She has been undefeated since then with a 19-1-1 record. She has a large frame and built on a foundation of Taekwondo, she crucially possesses knockout power of her own.
The latest addition to its programming grid: Amazon Prime Video is offering UFC's mixed martial arts pay-per-view events to customers in the US, beginning March 3 with UFC 222, headlined by Cris Cyborg vs. Yana Kunitskaya. It's not like over the last six months this girl has gotten so unbelievable that she is going to go in and win the 145-pound belt. Not only has she fought Cyborg, but she fought and beat Kunitskaya back in their old home and now she's not giving the former opponent much hope to beat Cyborg. "I think I'm strong, too, strong enough to compare with her". "The men's division started to grow and grow and grow and like the 135- pound girls, I think this is going to be a big division soon".
Kunitskaya will unsurprisingly be the heavy underdog and the bold fans may put a small bet on a shock knockout considering the powerful striking of the Russian but in all likelihood, this will be another convincing win for Cyborg.
It's kicking things off with the upcoming bought between Cris Cyborg and Yana Kunitskaya on March 3rd.More news: Facebook said it won't separate the News Feed after all
"I don't feel any pressure", Kunitskaya said. "People thinking that about me makes me really want to keep working hard, keep getting better every day and make an wonderful fight for all my fans and be thankful for everything they do for me".
While the rapid return to the cage is a departure from her usual timetable, the dominant featherweight champion admitted that taking less time off between bouts and fighting more frequently has been something her head coach Jason Parillo has been after her to do for quite some time.
With Cyborg and Kunitskaya booked, and Nunes reportedly defending her title against Raquel Pennington at UFC 224 in Brazil, the superfight will have to wait. I wanted to fight in Strikeforce, but I couldn't get a visa, an American visa.
Cyborg is considered to be the toughest female fighter in the sport - ever.
