UFC 250 results: Amanda Nunes schools Felicia Spencer in one-sided decision

New, 4 comments

Amanda Nunes totally dominated Felicia Spencer for five-rounds to retain her featherweight crown in the UFC 250 PPV main event.

UFC 250 is over with and the featured bout saw a women’s featherweight title tilt between the champ-champ, Amanda Nunes, and the challenger Felicia Spencer. This was all Nunes all the time. The defending queen owned all facets of this fight, whether it was bombing on the feet or controlling on the ground, and did so for all five-rounds. Nunes ran away with the scorecards with relative ease, and is now on a ridiculous 11-fight winning streak. She is without a doubt the G.O.A.T. and has now successfully defended two championship belts in two different divisions. What talents are out there that could be next for Nunes, but also provide somewhat of a legit challenge?

Spencer tried to close the distance to open the match, but Nunes clipped her and shrugged off her grappling attempt. Nunes began to fire away, before hitting a counter-trip to take top position. Nunes controlled from the top, dropping elbows and cutting open Spencer.

Nunes took the center of the Octagon to start the second stanza. Her punching power backed off Spencer, which gave the champ the ability to dictate the pace. Nunes then hit a takedown and landed some more big elbows on the challenger. Back on the feet, Nunes continued to lead the dance and land the more powerful strikes.

Nunes continued to do her thing in the third round. She even hit a crisp one-two that knocked out the mouthpiece of Spencer, but the referee called a time out to replace the equipment before Nunes had a chance to follow up. Nunes started to attack with heavy leg kicks, that started to affect the movement of Felicia.

The defending champion was not letting up in the fourth round either. She pressed forward behind her heavy hands and debilitating leg kicks. Spencer started to flop to her back after her botched takedown attempts, but Nunes wasn’t willing to go to the ground. Nunes rocked Felicia towards the end of the round, causing a major hematoma on the forehead. The round ended with Nunes squeezing on a rear-naked choke.

The dominance from the champion continued into the final frame. Nunes took top position and controlled for a major portion of the round. Once the fight returned to its feet, the referee called a time out to bring the doctor in to check a cut on Spencer’s head. The fight resumed and Nunes continued to showcase her dominance, rag-dolling the challenger until the bell.

Amanda Nunes def. Felicia Spencer by unanimous decision (50-44 x2, 50-45): (W) Featherweight Title
