UFC Flyweight/Bantamweight Champion Henry Cejudo and UFC Women’s Bantamweight/Featherweight Champion Amanda Nunes are the only fighters in the UFC roster at the moment to hold two belts at the same time.
Former UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping would like to see a super fight between the dual title holders.
“He said he wants all the belts from 125 to 145 and that means the female belts as well, and I swear to god, I would love to see Cejudo vs. Amanda Nunes,” said Bisping on Believe You Me (via Jed Meshew of MMA Fighting). “I like it. I mean I’m not for a woman fighting a man or beating a man up. I like what he’s saying, but I kinda wanna see Nunes. I think I’d put my money on Nunes in that fight. I honestly would. I think I would put my money on Amanda Nunes in that fight.”
This isn’t the first time talk has developed about who would win a man versus woman bout in the UFC, as the same thing happened during the dominant reign of former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.
Bisping believes that Cejudo would probably win the hypothetical super fight, but also think that Nunes would give Cejudo a run for his money.
“I’m just saying. Of course I’m having fun with it and Cejudo would probably beat her but I’m saying Nunes would give him a fight,” Bisping said. “Nunes would give him a fight. Nunes would at least give him a fight. I actually am really curious to see that though. I’m really curious to see what the best female fighter on the planet - and I think it’s fair to say that Amanda Nunes is that by far - how she would cope with someone like Henry Cejudo, who makes 125. He’s naturally a smaller person - four inches shorter, a weight class ten pounds lighter or about the same weight class - I’d be kind of interested to see that. Not from a macabre viewpoint, not from a ‘let’s see a man beat up a woman,’ I’m just genuinely interested to see that. But anyway, that’s not gonna happen.”
If the bout were to somehow happen next, it would feature one fighter in Nunes riding a nine fight winning streak and another in Cejudo riding a five bout winning streak.
