In a thrilling five round war at UFC 219, Cris Cyborg successfully defended her featherweight championship over Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm.
The majority of the five rounds were contested on the feet, with both fighters having their moments. The right hand and right high kick of Justino caused major swelling on the eye of Holm. Holm fired back with quick combinations though, causing the nose of Cyborg to bleed.
The final judges scorecards read a unanimous decision victory for Cyborg— one judge scoring four round for Cris and one for Holly, the other two judges giving Holly the first two rounds.
The efforts from both fighters were greatly appreciated by fight fans all over. Both “Holm” and “Cyborg” were worldwide trends on Twitter after thier fight.
At the post-fight press conference, it was announced that Cyborg vs Holm took home Fight of the Night honors— an honor that will earn each of them a $50,000 bonus.
