Megan Anderson and Felicia Spencer, who both competed and won at UFC Fight Night Norfolk, are the front runners for that title shot.
Nunes seems interested in facing either Anderson or Spencer at UFC 250, saying the following on Twitter:
I like both winners tonight. Now it’s up to the @danawhite I’m ready for either. --— Amanda Nunes (@Amanda_Leoa) March 1, 2020
Anderson, who defeated Norma Dumont at UFC Norfolk, says the fact that she is the only fighter on a winning streak should be enough for a title shot.
“I’m the only one that’s on a win streak,” Anderson told MMA Junkie. “I feel like I put my name on the list, particularly with such a great knockout. The UFC is going to do what the UFC wants to do. If they give it to Felicia, I think she’s an incredible competitor. I wouldn’t be surprised if they give it to her. If that’s the case, I’d love to fight again.”
Spencer, who defeated Zarah Fairn at UFC Norfolk, cites a previously victory over Anderson as to why she should get the title shot.
“I do have a win over Megan,” Spencer said after the event (via Danny Segura & Mike Bohn of MMA Junkie). “We both got first-round finishes tonight, so it was an interesting night for that. I think it turned out the way a lot of people expected and I could definitely see my self getting that shot and I think I earned it.”
There is no word yet on who the UFC is choosing to face Nunes at UFC 250, but whomever does get chosen, will get their first opportunity at UFC gold.
