Clash between Cris Cyborg versus Amanda Nunes leads to MMA coaches’ debate

Fight between Cris Cyborg vs Amanda Nunes breaks down MMA trainers

UFC features some top talents in its roster for the final bout of 2018. The upcoming fight is set to be a pay per view spectacle. This anticipated matchup will be a female super fight pitting featherweight champion Cris Cyborg Justino against bantamweight counterpart Amanda Nunes. Justino, with an undefeated record since her pro debut in 2005, is a force to be reckoned with.

On the other hand, Nunes, with a career record of 16-4, has also had an impressive run. She has emerged victorious against some formidable opponents in the past year. With the fight scheduled for Saturday, several esteemed MMA trainers have voiced their opinions. Top MMA trainer Javier Mendez mentioned that Cyborg holds a strength and size advantage over Nunes.

This advantage is attributed to Cyborg’s exceptional cardio. Conversely, Amanda possesses technical agility, giving her an edge over Cyborg. Another trainer, Marc Montoya from Factory X, predicted Cyborg’s strategy to be aggressive, seeking to pressure Nunes and engage in close combat.

Nunes will need to counter this by employing feints and looking for takedown opportunities. Din Thomas from American Top Team remarked that this fight is unpredictable. Both fighters excel in their unique styles, and the outcome remains uncertain. Presently, Cyborg is the favorite, but Amanda’s skillset may enable her to triumph in the ring.
