Amanda Nunes continues to clear out the Bantam weight and the Feather weight division. It's just incredible what she's been able to do with the bantamweight division and what she's done dipping her toes in the featherweight division. She ran through Cris Cyborg in just 51 seconds to win the featherweight title in December 2018, making her a simultaneous two-division champion. The first woman’s two division champion. Amanda Nunes is clearly on another level!
An Australian mixed martial artist a former Invicta FC Featherweight champion. Anderson was scheduled to make her promotional debut against Cris Cyborg at UFC 214 however, pulled out of the bout due to "personal issues" as the reason. Megan was initial scheduled to fight Nunes in December 2020 due to an injury the bout was postponed. It was her opportunity to defeat Amanda Nunes.
Can Amanda Nunes get dethroned at UFC 259 was the big question on everyone’s mind. Two-division champion Nunes (20-4 MMA, 13-1 UFC) puts her featherweight title on the line against Megan Anderson in the co-main event March 6 and will be a massive betting favorite heading into the fight. We don’t believe Amanda has fought anybody quite as tall as Megan. Will this play a role in upsetting Amanda can Megan’s reach give her advantage in this fight.
Megan a former Invicta FC champion had no answers, Nunes was ferocious with her striking in the opening exchanges. Once they landed to the ground it became an even bigger mismatch. Nunes was chopping away with strikes before eventually transitioning to an armbar that bent Anderson’s elbow in the wrong direction, which forced the Australian featherweight to tap out. Fight ends in the first round at 2:03, WOW.
The greatest female fighter to step into the cage Amanda Nunes will remain UNDEFEATED, Nunes is truly the GOAT. Is there any woman out there that can give her competition?
