The Fighters

Amanda Nunes (19-4-0) “The Lioness”

 Nunes is currently the women’s featherweight champion, and rightfully so. Her fighting resume shows us that she is also currently on a 9 fight winning streak, has 13 wins by knockout, 3 by submission, and 2 by decision.

Her striking accuracy is about 51 percent and she has  a grappling accuracy of 41 percent. She delivers 4.62 significant strikes a minute while absorbing just 3.18.  When looking at this ratio, we can see that these are solid numbers, because she lands more significant hits than absorbs.

Nunes also has herself a pretty good takedown defense, of 80 percent. Her ground game averages 1.76 takedowns and 0.64 submissions every 15 minutes.

Felicia Spencer (8-1-0) “Feenom”

 Spencer has been on a tear since coming into the division and looks to keep climbing. She definitely deserves a title shot against Nunes. Her only professional UFC loss so far was against Cris Cyborg, who at the time was one of the best fighters in the UFC. Her fighting resume shows us that she has 4 wins by submission, 1 by knockout, and 2 by decisions.

Although she is newer to the UFC family, she still has had great success overall in her professional fighting career. If you put all of her numbers together she is 12-2 overall. With that being said, it is harder to pick up what her stats are going to look like since it is not tracked outside the UFC, other than wins and losses.

Other stats available include that she has a 68 inch reach, which will not be an advantage compared to Nunes 69 inch reach.

Who Wins This Fight

Spencer is going to be a household name and it could be even sooner with a victory over Nunes. The way she fought Cris Cyborg could give us a little interpretation of how her and Nunes will battle it out. Spencer was able to rough her up some and claw until the very end, but ultimately got voted a loss.

Nunes has been a freak of nature. She has a very solid and consistent striking ability and has shown how to dismantle some of the better fighters with the division.

Overall, the safe money goes to Nunes here. She has proven to showcase powerful knockout victories and with her aggressive approach to the game should make this fight a good one for Spencer.

Pick: Nunes wins via TKO
