Amanda Nunes UFC

Jason Silva-USA Today Sports

UFC Fight For The Troops 3 event just got a little deeper, as the UFC has booked a women’s bantamweight fight between Amanda Nunes and Germaine de Randamie. Both of these fighters have a chance to move up the division in hopes of a title shot, where Ronda Rousey is currently the champion. This bout was confirmed by the UFC on their Twitter page:

“New bout: Germaine de Randamie @IronLadyMMA and @Amanda_Leoa Nunes go head-to-head at November 6″

Both fighters have the chance to quickly jump up the rankings, and they will be looking to make an impression for the veteran crowd. Nunes comes into this bout off an impressive TKO win over Sheila Gaff back at UFC 163. In the bout, Nunes was able to display her brutal ground and pound skills, and it couldn’t have come at a better time, as this was her UFC debut.

Randamie comes into this pivotal bout also off an important win over Julie Kedzie. It was a split decision win, but a win nonetheless, and it was also Randamie’s UFC debut. Germaine is relatively new to the sport of MMA, but she has still shown to be a capable fighter. She will be looking to defeat Nunes, which would be one of her biggest wins over her career.

Currently, Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey are set to square off for the second time for the bantamweight championship, but the winner of the Nunes vs. Randamie bout could very well be next in line for a title shot, making their bout all the more important.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.
