Amanda Nunes dominated Felicia Spencer last night in the main event of UFC 250 in Las Vegas.
The judges scored the bout 50-44, 50-44 and 50-45 for Nunes, who was making the first defense of her UFC women’s featherweight title.
Nunes had complete control in what was a flawless performance. By the end, Spencer was pouring blood from her face and was wearing significant swelling on her forehead from numerous Nunes punches and elbows. Yet she was still able to hang in for all five rounds.
“I’m not surprised. I know she’s very tough. I know what she’s capable of,” Nunes said of Spencer. “I knew if I have to go five rounds, I have to dominate. I have to be as sharp as a cactus.”
The card took place in front of no fans at the UFC Apex, across the street from the UFC’s corporate campus.
With the victory, Nunes becomes the first fighter in UFC history to have defended two titles in two weight classes while still holding them both.
Cartoon level power! 👊
