Cyborg-Nunes Set For UFC 232
After blasting one another on social media amidst negotiations of a fight date, Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes will finally square off on December 29th at UFC 232 in Las Vegas.
As reported by ESPN, Cyborg will defend her featherweight title against Nunes, who will move up in weight from bantamweight.
Cyborg openly campaigned on social media to have the fight moved to September, due to not wanting a long layoff between fights, as her last title defense came in March when she defeated Yana Kunitskaya.
Nunes last fought in May, when she would score a fifth round stoppage on Rocky Pennington in her third defense of the Bantamweight title.
On Wednesday, Cyborg would make the fight official by tweeting a poster of the showdown.
