At UFC 250, Amanda Nunes joined the Octagon as a huge favorite against Felicia Spencer in her main event featherweight title defense. Nunes, undoubtedly the greatest fighter in women’s mixed martial arts history, demonstrates exactly why she retained her featherweight title over the course of 25 minutes while dominating Spencer and further cemented her legacy as the G.O.A.T.
Nunes, who also owns the UFC bantamweight championship, wasted a small amount of time establishing her supremacy in the fight, throwing a variety of strikes and landing nearly every one. The best path to victory for Spencer that came into the fight seemed to be working the grappling game. She tried seven takedowns, and was unsuccessful. Meanwhile, over the five rounds of action, Nunes scored six takedowns of his own.
Nunes’ strikes left Spencer with cuts under her eyes and on her scalp as well as a massive hematoma on her forehead, as the minutes ticked by. Spencer was incredibly hard at hanging in through the fight, trying to make something happen from the opening bell, but at Nunes’ level there is no one in MMA.
The fact showed as Nunes dominated at the bottom, landing kicks, elbows and punches at will, outlanding Spencer 124-42 in big strikes. She also dominated on the field, taking places and almost completing submissions. The only fault in her success was the lack of a finish, something that Nunes said was not shocking considering the durability of Spencer.
Now at UFC 250, the question becomes: What is left for Nunes? She has essentially wiped out two divisions and rivals like Spencer obviously are not up to the champion’s mark.
“You know, I don’t know [who is next],” Nunes said. “That was my goal, defending my two belts at the same time. I’m with the greats. I’m so happy right now. I don’t know what’s next. I’m very proud of myself and my team.”
