Welcome to fight week! With the UFC putting on events regularly and returning to Las Vegas for what seems like the long-term, the promotion is looking to entertain millions of fans during an unsettling time. UFC 250 will be taking place this Saturday, June 6 and it will feature four athletes all on different paths.
Check out the above video for a ‘UFC Countdown’ special. It will focus on the main and co-main event of the night.
- Amanda Nunes will look to defend her UFC Featherweight Title for the first time since beating Cris Cyborg for the title. Taking out all of the bantamweights in her path, the UFC Bantamweight Champion is ready for the next challenge in her career. If she wins on Saturday, she will be the first fighter in UFC history to defend two belts while holding them at the same time.
- Felicia Spencer, who Cyborg beat on her way out of the UFC, rebounded with a dominant performance against Zarah Fairn Dos Santos in February. The 29-year-old “Feenom” is looking to surprise those that consider her the underdog.
- A former UFC Bantamweight Champion, Cody Garbrandt is on a three-fight losing streak. All three losses have come via some form of knockout. Now, “No Love” must work his way back to the top of the world.
- Once considered a contender in bantamweight, Raphael Assuncao is on a two-fight losing streak. Facing steep competition, he will look to become the one who ends his bad luck.
