Amanda Nunes Retains Bantamweight Championsip, GOAT Status At UFC 235 Over Germaine De Randamie

The greatest female fighter of all-time looked to cement her status further, by getting a win over a familiar foe at UFC 245.

Valentina Shevchenko Eyeing Bantamweight Title Shot To End 2022: "I Think It's Inevitable"

Double champion Amanda Nunes defended her UFC Bantamweight Championship at UFC 245 Saturday night against a former champion that never lost her crown. However, her opponent Germaine De Randamie had lost to Nunes before, and failed to defend the Featherweight Championship upon winning it.

The two first did battle six years prior, with Nunes finishing off GDR in the first round of their Fight For The Troops 3 bout. This one looked like it could follow the same path.

Nunes put the pain on De Randamie with takedowns, ground and pound and an arm triangle in round one, and when the threat of heavy strikes became a reality in round two, more takedowns followed. A questionable stand-up from the referee led to De Randmie finding success with clinch strikes that looked to put Nunes in danger. This happened about once a round, with De Randmie threatening, but getting outwrestled throughout the duration of the round. 

This led to Nunes taking home a one sided unanimous decision win on the scorecards. The win tied her for most championship fight wins in UFC women's history.

Nunes has effectively defeated every UFC Bantamweight, Featherweight and Bellator Featherweight Champion in women's history. She's also beaten flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko, as well as former champions in pro wrestling's NXT and WWE.
