Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is about to uncork the Amanda Nunes vs. Holly Holm bantamweight championship co-main event on the UFC 239 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card TONIGHT (Sat., July 6, 2019) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Nunes, the first and only female “champ champ” really doesn’t seem like she plans on losing any time soon. “Lioness” (17-4) absolutely destroyed her opponents in 2018, battering Raquel Pennington like she was owed money before knocking out Cris Cyborg in less than one minute. Simply put, Nunes is riding high into her fourth title defense.
As unlikely as a Holm victory may seem, the former boxing champion was also counted out before kicking Ronda Rousey upside the dome (watch it). A pair of losses in her most recent title shots has admittedly stolen the wind from her sails, but “The Preacher’s Daughter” (12-4) will still enter the cage as a legitimate challenger to the belt.
