Next weekend is UFC 239, and though Jon “Picograms” Jones is headlining, it’s really the co-main event that deserves the lion’s share of the attention. Why? Because that co-main has champ Amanda Nunes taking on Holly Holm.
In case you forgot, Nunes won the belt at bantamweight after defeating the likes of Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate and Valentina Shevchenko. Then she moved up a weight class and fought the champ there–Cris Cyborg–and utterly crushed her.
So if Nunes beats Holm, a former champ herself, does that means the Brazilian is the greatest of all time? I mean, what else would she have to do to prove that she’s the best ever?
Ponder that while you watch Nunes take out Cyborg.
