Nina Ansaroff Credits Girlfriend Amanda Nunes For Win


Nina Ansaroff earned her first ever win in the UFC when she submitted former Resurrection Fighting Alliance Women’s Strawweight Champion Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger at UFC Fight Night 103.

Ansaroff, who has been in a relationship with UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes for quite some time now, credits Nunes for helping her get that coveted first UFC victory.

“Man, for her last three fights, she’s called me out, telling everybody that I’m the next champion,” Ansaroff said to MMA Junkie. “It’s a little bit of pressure, but she believes in me. I know what I’m capable of. She does too. And it only motivated me to get the win tonight.”

Despite being highly hyped by American Top Team Ansaroff holds a record of 1-2-0 in the UFC. Still, she believes putting together a nice little winning streak will get her a future title shot.

“I think if I put (three wins) together, it would be three finishes, and I think in this division, that puts you straight up there for a (title) shot,” she said. “I want to go back to the gym and fix a couple things that I feel like I had mistakes with tonight, and finish fights and keep going until I get to the top.”

Ansaroff currently holds a professional MMA record of 6-5-0 and has only won just a single fight in the last three years, which came over the aforementioned Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger Sunday night.
