Amanda Nunes is putting one of her two UFC title belts on the line on June 6th, fighting Felicia Spencer for the featherweight division championship at a location that the promotion appears to be hoping to hold at the UFC Apex Arena in Las Vegas.

Nunes is one of the most dominant women’s fighters ever, with a 19-4 career record and wins over the biggest names in women’s MMA such as Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Cris Cyborg, and Holly Holm. Her 10-fight win streak across two weight classes shows her dominance, and is why she’s such a heavy favorite.

Spencer is a submission specialist with a 7-1 career mark, but not nearly the CV of Nunes. In terms of common opponents, her only career loss is to Cyborg, but she rebounded with a knockout win over Zarah Fairn on February 29th of this year.

Right now most of the money and wagers are on Nunes, but there seems to be sharper action on the underdog, who is getting only 19% of the bets but 30% of the action.

Here are the odds and betting splits for Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer at UFC 250 on June 6th

Amanda Nunes: -560: 70% of handle, 81% of bets

Felicia Spencer: +425: 30% of handle, 19% of bets
