Nunes: Win Over Cyborg Makes Her A Hall Of Famer
For Amanda Nunes, not only is a second world championship on the line at UFC 232, but a defining win for her legacy and a spot in the UFC Hall of Fame.
Nunes looks to become the first woman to hold two titles in the UFC, as the bantamweight champion goes for the featherweight championship against Cris Cyborg on December 29th in the headlining fight of UFC 232.
With wins over Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, and Germaine de Randamie, Rocky Pennington, and Valentina Shevchenko, Nunes claims that a win over Cyborg would make her the greatest woman to ever step inside the Octagon.
“Definitely (it makes me the best female fighter of all-time),” Nunes told reporters at a recent UFC 232 news conference. “I’m here for that. That’s why I asked for the fight, because I want to be remembered as the best female ever. I want these two belts for sure, and I want my name in the (UFC) Hall of Fame in the (UFC) Performance Institute (in Las Vegas). I want my name there for history.”
While Nunes may walk out of UFC 232 with two titles, the current bantamweight champion is unsure if she’d keep and defend both.
“My energy is focused on this fight first, then after that we can talk,” Nunes said. “But definitely I will bring this belt home with me. I’m here for that. (UFC) President) Dana White is giving me this opportunity and he knows I’ll be able to do this, and I will prove it.”
