UFC champion in two weight categories Brazilian Amanda Nunes told how much more she intends to compete and about the new motivation before the fights.
Amanda Nunes has been on top of the game for several years at this point. There was talk not that long ago that she had designs on retiring from MMA competition, but then her wife, Nina Nunes, gave birth to their first child in 2020, and everything changed.
According to “The Lioness,” being a mother has renewed her passion, and now her intention is to keep fighting until her daughter, Reagan, is old enough to fully comprehend her success.
“I feel like nobody can stop me – especially with my kid right now,” Amanda Nunes said. “I keep focused, and she really gives me another run. I want to have a lot of memories with her in the cage. This fight is going to be another great moment to have some pictures and have her there, and I hope she likes when she grows up.
“Definitely I want her to be able to understand it and cheer for me. I’m going to go as long as possible, until my body tells me to stop. I feel very healthy, and I’m going to hang out here as long as possible. ”
Although Nunes said she doesn’t see much in the way of challenges after the fight with Pena, she knows the UFC will always find an opponent for her to share the octagon with, be it at 135 or 145 pounds.
Nunes’ philosophy during her title reign has been to accept all comers, and she promised that won’t change after UFC 265.
“I’m going to defend this belt as long as possible,” Amanda Nunes said. “Whatever UFC want to do, I’m going to be there, ready to defend the belt. Whoever steps in front of me, I’m going to take it. “
