UFC 222 Free Fight: Take a look back at Cris Cyborg’s 46-second TKO victory over Charmaine Tweet

Cris Cyborg looks to make the second successful defense of her featherweight title this Saturday when she headlines the UFC 222 event to take on promotional newcomer Yana Kunitskaya.

Cyborg (19-1, 1 NC) won the featherweight title last July after earning herself a TKO victory over former Invicta FC champ Tonya Evinger. She made the first defense of her belt this past December, picking up a unanimous decision win over Holly Holm. Prior to winning the UFC belt, she picked up TKO wins over Leslie Smith and Lina Lansberg.

Back in February 2015 at Invicta FC 11, Cyborg picked up one of her most impressive victories to date, finishing top 145-pound contender Charmaine Tweet in just 46-seconds of the very first round. Take a look back at the iconic moment below.
