Budd vs. Nunes Wiki

Amanda Nunes, a Brazilian female MMA fighter entering Strikeforce Challengers on a five fight win streak, blasted out the bigger and more muscular Julia Budd in only 0:14 to record one of the fastest knockouts, not only in women's MMA, but in the sport's all-time record books. Nunes, with only a scant three years of MMA training and fighting experience, jumped out guns blazing in the Challengers 13 undercard event, squaring her hips up to her opponent in retro Chute Boxe fashion and launching lefts and rights in peppering combination.

A crisp straight left from that opening barrage landed squarely on the chin of Budd, dropping her to the canvas where Nunes followed up with a series of hammerfists. Referee Jeff Mackens rightly intervened as Budd was separated from her senses. The quick loss dropped Budd to an overall record of 1-1, both fights in the Strikeforce promotion.
