Cristiana Justino Venancio (Cris Cyborg) is a Brazilian mixed martial arts fighter now signed with the UFC and was UFC's female featherweight champion in 2017.

Hawaii's Holloway, 27, eased his way into the fight before upping his intensity as the fight progressed to secure scores of 50-45 50-45 48-47 on the judges' scorecards to extend his winning streak at featherweight to 14 with a unanimous decision victory.

This was the last fight on her UFC contract.

The pace stayed the same in the second, but Holloway got noticeably more comfortable, as he parried Edgar's attempts to take him to the mat and often countered on the break. Drake said, 'Train until your idols become your rivals.' He's why I'm here.

"I wanted to prove a point and go five rounds with him so I can let the world know that I'm here to stay, and the "Blessed" express is still on the move". Holloway's relentless jab opened a cut on Edgar's nose as the champ got the job done. The two were supposed to fight first in December 2017, then in March 2018, but Holloway had to pull out both times because of an injury.

Spencer (7-1) had the crowd cheering as she withstood the assault and launched a few counterstrikes, her white shirt stained red with Cyborg's blood.

She has been trading barbs with UFC president Dana White in the media after he accused her of avoiding a rematch with Nunes.

It's an interesting mix of new characters that are bound to only add to the craziness already apparent in the film. Sony Pictures " Zombieland: Double Tap " will release in theatres nationwide on October 18.

"For sure, I want Amanda".

Marc-Andre Barriault (11-3) lost a split decision to Poland's Krzysztof Jotko in a middleweight bout, and Olivier Aubin-Mercier (12-5) lost a unanimous-decision to 22-year-old Arman Tsarukyan of Armenia in a lightweight fight. He kept Edgar on the end of the jab for much of the night, and even when Edgar was on top of his game, Holloway was in command.

Gavin Tucker won by submission over South Korean striker Seungwoo Choi in the third round of their featherweight fight.

Brazilian MMA fighting legend Cris Cyborg won in a bloody fight against Canadian Felicia Spencer at UFC 240. Alexis Davis lost a unanimous women's flyweight decision to Brazil's Viviane Araujo.

The problem for Edgar is that Holloway did all of those things and more on the way to a unanimous decision victory in a compelling bout.

Erik Koch took fellow American Kyle Stewart down four times to win a unanimous decision in their welterweight scrap. And as the fight moved into the middle rounds Holloway hit his stride as he loaded up on his strikes and started to catch the New Jersey native nearly at will.
