UFC 250 Reddit Free : For the first time, the UFC holds a pay-per-view event at its APEX facility in Las Vegas when UFC 250 goes down this Saturday.
That’s not the only history being made. Amanda Nunes can become the first fighter to successfully defend two UFC titles will holding both simultaneously, something that not even recent dual-division champions like Henry Cejudo, Daniel Cormier, and Conor McGregor can claim. McGregor never defended either of his belts and Cejudo and Cormier were stripped of their first-won titles at before defending their second.
So Nunes can claim this achievement for herself if she gets past featherweight upstart Felicia Spencer. The 29-year-old Canadian gets her shot at “The Lioness” in just her 10th pro bout and she’s looking to join the list of all-time great MMA upsets by knocking off Nunes.
Former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt makes his return to competition in the co-main event after a 462-day layoff and he’s been given anything but an easy fight as he fights perennial contender Raphael Assuncao. Though Assuncao might not be as dynamic a threat as Garbrandt’s most recent opponents, the Brazilian vet is one of the toughest outs at 135 pounds and he’s more than capable of extending Garbrandt’s losing streak.
In other main card action, would-be bantamweight title challengers Aljamain Sterling and Cory Sandhagen battle to keep their spot in the pecking order, Neil Magny and Rocco Martin look to get winning streaks going at welterweight, and star Sean O’Malley faces one-time UFC bantamweight title challenger Eddie Wineland.
