Amanda Nunes (14-4) has blitzed through the UFC women’s bantamweight division, winning five consecutive fights and dismantling Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey along the way.
The champion announced on ESPN her plans to retire in “two or three” more fights with hopes of starting a family:
That leaves a presumed showdown with the winner of the Holly Holm-Germaine de Randamie for both belts, one would assume a rematch of her last loss to Cat Zingano and possibly a Cris “Cyborg” Justino bout or a Ronda Rousey rematch before she retires.
If she sticks to her two or three fight cap, it makes things even more difficult, and probably removes at least one of those dream matches.
It would seem Nunes isn’t going to fall victim to hanging around too long, but she may not have time to fully cement her standing as a legend in the UFC with what could max out as a four-fight title reign.
