With barely two weeks to go until the event, the UFC has released the official poster for UFC 250. And the battle of nations between Canada and Brazil looms large.
UFC 250 is, of course, headlined by double-champ Amanda Nunes, defending her featherweight title against rising star Felicia Spencer. The event is set to take place on June 6, airing live on PPV, likely from Las Vegas. While that depends on approval from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, all signs are that the card is a go.
With that in mind, here comes the UFC 250 official poster, with both Nunes and Spencer sporting their respective home country’s colors.
Nunes (19-4), who also holds bantamweight gold inside the UFC, has been on an incredible tear ever since 2015. A 10-fight win streak has seen her claim two titles, and pick up wins over the likes of Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Holly Holm, Germaine de Randamie, Sara McMann, Valentina Shevchenko, and Cris Cyborg.
In short, a murder’s row, and frankly a who’s who of female fighters. UFC 250, however, marks the first time she will defend her 145lb title — and she’ll be facing a very motivated “FeeNom” when she does.
Felicia Spencer (8-1) wore featherweight gold in Invicta FC, and is one of the UFC’s true 145lb female fighters. She’s 2-1 inside the octagon, with wins over Megan Anderson and Zarah Fairn. Her only career loss came to Cris Cyborg at UFC 240 last July — a fight which saw Spencer go the distance with one of the most feared names in the division.
