It’s beginning to look unlikely that Amanda Nunes is going to lose a bout anytime soon, as she made quick work of Holly Holm — a formidable opponent — at UFC 239 on Saturday night.
Nunes put on a show for the fans at T-Mobile Arena, making it clear that the women’s bantamweight champion is at a level above her competition, as she embarks on a run more impressive than the one knockout artist Ronda Rousey once went on.
She’s just such a complete fighter, and she showed that in Saturday’s fight, when she used a flurry of punches and kicks to knock out Holm. Check out this sick head kick that knocked Holm down, and then a strong right hand by Nunes to punish her off late in the first round.
And then came the victory lap, because of course.
