However, in relation to viewing MMA Nunes Vs Randamie fit between MMA Nunes Vs Randamie, Reddit is essentially the most uplifting selection.

Nunes said in November she initially wanted the de Randamie fight to take place at featherweight, but the challenger wanted it at bantamweight and ultimately got her way. Speaking to BT Sport recently, Dana White said that Shields will be coming to Amanda's UFC 245 title fight.

Nunes crushed Rousey in 2016, battering the former icon in a 48-second mauling, having been infuriated by the way her rival had been given far more pre-fight attention despite her own status as champion.

In a recent interview with UFC's web portal, Amanda Nunes opened up about Nina Anasroff's effect on her life. "Every G.O.A.T.is established through time, and it's not just who you beat, it's how you beat them".

De Randamie will be looking to do more than make history on Saturday. "You think you're comfortable because you've beaten her before, but you're not - she's evolved, we've both evolved, and we're at another level in our careers right now".

"It's not even the belts that intrigue me", Holloway said. There's been champions with very long reigns, but nobody is unbeatable.

It's not something she has considered giving up despite her successes in the cage.

While an absence due to injury following the featherweight saga halted her momentum, de Randamie had a successful return to action previous year when she notched a victory over then recent title challenger Raquel Pennington. No sooner does a fighter ascend to the top rung of mixed martial arts, they invariably come crashing back down to the mat with a thud.

Ahead of the fight, BJPENN.com reached out to several pro fighters to get their predictions for the scrap. "It's a waste of my energy to not enjoy this". We will have to wait and see will Thurman be able to claim the Bantamweight title off Pacquiao? "I don't want to waste time on negative energy because I'm a positive person". But Nunes is deep into a streak of domination now, one long enough for White to bestow greatness upon her - and to make more triumphs feel inevitable. "I believe you have to earn everything". "I moved forward. There comes a time in your life you have to do that". Staying close to the champion gives "The Lioness" a chance to counter and do damage so de Randamie would be best served trying to drag the fight into deep water. That belt is gone and now I'm fighting for a new one. "Whoever you think is the best guy, let me fight him and if he has a belt, that's just the cherry on top". That's why I want to fight Amanda.
