Cris Cyborg vs. Amanda Nunes a potential superfight for UFC 228

A champ vs. champ super fight might be going down later this year.  The UFC promotion has been trying to put together Cyborg vs. Nunes since earlier this year, then it was desired for UFC 226 on July 7 in Las Vegas, but that failed to come to fruition.

But it finally looks like things seem to settle down as the dominant UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg revealed on Twitter that she agrees to a fight against women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 228.

“My last fight was four months ago,” Cyborg wrote. “I’m ready to fight.”

I agreed for second time , fight Amanda Nunes September 8 #UFCdallas#UFC228 my last fight was 4 months ago. I’m ready to fight.

In her third tweet, Cyborg reiterated Amanda Nunes’s initial desire to fight fellow Brazilian. After two failed PPV attempts, Cyborg got an itch to return to the octagon.

We couldn’t make it happen #ufc222 or #ufc226 but #LetsGoChamp #ufc228 you called me out now let’s handle it.

Women’s featherweight champion Cyborg successfully defended her second title defense with a first-round TKO when she ran through Yana Kuntiskaya at UFC 222 event back in March. Before that, she scores a five-round decision win over former UFC bantamweight champ Holly Holm. Cyborg won the vacant belt after defeating former Invicta FC titleholder Tonya Evinger at UFC 214 last year.

Amanda Nunes is coming off a fifth-round TKO win over Raquel Pennington at UFC 224 back in May. She also holds wins over Valentina Shevchenko and Ronda Rousey, since her title victory over Miesha Tate at UFC 200 in 2016.

Cyborg vs. Nunes it’s not a done deal yet, but both agree to fight each other. Now UFC needs to make it official, let’s do it, Dana White.

UFC 228 is set to take place at American Airlines Center in Dallas on Sept. 8, currently booked a featherweight showdown between Yair Rodriguez and Zabit Magomedsharipov.
