I Really don't like Amanda mostly because she isn't feminine at all.
which is why as much as i hate to  do it i have to pick her until she fights Shevchenko or someone else strong enough to make it competitive.
 Maybe get a Round 5 decision over Nunes but thats just my opinion on this situation.

Anyway Nunes by round 1 sub or Ko( imma go with submission though)

Hey at least Pena isn’t a completely one dimensional fighter who just has grappling in her arsenal like Spencer. Pena is well rounded and she may make it 25 minutes if she has the grit Spencer has. That being said, she has no chance at all to win. It’s not even interesting to pick a Nunes fight anymore. This is depressing and I really hope this is one of three title fights or at least one of two, because this alone headlining would be absolute utter dog****.

Another body for Nunes to make quick work of. Hate how uninterested I've become in the division because Nunes is undoubtedly incredible. But there's no competition for her. 

Strickland vs. Hall is a nice fight and I like it quite a bit. 

Aldo/Munhoz is a weird one, but it's a barnburner on paper. People are dramatic about Aldo anytime he signs a new fight contract and they act like he is a decrepit old man when that's just provably not the case. He's an all-time great who is about 7 years removed from his prime and he still arguably won a round or two against Petr Yan. He's got some fight left in him for sure.

I think Aldo being done is one of the most untrue things that people believe in MMA, Me included, Dude only fought champions and still haven't got dominated, Most of them are close fight. I think Aldo could still be in his prime, But just Petr Yan, Alex Volkovski, Max Holloway and Conor Mcgregor are just that good, And I'm not mention the Marlon fight because that **** was a robbery
