The bantamweight title has changed hands once against at UFC 200 in Las Vegas on Saturday night after Amanda Nunes stunned Miesha Tate to become the new champion.

Nunes beat Tate up pretty bad, bloodying up her nose and forcing her to submit with a rear-naked choke. Nunes became the first openly gay champion in UFC history.

“I’m the champion,” Nunes said after the fight. “Oh my god, the greatest moment of my life I feel amazing.”

She now has 13 wins and is on a four-match winning streak.
