In the main event of last night’s UFC 289 pay-per-view, UFC Women’s Featherweight (145 lbs) Champion Amanda Nunes defeated Irene Aldana via unanimous decision to retain the UFC Women’s Bantamweight (135 lbs) Championship.

Amanda completely dominated this fight for 25 minutes and was hit by the opponent only 3 times, as mentioned by the commentators.

After the fight, Amanda announced her retirement from MMA and said she’ll be a Double Champion forever.

You can watch her emotional retirement moment below:

In the post-show press conference, she took a dig at whoever becomes the next champion:

“I’m going to have my belts at home with me. Whoever gets the belt now is going to be just pretending to have it. I’m gone.”

During a recent interview with The New York Post, Amanda was asked if she’d be open to joining WWE after her UFC retirement.

Below is what The Lioness said:

“It depends on the contract, you know? If the contract is amazing, why not?

What I wanted to do in MMA, I did already — even more than I thought in my head when I went through my whole career.

I became a double champion. I wanted only one — I had two… I’m so happy, and whatever comes after I’m done with UFC, we’ll see.

For sure, you guys will see me around anyways.”

After a 15 year MMA career, Nunes retired with a professional record of 23-5. Her last loss was to Julianna Peña in 2021, which she avenged in 2022 and regained her Title.

She holds the record for the most wins & finishes in UFC women’s history. She had a total of 8 successful title defenses at 135 & 145 lbs. She holds a total of 11 UFC title fight victories.

Nunes first became champion in 2016 at UFC 200 and has dominated the sport ever since. She’s considered the greatest women’s MMA fighter of all time, as she has literally defeated every top women’s fighter in UFC.
