It was billed as her toughest test to date, but Cris Cyborg still came through with a passing grade.
Cyborg successfully defended her UFC female featherweight title with a convincing decision win over Holly Holm Saturday night in the main event of UFC 219.
The Brazilian had no trouble out-striking the striker and former world boxing champion Holm, who is also an ex-UFC female bantamweight titleholder.
Cyborg landed several power punches that severely damaged the face of Holm, including a head-kick. She was pushed the full five rounds for the first time in her career, but still came out with her 19th career win – and 20th consecutive fight without being defeated.
