Amanda Nunes Plans On Retiring Soon


UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes is coming off of her first successful title defense, where she starched former champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 207. Nunes has some personal goals to achieve, which may cause her to leave the fight game soon.

“I don’t know (when she will retire), maybe in a couple of fights,” she said to ESPN W. “Three, two more. I want to have a family. Fighting and having a family at the same time is difficult.”

Before Nunes does retire though to start a family with her girlfriend -- UFC fighter Nina Ansaroff -- she wants to leave her mark

“I want to keep making history. It never happened in the UFC, with women fighting (and being champion) in two divisions. I want to be the first one,” she said. “If they give me the opportunity, I will take it”

The other title she wants to win is the UFC Women’s Featherweight Title, which will crown its first champion next month at UFC 208, where former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm and Germaine De randamie will battle to become the inaugural title holder.

Nunes hasn’t competed since UFC 207, and her next fight hasn’t been announced at this time.
