Joanna at the press conference said, “I was the champion for a reason, for a long time, I think there is not BORN YET a female fighter who can tie Ronda Rousey’s record or my record”–talking about her successful 5 title defenses in the UFC.
Cris Cyborg has two successful title defenses after wining her 145lbs UFC title fight against Tony Evinger at UFC 214. Defending the title against Holly Holm and then again on short notice against Yana Kunitskaya, Cyborg is expected to defend her belt against in July at UFC International Fight Week against either Amanda Nunes or Megan Anderson depending on availability.
