Betting on Amanda Nunes (-600)
MMA Record: 19-4-0
Amanda Nunes is a woman to be feared. All she’s done in the UFC is wreak havoc inside the octagon and show why she’s arguably the baddest woman on the planet. Nunes has held the a title in the UFC since 2016, when she submitted Meisa Tate right in the very first round of their match. Nunes simply overwhelms and overpowers her opponents, including well-known figures in women’s MMA like Holly Holm, Cris Cyborg, Valentina Shevchenko, and Ronda Rousey. Nunes is also way more experienced than Spencer, so it would take a lot for the challenger to rattle the reigning champion. Nunes, at 5’8”, is two inches taller than Spencer, though, she only has an inch of reach advantage. The Brazilian’s power poses a huge threat to Spencer. Nunes’ power is proven, and she’s used it to score 13 knockout victories, thus far in her career. Spencer is unlikely to have dealt with the kind of power the champion packs in her punch, so don’t be surprised if this fight ends early.
Betting on Felicia Spencer (+400)
MMA Record: 8-1-0
Spencer knows she will be facing a legend, though, she’s been in a fight with one before. That was against Cris Cyborg, who handed her a unanimous decision loss back in 2019. Spencer, however, managed to get back up and score a win over Zara Farin last March via technical knockout in the first round. Spencer is tough cookie to crack. Her only loss in her career to date was to Cyborg, and no one has yet to knock out or submit her. Spencer’s resume is mostly built on her success in the Invicta FC, where she went 6-0 and even held a title when she defeated Pam Sorenson in 2018. Spencer, knowing she’s a huge underdog, does not have as much pressure on her shoulders than Nunes, which should help her psyche heading into this fight. She could be looking to take Nunes to the ground early and sneak in a submission maneuver, considering she’s got four wins by way of submissions.
Nunes wins via TKO.
