On Saturday night, “The Lioness” tweeted that she wants to win the UFC featherweight title too and wants to challenge the winner of Holm vs. de Randamie at UFC 208, which takes place in February.
I’m ready to make wmma history…. I want the winner. @danawhite @ufc @seanshelby vamos Fazer historia no mundo quero lutar com quem ganhar.
Nunes, 28, defended her belt against Rousey in just 48 seconds by TKO due to punches at UFC 207. After amassing a three-fight win streak, the Brazilian mixed martial artist also stunned Miesha Tate early on via knee and punches and then won the fight by submission (rear-naked choke) in the first round at UFC 200. That’s when Nunes cemented herself as the women’s bantamweight champion.
If things don’t go Nune’s way, she still has a few challenges coming up in her division. Julianna Peña and Valentina Shevchenko will meet in the main event of UFC on FOX 23, the winner of the bout potentially has a match up with Nunes.
Stay tuned tofor much more updates to come.
