Amanda Nunes Leaves American Top Team To Start Own MMA Gym
Amanda Nunes is looking for change.
And that change includes leaving American Top Team to start her own gym in Florida, Combate reported. Nunes has been part of ATT for nearly eight years.
Interesting tidbit for anyone that didn’t know…
Amanda Nunes left MMA Masters when she lost to Cat Zingano and joined ATT.
She finally lost at ATT and is now leaving to start her own gym.

Nunes made a similar move after her third-round TKO loss in September 2014.
She had left her prior gym and joined American Top Team. Here, she became a two-divisional champion and went on a 12-fight winning streak, simultaneously becoming one of the biggest names in women’s MMA.
On her resume, she holds victories against Cris Cyborg, Ronda Rousey, Valentina Shevchenko (two times) and Holly Holm.
Nunes lost her bantamweight belt to Julianna Peña at UFC 269. After the loss, Nunes said she was more than willing to have a rematch with Peña and will get her “sh-t together.”
UFC President Dana White confirmed he would setup the rematch.
