Cris Cyborg Retains Title Over a Tough Holly Holm

Even with a smart game plan from challenger Holly Holm, she couldnt stop the aggressive and precise attack of UFC women’s featherweight champ Cris Cyborg.

Cyborg (18-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) showed a mature game tonight against the former bantamweight champ Holm’s (11-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) best weapons to take home a unanimous decision via scores of 49-46, 48-47, 48-47

“I would like to fight somebody at 145, maybe Megan Anderson, maybe in Australia,” Cyborg said.

As is always after one of her fights, the question remains who can match Cyborg, who remains unbeaten since her 2005 professional debut. Who could be next aside from Anderson?
