Amanda Nunes is coming off the first round destruction of Holly Holm where she successfully defended her bantamweight title. With 16 of her 18 wins coming by way of stoppage she has developed a fearsome reputation. The recent first round demolition of featherweight champion Cris Cyborg made many fans start the conversation about greatest of all time and showed she has the ability to dominate two divisions.
As for Germaine de Randamie she has not lost a fight since being stopped by Nunes six years ago. Since their first meeting de Randamie has won five straight with three of them being by way of stoppage including defeating Holm for the featherweight title.
It has not all been smooth sailing as her fights have involved plenty of controversy and even out of the cage she has managed to earn the ire of fans. After capturing the featherweight title de Randamie refused to fight the woman many considered to be the only real 145 pound challenge, Cyborg.
It has been six years since the first Amanda Nunes vs. Germaine de Randamie and in that time Nunes has built a fearsome reputation. She has arguably beaten everyone who can be considered a worthy challenge for her and is now constructing a legacy.
De Randamie is looking to win back fans and capture her second title but when you have to compete against Nunes who might be the most dominant female fighter of all time that is a big task.
