Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer at UFC event on June 6th

The featherweight champion will defend her title UFC event on June 6th taking place... well, we’re not sure where yet.

The two-division UFC women’s champion Amanda Nunes will put one of her belts on the line in the featherweight division when she takes on Felicia Spencer at the UFC event scheduled for June 6th, but without a set location as of 17 days before the fight.

Nunes is one of the biggest stars in all of MMA, with both the bantamweight and featherweight belts in her possession. The “Lioness” has a 19-4-0 career record and has won 10 straight fights, beating some of the biggest names in the sport such as Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Cris Cyborg, and Holly Holm over that streak.

Spencer is 8-1 as a pro, and is known as a submission specialist. The Canadian knocked out Zarah Fairn in her last outing in February, which was her rebound from a decision defeat to Cyborg at UFC 240 last July.

This fight was originally scheduled for the co-main event of UFC 250, where Nunes would have been fighting in her home country in front of a raucous crowd at Ginasio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, Brazil. But after the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted fight cards everywhere, it has now been rescheduled for... somewhere. Once we know, we’ll post it here.

Here are the odds at DraftKings Sportsbook for Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer at UFC’s event on June 6th:
