UFC featherweight champion (65 kg), Brazilian Amanda Nunes (20-4), who is preparing to defend her title this weekend against Australian Megan Anderson (11-4), admitted that she is calm about the possible closure of the division.
“I feel like after this fight, the UFC should think about what they want to do with the division, because I have the belt, the belt is going to be mine forever,” Nunes told BT Sport. “This division has to retire with the belt being mine.
“So whatever they want to do after this fight, they can do with the division. I’m okay with it.”
Amanda Nunes won the UFC bantamweight title with a submission win over Miesha Tate in 2016. She won the featherweight title in 2018, when she knocked out the great Cris Cyborg in just 51 seconds. Other highlights of her incredible record—widely considered the best in women’s MMA history—include victories over current and former champions Ronda Rousey, Germaine de Randamie (twice), Holly Holm, and Valentina Shevchenko (twice), as well as solid foes like Felicia Spencer, Raquel Pennington and Sara McMann.
