On June 6, Amanda Nunes, UFC Bantamweight and Featherweight champion, will hit the Octagon to defend her featherweight belt against Felicia Spencer.
Nunes secured her first UFC championship in 2016 after defeating Miesha Tate via submission at UFC 200. Nunes went on to cement her status after taking down Ronda Rousey five months later. Her bout with Rousey was expected to be the toughest of her career, but her victory there was only the start of an unparalleled legacy.
After defeating Cris Cyborg in the first round in 2018, Nunes became the first woman in UFC history to be the champion in two weight divisions simultaneously.
With wins over Holly Holm, Rousey, Cyborg, Tate, Valentina Shevchenko and many others, Nunes will forever be etched into the history books.
Now, there is only one question: Is Nunes the greatest female combat sports athlete of all time?
