Despite the result, the Brazilian knockout artist is adamant that it made her a better fighter.

“I think all the emotions of being sidelined by the ufc for 9 months, changing managers, even finding out the venue had moved from Vegas to LA made me overly aggressive and give up the game plan. The fight made me a better fighter and a better woman today.

Cyborg hasn’t suffered a loss since losing to Nunes. She racked up a six-fight winning streak, including a stint in Bellator MMA. Currently, she reigns as the Bellator MMA Featherweight Champion.

As for Nunes, she recently suffered her first loss in seven years. She dropped the UFC women’s bantamweight title to Julianna Peña in December via submission.

Now she will face Peña in an attempt to avenge the loss and regain her title on July 30 at UFC 277.
