Social media has reacted with shock and awe to Amanda Nunes’ devastating KO win against Cris Cyborg which saw Nunes become the first ever female two-weight champion in UFC history.

Nunes needed just 51 seconds to plow through her fellow Brazilian, ending the bout at UFC 232 in Inglewood, California, with a ferocious display of punching against a woman who had previously gone unbeaten in more than a decade.

The decisive win staked Nunes' claim as the greatest female fighter of all time – and added Cyborg’s featherweight title to the Lioness's bantamweight crown.

Cyborg’s scalp was the latest in a line of conquests for Nunes which also includes Ronda Rousey and Meisha Tate – and it led to the plaudits rolling in for the woman hailed as “the baddest on the planet.”
