Add Amanda Nunes to the UFC fighters thinking about or retiring retirement.
Simply over a week after extending her winning streak and her tradition at UFC 250, champ-champ Amanda Nunes could potentially be looking at moving on with her life outside of the Octagon.
Just last weekend at UFC 250, Nunes thoroughly dominated Felicia Spencer to successfully defend the UFC women’s featherweight championship for the first time. With the win, Nunes, among other achievements, became the first female UFC fighter and second fighter overall to win and retain both titles held in a champ-champ run at any point in their career, and the first UFC fighter to retain both titles during a champ-champ reign.
Questions following the event became who could be the next to challenge Nunes — considered the greatest women’s MMA athlete in history — for either of her titles. But in an interview with a Brazilian television program, Esporte Espetacular, Nunes states to not be shocked if she retires faster and later on– perhaps even faster than we believe.
“Ah, I don’t know, I’ve achieved everything I wanted,” Nunes stated. “I’m well, I can happen with my life, perhaps a [take] brand-new action, perhaps discover brand-new skills, assist some ladies there … perhaps be a coach, too. I remain in a minute that I can retire, you understand, and I remain in a minute that I can battle. I’m great.
‘There’ s absolutely nothing else to be done today in thedivision The Hall of Popularity will come, for sure. My life moving forward, if I do stop now, the UFC will offer me every assistance I need to continue having my money and work.”
