 Is Amanda Nunes a valid challanger to Ronda Rousey’s crown?

In a division dominated by Ronda Rousey there are few fresh challenges available to the dominant champion, but Brazilian Amanda Nunes may be an exciting future prospect.

Taking on No. 4-ranked Sara McMann, a former title challenger, Nunes was impressive. Nunes dropped McMann with a big right, laid on some brutal ground-and-pound and finally finished the fight with a rear-naked choke.  

While Rousey obviously has a date with Miesha Tate first and the possibility of a mega fight with Cris ‘Cyborg’ hanging over the division, Nunes see herself as a potential future championship challenger.

“Everybody think of me as weak on the ground, but my background is jiu-jitsu and judo. I love the striking, but I’m come from grappling,” she Nunes.

“I’m ready, I’m the lion. Let’s do it … The champion have a fight coming up, maybe I’m next.”
