The UFC fighters shared their thoughts on the upcoming bout between Amanda Nunes (20-4) and Megan Anderson (11-4).
Valentina Shevchenko: “It all depends on whether Megan has improved her wrestling skills. Amanda definitely won’t waste time on standing exchanges as her opponent has good punching power and a significant height advantage. She will knock her down and try to end the fight on the ground. And I think Amanda will keep her belt. “
Stephen Thompson: “I will choose Nunes. It’s hard for me to bet against the dominant champion. “
Brian Kelleher: “Megan Anderson is an excellent, versatile fighter with good anthropometric data. However, Nunes has too much power for this division and is likely to win this fight by knockout. “
Casey Kenny: “It seems to me that none of the girls have yet been able to defeat Amanda Nunes.”
Cynthia Calvillo: “Megan Anderson didn’t have enough time to get to the level that Amanda Nunes is at. I am not saying that this is impossible. She definitely has a lot of potential, but there are definitely gaps in her technique at the moment, and Amanda Nunes will take advantage of that. I think it will be an easy fight for Amanda. “
Drew Dober: “Amanda Nunes. She is my favorite fighter when it comes to the women’s divisions. She has incredible boxing. “
Geoff Neal: “Amanda Nunes Will Win This Fight.”
Leon Edwards: “Amanda Nunes. Anything can happen in battle, but if I had to bet money, I would bet on Amanda. “
Neil Magny: “Amanda Nunes, definitely. I have no idea how it can be stopped. “
Randa Markos: “Amanda Nunes. I think this is an easy fight for Amanda. “
