This weekend two division champion Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes defends her featherweight belt against Felicia “FeeNom” Spencer In the main event. In her first featherweight title defence The Lioness will be looking to continue her reign of dominance as the greatest women’s fighter of all time. She currents holds both bantamweight and featherweight titles and hasn’t lost a bout since September 2014. With first-round KO wins over Ronda Rousey, Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm in her locker she’ll be a tough opponent for submission ace FeeNom.
Spencer will be hoping she puts in a ‘Fee-nomial’ performance by dethroning the current champion but will be up against powerful striker Nunes. The Canadian Is no stranger to success herself and was previously an Invicta FC featherweight champion. In recent outings to the Octagon Spencer has showcased outstanding winning abilities and will be determined more than ever to cement her name in the division. This is Spencer’s biggest fight of her career so far and it can be expected she’ll be eager to prove she can use her grappling to take down the champ. Expect power met with determination in a main event filled with fireworks.
The co-main event will see a spectacular bantamweight bout between two of the finest in the division. No. 5 ranked UFC bantamweight Raphael Assuncao takes on the returning former champion and No. 9 ranked UFC bantamweight Cody “No Love” Garbrandt.
Assuncao will be keen to get another win under his belt as he looks to keep alive his hopes of a title fight in the future. Garbrandt, returns to the scene after over a year’s break from competition. He’ll be looking to regain his early career form where he dominated former champion Dominick Cruz. Garbrandt might not have stepped in the Octagon for a while but with his memorable knock out victories, he’s not to be underestimated. With both fighters having something to prove this should be an enticing match-up.
Fighting for the Future
UFC 250 will treat fans to a feast of bantamweight fights and Aljamain “Funk Master” Sterling vs. Cory Sandhagen Is another one not to be missed.
Currently sitting at No.2 in the division, Sterling is a talent on the rise and approaches the bout looking for his fifth consecutive win. The “Funk Master” is certainly one to watch and always brings an element of flair to his fights having written his name into the history books at UFC 248, where he became only the third ever fighter to implement the Suloev Stretch kneebar on Cody Stamann.
Sandhagen also approaches the fight full of momentum having gone unbeaten since his UFC debut in 2018. Since then he has defeated the likes of Mario Bautista and Raphael Assuncao on his way to a formidable 5-0 record. With only one defeat in his entire career Sandhagen will be confident of claiming a statement victory as he continues his journey towards the competitive bantamweight title.
The card is set to be a thrilling night of live action.
