UFC 222: Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya

MMA

I’m Jody Jamieson. Goodnight everyone!

You’ll have to forgive me guys. I’ve been unwell the last few fights and been trying to power through. Probably my worst updates in a while the last hour or so. Gonna call it a night and lie down. Congrats to Cyborg. She calls out Amanda Nunes. It’s the logical next step.

Official decision. Cris Cyborg def. Yana Kunitskaya via TKO (strikes) at 3:25 of Round 1.

It sounds a weird takeaway, but Kunitskaya showed enough that she’ll have the tools to be a player at bantamweight. She took down Cyborg and did some good clinch works. The power of Cyborg’s shots were just far too much. Cyborg wins again.

Kunitskaya down again. Huge ground and pound. And it’s over!

Cyborg eventually uses a knee to fight free. Clips her and drops her. Kunitskaya hanging in, but can’t handle the power.

Really good clinch works from Yana right now. Double underhooks.

Kunitskaya on the back trying to get hooks in! Just before she can make anything happen, Cris stands. In the clinch.

Cyborg smashes her with a right hand. Just when it looks to be over Kunitskaya grabs a single and gets a takedown!

Instructions. They touch gloves. Back to the corners. Main event is underway!
