The two train at the same gym.
Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes battled it out last Saturday for the Women Featherweight title at UFC 232. The fight didn't last long with Nunes defeating Cyborg in just 50 seconds, giving the Brazilian her first loss in 12 years. After the fight, Cyborg was consoled by her friends, one of whom was actress Halle Berry.
For those wondering how these two would link up, well it's simple. Berry has been training these last couple of months for an MMA film called "Bruised" and she has been going to Cyborg's gym in Huntington Beach, CA, according to TMZ. TMZ also reported that Cyborg had cameras set up in her locker room, and that's when they captured Berry giving the fighter a hug.

Berry was Cyborg's VIP guest at the event and had spent time with her team throughout the weekend.
"I was shocked [by the loss]. A lot of mixed emotions. But she's a champion. You'll see ... she'll be back," Berry said. "All champions have to face highs and lows. I've faced it in my career. We've all faced it. She'll be back."
