Amanda Nunes pulled off one of the most surprising wins in mixed martial arts history when she left the world's most feared female fighter facedown on the canvas.Nunes knocked out Cris "Cyborg" Justino 51 seconds into the first round at UFC 232 Saturday night, ending the featherweight champion's 13-year unbeaten run in spectacular fashion.Nunes (17-4), the UFC's bantamweight champion, made history after she fearlessly moved up 10 pounds to challenge Justino (20-2), widely considered the most accomplished female fighter in MMA.Nunes is the third fighter in UFC history to hold two title belts simultaneously, joining Conor McGregor and Daniel Cormier.In Jones' first bout since completing his second drug-related suspension, the star picked apart Gustafsson with kicks in the first two rounds.Nunes also knocked out Ronda Rousey in less than a minute two years ago, and she has victories over bantamweight champion Miesha Tate and future 125-pound champion Valentina Shevchenko.Justino had won 20 consecutive fights since her MMA debut in 2005, and she had dominated since the inception of the UFC's 145-pound division, which was created largely as a showcase for Cyborg's talent.
