Report: Amanda Nunes Defends Women’s Featherweight Title Against Felicia Spencer At UFC 250

The UFC Women’s Featherweight Title is going to be defended at UFC 250 as Amanda Nunes puts the gold on the line against Felicia Spencer.

Brett Okamoto of ESPN first reported the bout, which will serve as the co-main event of the show.

Nunes (19-4-0) will enter the title bout riding a ten fight winning streak and seven of those contests were title bouts. Nunes hasn’t suffered a defeat in over five years, with that last loss coming to Cat Zingano at UFC 178 in September of 2014. Nunes would be competing in her fourth straight co-main event bout and it has been almost two years since the double champion headlined a card.

Spencer (8-1-0) has won two of three under the UFC banner, with those wins coming over Megan Anderson and Zarah Fairn. Spencer is a former Invicta FC Featherweight Champion, defeating Pam Sorenson to win the gold at Invicta FC 32. Spencer has picked up eight wins as a professional MMA fighter and half of them came by way of submission.

UFC 250 takes place on Saturday, May 9 from the Ibirapueroa Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil with Henry Cejudo and Jose Aldo headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
