Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s two-division champion Amanda Nunes will defend her featherweight title opposite top 145-pound contender Megan Anderson at the upcoming UFC 259 pay-per-view (PPV) event TONIGHT (Sat., March 6, 2021) inside APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Nunes (20-4) has won 11 straight fights across two separate divisions, scoring seven violent finishes along the way. She’s widely considered the greatest female UFC fighter of all time after stopping former champions Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate, as well as Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm.
As for Anderson (11-4), she’s had a hot-and-cold run since crossing over from Invicta FC back in summer 2018. After an upset loss to Felicia Spencer at UFC Fight Night 152, the Aussie rebounded with consecutive wins over Zarah Fairn dos Santos (UFC 243) and Norma Dumont Viana (UFC Fight Night 169).
