UFC President Dana White shared his expectations for the upcoming bout between the organization’s two-weight champion, Brazilian Amanda Nunes and Australia’s Megan Anderson.
According to the head of the promotion, this confrontation is very intriguing, since two girls who have a knockout blow will meet in the octagon.
“I think [Nunes is] the greatest female fighter of all time,” White said of Amanda Nunes. “Personally, I love her. She’s a great human being. She’s the only one that’s held on to two titles and consistently defended both titles. She’s defending her 145-pound title against Megan Anderson, who nine of her 11 wins have come by way of finish. [Anderson has] got six knockouts, three submissions—You’ll have some girls that are very talented, very technical, but don’t have that power to knock out another woman. Both of these women have unbelievable power and they can both knock each other out, which makes this fight a very, very awesome fight.”
Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson will face off on the night of March 6 at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, USA in the co-main event of UFC 259. The lightest division championship will be at stake.
