The spotlight continues to shine bright on UFC dual champion Amanda Nunes.
She reminded people once again why she is the best female UFC Fighter in history dominated Canadian challenger Felicia Spencer at UFC 250 in Las Vegas to cement her growing status. Not only is she the greatest women’s fighter, but she also became the first UFC “champ champ” to make successful defenses of both their titles while still an active two-division world champion.
Nunes, who holds both the women’s bantamweight and featherweight titles, has had a phenomenal past year or so that saw her shine bright courtesy of her being featured on “The Body Issue” cover of ESPN The Magazine.
Following her UFC 250 win, she shared a reworking of her 2019 ESPN Body Issue cover, featuring her two UFC title belts.
“ESPN body with an upgrade.”
Nunes said she planned to take a short break from action to recharge her batteries before returning to the cage to defend her bantamweight title.
“(I need) a break, for sure,” Nunes told reporters after her win at UFC 250.
“I have to see what’s going on with my legs. I always get hurt with this leg. I don’t know what’s going on. My baby is coming. In three months she’s going to be here. I have to organize a lot of things – her room. I have to do a lot of things, and I really need a break right now.
“(My life is) perfect, living this fun ride and the joy every single day. Be a good person. Life will give you back.”
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at her ESPN Body shoot.
