Amanda Nunes is one of the greatest MMA fighters ever, she's cleaned the division out. That's what we're looking at right here. The Giraffe won't survive the Lioness.

A man the nunez stinks. This main event is a joke.
As usual they'll stack this card with two co main events because nobody cares about Nunes and definitely ain't spending money on Nunes unless they're ********. 

Megan Anderson also stinks. No speed no agility no balance. Beats a couple nobodies and gets a title shot. 

This division is and always has been a joke. 

She ain't the goat. She ain't the lioness. She's the **** who caught a beating by cat Zingano. 

Ufc is a pathetic organization run by a modern day slaver that only "builds" fake champs and is great at ramming them down the throat of the fans and fooling the dumb casuals into believing their fake narratives. Surprised the stupid drug addict joe rogain hasn't said Nunez can beat Mayweather in a boxing match. I'm sure when he does most of you dumb ****s will believe it.

******* idiots.

i could see them maybe putting another title fight as the main and making nunes/anderson the co-main.

You know Nunes ruined Cat's career with that beatdown, she had problems for a few years even though she rallied back and won. Now she doesn't fight and Nunes is the champ. Meh.

She fought almost the whole time minus time off when she had a baby. She's making her bellator debut on their next event. The fact that she's very injury prone and having a baby effected her more then anything Nunez did but who really knows.

I just remember her saying something on the Joe Rogan Experience about how in that fight that 'Amanda punches like a dude' and that an injury happened to her in the first round (I watched that fight live, I'm a huge Zingano fan) and she talked about brain damage she got in fighting Nunes and another serious injury. 

I understand why you don't like Nunes, but at least she's not Cyborg level ****** beating up innocent women in the Octagon while masquerading as a "woman"

Nunes vs. Anderson
Megan Anderson, TKO, R2
Nunes is a shining star in the women here in this promotion, but it’s about time she is beaten by a fresh face. Here is Megan Anderson, Whos shots are nothing to laugh at. She the new prospect ending the reign, and I see that happening.

@flying I just watched it and it seems you're right. I gotta say Zingano is pretty stupid to keep fighting and ufc are criminals to not pay for it. Girl says to them she has brain damage and needs help and ufc offers her a match against Cyborg. Dana white is a *******. I hope him and everyone he loves die horrible slow deaths.


About the last part though a man the Nunes is just as much a man as cyborg. Both have clearly done massive amounts of steroids in their lives at least and I don't think either should be allowed to compete against regular women. If it gets revealed either of them is transgender nobody will really be surprised.

Can't think of any recent title fights where the champion should be any bigger of a favorite than Nunes here.
