Amanda Nunes To Make First Featherweight Title Defence Versus Felicia Spencer At UFC 250

Amanda Nunes will attempt to make the first defence of her UFC Featherweight Championship on May 9th, facing Felicia Spencer at UFC 250. First broken by Brett Okamoto of ESPN, the fight will be on the pay-per-view card which takes place at the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Spencer most recently got a win in February, stopping Zarah Fairn with strikes in the first round.

In the summer of 2018, Spencer lost a decision against Cris Cyborg, who previously held the UFC Featherweight Championship.

Cyborg dropped the belt to Nunes in December of 2018 at UFC 232. She is now the Bellator Featherweight Champion.

Being a two-division champion, Nunes has defended her UFC Bantamweight Championship belt in her last two appearances. She has held the bantamweight title since 2016, where she defeated Miesha Tate at UFC 200.

Already booked for UFC 250 was a flyweight championship bout between current champion Henry Cejudo and Brazil’s Marlon Moraes.
