Twitter Reacts To Cyborg’s Demolition At UFC Brasilia

Spread the word!

UFC Fight Night 95 (also called UFC Brasilia) went down from Ginasio Nilson Nelson in Brasilia, Brazil tonight (September 24, 2016). Headlined by Cristiane ‘Cyborg” Justino’s second bout in the UFC, the event featured a plethora or Brazilian talent.

The main event went down according to the script. Justino’s opponent, UFC newcomer Lina Lansberg, lasted longer than many expected, making it to the second round. But she had to withstand a hellacious beating to do so. Lansberg could mount no meaningful offense, and spent the entire fight in survival mode before the referee finally intervened.

The co-feature saw former bantamweight champion Renan Barao get back on the winning track in his second fight at 145 pounds. He battled former Ultimate Fighter finalist Phillipe Nover, taking a unanimous decision after three relatively uneventful rounds.

And finally, the third from the top billing saw the heavyweight slugfest with the outcome most expected. Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson and Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva duked it out for the better part of two rounds before Nelson found the chin of his Brazilian counterpart and then finished it on the ground. Most of the chatter about the fight centered on what happened next.

Upset that referee ‘Big’ John McCarthy had not stopped the fight sooner, Nelson made his displeasure felt. After walking away in frustration at being forced to hit his friend Silva more than he felt necessary, Nelson came back and kicked McCarthy in the butt as the latter tended to the prone Brazilian.
