Former UFC women's bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes has revealed the reasons behind why she has left her long term team American Top Team and she has also revealed that she would be willing to fight former teammate Kayla Harrison in the UFC — this and much more on Wednesday's social media roundup.
Amanda Nunes reveals what led her to leaving ATT and also says she is willing to fight Kayla Harrison
Ever since she moved to America and began fighting in the UFC, Amanda Nunes has been always at American Top Team which is widely regarded as one of the best team's with the best fighters in MMA history.
ATT have done Nunes wonders and the coaching of Mike Brown and many other coaches at American Top Team have helped her to become the greatest female fighter of all time.
Even though Nunes has achieved great things during her time at American Top Team, she has recently announced that she has left the team due to feeling 'cornered' due to other world class female talent within the gym targeting her. Nunes specifically mentioned Kayla Harrison and Yana Kunitskaya.
Nunes also went on to say that Harrison talking about her was a contributing factor to her leaving the team.
See what Nunes had to say in full about her departure from ATT and the situation with Harrison below.
Whilst talking about the situation with Kayla Harrison, Nunes revealed that she is now fully willing to face Harrison if she ever decides to sign with the UFC.
Nunes has in the past talked the fight down due to sharing the same gym as the PFL star but now they are no longer teammates, Nunes seems down to fight.
If the fight was to happen, who do you think would come out with the win?
