UFC two-division champion Amanda Nunes is the latest mixed martial artist that is contemplating retirement following her most recent victory at UFC 250.
The women’s featherweight champion defended her belt 8 days ago in Las Vegas, defeating Canada’s Felicia Spencer via UD. The win marked her 11 consecutive victories, as her last loss came back in 2014.
Following the bout with Spencer, ‘The Lioness’ said that she’ll most likely sit out for the rest of 2020 due to personal reasons.
One week later, however, Nunes has changed her tone. In an interview with Brazilian TV show Esporte Espetacular, the double-champion opened the door to retirement.
“Ah, I don’t know, I’ve achieved everything I wanted,” Nunes said. “I’m well, I can go on with my life, maybe take a new step, maybe find new talents, help some girls there…maybe be a coach, too.
“I’m in a moment that I can retire, you know, and I’m in a moment that I can fight. I’m fine. There’s nothing else to be done right now in the division. The Hall of Fame will come, for sure. My life going forward, if I do stop now, the UFC will give me every support I need to continue having my money and work.”
