AMANDA Nunes has defended her bantamweight title with a spectacular head kick leading to a stoppage of Holly Holm in the first round at UFC 239 on Saturday in Las Vegas (Sunday, Manila time).
Nunes remained the pound-for-pound ruler of her sport in her usual devastating style. She floored Holm with a perfectly timed kick to the head, and she mercilessly finished Holm on the ground with 50 seconds left in the first round.
Holm is a veteran boxer and kickboxer who upset Ronda Rousey to win the bantamweight belt, but Nunes is on another level than every 135-pounder before her.
Jorge Masvidal has knocked out Ben Askren with a sensational flying knee just 5 seconds into their bout at UFC 239.
Masvidal delivered the fastest knockout in UFC history in jaw-dropping fashion. After listening to the opening bell while touching his own fence, Masvidal took three running steps out of his corner and sailed directly into the face of Askren (19-1), who had never been beaten in his 10-year pro mixed martial arts career.
Masvidal and Askren had exchanged numerous insults in the promotion for their bout. Masvidal landed two punches to the unconscious Askren's head before the referee could stop the bout.
