UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship bout: Cris Cyborg vs. Amanda Nunes

A UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship bout between current champion Cris Cyborg (who is also a former Strikeforce Women’s Featherweight Champion and Invicta FC Featherweight Champion) and current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes is expected to take on December 29, 2018 at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada

If successful, Nunes will become the first woman to be champion in two divisions simultaneously and third fighter overall (after Conor McGregor at UFC 205 and Daniel Cormier at UFC 226), as well as the sixth overall to win a title in different divisions. This will be the fourth time in UFC history that champions in different divisions fight for the same title, following UFC 94, UFC 205 and UFC 226.

Nunes won the UFC’s bantamweight title in 2016, taking it from Miesha Tate and defending it from Ronda Rousey ever since.

Iconically, after defending her title, Nunes ran over to and kissed her partner Nina Ansaroff on pay-per-view television.

This year, Nunes and her partner — who is also a UFC fighter — took to Instagram to announce their engagement on Aug 18.
