The newly crowned champion doesn’t know if Cyborg should get an immediate rematch for the gold, but would like to speak with UFC President Dana White first.
“Honestly, I think what I went through in this camp was a lot. Putting all this weight back and training heavy with those guys at the gym. We’ll see. You never know. Let me go back home and talk to Dana White to see what he thinks. But soon you guys are going to know,” Nunes said on the UFC 232 post-fight show.
Cyborg was defeated for the first time in in over thirteen years at UFC 232, with the only other fighter to defeat her being Erica Paes.
Nunes knocked Cyborg out in just 51 seconds to win the title, which is a reason why White isn’t sure the former champion will get an immediate rematch.
“I don’t think you do,” he said. “It was a pretty convincing win.”
There is no word yet on who could challenge Nunes for the women’s featherweight title, as the division doesn’t have a proper rankings system, like the other weight classes in the UFC do.
