Multiple media members reported that White said a victory for Aldana on October 3 will earn her a shot at the UFC women’s bantamweight title:

Amanda Nunes is the current UFC women’s bantamweight champion and UFC women’s featherweight champion. She has not defended the bantamweight strap since defeating Germaine De Randamie by unanimous decision at UFC 245 in December of 2019. Nunes will reportedly defend the women’s featherweight title next against Megan Anderson at UFC 256 this December.
