UFC results, highlights: Amanda Nunes pummels Felicia Spencer for wide decision win to retain

Amanda Nunes entered the Octagon at UFC as a massive favorite in her main event featherweight title defense against Felicia Spencer. Nunes, unquestionably the greatest fighter in the history of women's mixed martial arts, showed exactly why over the course of 25 minutes in dominating Spencer to retain her featherweight title and further cement her legacy as the G.O.A.T.

Nunes, who also holds the UFC bantamweight championship, wasted little time establishing her dominance in the fight, throwing a variety of strikes and landing almost every one of them. Spencer's best path to victory coming into the fight seemed to be working the grappling game. She attempted seven takedowns and succeeded on none. Meanwhile, Nunes scored six takedowns of her own across the five rounds of action.

As the minutes ticked by, Nunes' strikes left Spencer with cuts under her eyes and on her scalp as well as a massive hematoma on her forehead. Spencer was incredibly tough in hanging in through the fight, trying from the opening bell to make something happen, but there is no one in MMA on Nunes' level.

That fact showed as Nunes dominated on the feet, landing kicks, elbows and punches at will, outlanding Spencer in significant strikes. She also dominated on the ground, controlling positioning and nearly finishing submissions. The only flaw in her performance was the lack of a finish, something Nunes said did not surprise her given Spencer's toughness.

"I'm not surprised, I know she's very tough," Nunes said after her win. "I said in all my interviews, I know what she's capable of. I studied her and know she's tough."

The question now becomes: What is left for Nunes? She has effectively cleared out two divisions and challengers like Spencer are clearly not up to the level of facing the champion.

"You know, I don't know [who is next]," Nunes said. "That was my goal, defending my two belts at the same time. I'm with the greats. I'm so happy right now. I don't know what's next. I'm very proud of myself and my team."

Elsewhere on the card, bantamweights seized the day with three emphatic highlight-reel finishes. First it was 'Suga' Sean O'Malley scoring a walk-off knockout over Eddie Wineland where he refused to follow up with any shots. Then Aljamain Sterling made quick work of another top contender in Cory Sandhagen with a vicious rear naked choke that left Sandhagen out cold. Finally, former champ Cody Garbrandt announced he was back with a second-round TKO of Raphael Assuncao as the horn sounded.

UFC results: Amanda Nunes mauls Felicia Spencer

Amanda Nunes added another marker in her claim for the title of greatest women’s MMA fighter of all time on Saturday night.

Defending her UFC featherweight title for the first time since she dethroned Cris Cyborg in December , Nunes ( MMA, UFC) rolled over Felicia Spencer for her 11th consecutive victory in the main event of UFC

An incredibly tough Spencer ( MMA, UFC) made it to the final horn, but she survived a mauling. The judges scores were , , and for a unanimous decision.

“I wasn’t surprised. I know she was tough,” Nunes said in a nod to her opponent’s toughness. “I knew what she was capable of.”

Nunes also has been bantamweight champion since July , making her the longest reigning current UFC champion of either gender. She’s defended the pound belt twice since winning the featherweight belt, so Saturday night’s victory made Nunes the first champ-champ in UFC history to successfully defend both titles while holding them.

It became clear early that while Spencer is a tough and tenacious opponent, she’s simply not on Nunes’ level. In the opening round, Nunes landed a couple of bombs, which caused Spencer to go for a defensive clinch. Nunes, however, executed a pinpoint trip, then spent the remainder of the round winning the positional battle on the ground and landing elbows that cut Spencer open.

In the second, Nunes continued imposing her will, using jab-overhand right combos that kept Spencer backpedaling. When Spencer shot for a takedown, Nunes parried, adjusted and turned it into a takedown of her own.

By this point, it was clear the fight was going to end whenever Nunes felt like it. Nunes kept it standing in the third and landed at will as the fight started to feel like more of a sparring contest. Nunes sent Spencer’s mouthpiece flying with an overhand right. Spencer’s takedown attempts got sloppy. Nunes rocked Spencer with a brutal uppercut in the final minute. Leg kicks added up as Spencer began to visibly limp.

If nothing else, Spencer’s toughness proved to be otherworldly, which was demonstrated in the fifth, as Nunes landed shot after shot after shot. Nunes went for the kill late in the round and had a tight rear-naked choke applied as the horn sounded.

Spencer emerged from the fourth sporting a nasty hematoma on her forehead, but her corner sent her back out for the fifth. The fight hit the mat as Nunes delivered elbows that rendered Spencer a bloody mess. In the final minute, referee Herb Dean called a timeout, but the doctor cleared Spencer to finish the fight.

Nunes, who hasn’t lost since , recorded her fourth career decision win. Spencer has dropped two of her past three.

The women’s featherweight title bout was the UFC main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. It aired on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN/ESPN+ and early prelims on UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+.
