Twitter Reacts as Amanda Nunes Makes History with Spectacular Win at UFC 250

Amanda Nunes pulled off a dominating performance at UFC 250. As a result of her 5 round annihilation of Felicia Spencer, ‘Lioness’ became the first fighter in UFC history to defend one title whilst still holding a title from another weight division. After the fight, the top-ranked female pound-for-pound fighter looked so fresh that fans could have been forgiven for thinking that she had just walked into the Octagon. 

Fans and Analysts react to Amanda Nunes vs Felicia Spencer

Chamatkar Sandhu highlighted the fact that ‘Lioness’ had accomplished what Conor McGregor, Henry Cejudo, and Daniel Cormier couldn’t. He tweeted, “Amanda Nunes becomes the first double champ in UFC history to successfully defend both belts. She defeats Felicia Spencer via unanimous decision.”

ESPN MMA’s Ariel Helwani tweeted the score and provided a stat to highlight ‘Lioness’ performance. 

Meanwhile, 15th ranked Strawweight fighter Angela Hill said, “Nunes makes me wanna be better.”

Another user tweeted an image of the post-fight. It featured Bruce Buffer finishing up the closing formalities. On one side ‘Lioness’ had her arm raised whilst on the other ‘Feenom’s battered and bruised face. He commended her for her heart as she kept at it despite getting pummeled.

Meanwhile, another user highlighted ‘Lioness’ dominance by saying it works against her as she is always the odds on favorite.

“People talk about Amanda Nunes not being a draw or a star, but I think the #1 reason she isn’t a global star is that she’s expected to win. There hasn’t been anyone we were really surprised she beat. She’s simply too elite for current competitors.”

She certainly is elite having notched up wins over Ronda Rousey, Valentina Shevchenko, Holly Holm, Cris Cyborg, and Miesha Tate on her near 6-year unbeaten streak.

Moreover, ‘Lioness’ class did not go unnoticed as she let ‘Feenom’ put the belt on her right shoulder and warmly embraced her. The mutual respect was evident throughout the bout with both fighters touching gloves before every round.
