has won.
This women bantamweight title fight was on the card of the UFC 239 that was held at the T-Mobile Arena located in Las Vegas. The fight aired as pay-per-view one on the ESPN and UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+.
Nunes said of her kick after the fight, “I worked on this move during my warm-up. I knew I was going to get her by kicking.”
Holm started the fight with a sniped at Nunes’ leg from the side. She was in the middle of her attack when Nunes landed her devastating attack to turn the tide of the fight.
This was a sudden and avi9ltnet end for a highly anticipated fight that actually started with both players only landing light punches on chests of each other. Nunes was the first one to open with punches in efforts to land powerful hooks.
Nunes had already beaten all the female fighters who previously held the Bantamweight belt and returned for the featherweight division once more.
There she defeated the reigning champ Cris Cyborg last December to claim the title.
