This card fight card has plenty for die hard fight fans to get excited about. In the main event, Amanda Nunes will be putting her women’s featherweight championship on the line against Felicia Spencer. The co-main event will feature a fight between Raphael Assuncao and Cody Garbrandt to see who deserves a shot at the vacant bantamweight title. The card will also feature two key bouts for the title race in the men’s bantamweight and the welterweight division respectively.
This weekend, Amanda Nunes seeks to make history by becoming the first fighter — male or female — to successfully defend their UFC Title in two different weight classes, while holding both belts simultaneously. This is the first time “The Lioness” will defend the featherweight title she claimed in an impressive fashion at UFC 232 against Cris Cyborg. She holds wins over Miesha Tate, Cris Cyborg and Ronda Rousey and now will look to add another legend to her resume when she looks to defend her featherweight title against Felicia Spencer. Speaking to the media before the fight The Lioness said “I beat all the good girls, the champions and the former champions. All of those girls are very tough girls and those fights made me who I am today. Now, if I have to go through a war to defend my legacy and the title, I’m going to. That’ll make me stronger. I am the ‘Lioness.”
The event was originally scheduled to take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in early May and feature Henry Cejudo vs. Jose Aldo as the main event, but the COVID-19 pandemic threw all of that out the window. However, we’ll still get to see a women’s featherweight championship bout in Las Vegas between two of the best female fighters in the world: Brazil’s Amanda Nunes (19-4) and Canada’s Felicia Spencer (8-1).
UFC 250, the current champion, last stepped foot in the ring in December when she successfully defended her UFC women’s bantamweight championship against Germaine de Randamie by unanimous decision. Her last defeat came all the way back in 2014 against Cat Zingano, and since then she’s won 10 bouts in a row on her way to becoming the featherweight and bantamweight champion.
Spencer last fought in February, taking down Zarah Fairn Dos Santos by TKO. Before that, she suffered the only defeat of her career last July by unanimous decision against Cris Cyborg.
