UFC 240 results: Holloway, “Cyborg”, outlast their opposition
After five hard fought rounds Max Holloway remains UFC featherweight champion of the world. UFC 240 took place last night in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, an event that saw Holloway defeat former UFC champ Frankie Edgar by way of unanimous decision. While the first round was close, Holloway slowly started taking over, finding his speed, rhythm and simply landing harder shots.
Former women’s featherweight champ “Cris” Cyborg handed Felicia Spencer her first loss, also winning by a clear cut unanimous decision. Spencer put up a good fight though, opened up a cut on her opponents face, and was the first fighter aside from Amanda Nunes who made “Cyborg” look human.
