The UFC’s latest champ champ Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes set the entire combat sports world on fire and left everyone shell-shocked when she defeated the dominant and seemingly invincible Cris Cyborg in the very first round of their super fight at UFC 232. Nunes went up in weight to the 145 pounds division and still looked impressive and extremely dominant in her victory. Nunes specially had to gain extra 10 pounds for the fight, even though she hadn’t fought in the featherweight division for more than seven years.
There have been plenty of talks and speculation about giving Cyborg a well deserved rematch. However, in a recent string of tweets Nunes has seemingly confirmed that she will not fight at featherweight ever again. Nunes recently took to Twitter and posted a series of videos in which she can be seen struggling to wear a jeans due to all the extra weight that she put on. She captioned the video as, “145 never again”.
