“Let’s do it!” – Amanda Nunes reacts to Michael Bisping’s suggestion of 130-pound BMF women’s fight with Valentina Shevchenko


Amanda Nunes is open to the possibility of taking on Valentina Shevchenko in a full-length trilogy fight. Nunes and Shevchenko are two of the most dominant champions in UFC history. While “Bullet” is the reigning women’s flyweight champion, “The Lioness” holds the bantamweight and featherweight women’s titles.

During a recent interaction with Amanda Nunes, UFC analyst Michael Bisping asked her if she was interested in fighting Shevchenko for the third time; this time, however, at a weight of 130 pounds and with a BMF women’s title on the line. In response, Nunes said she was definitely up to it.

“That would be great you know let’s go! I’m ready baby. No more belts, no more challenges I’m here for those you know? That’s it, MMA is a sport [where] you have to challenge yourself every time, ”Nunes said.

Nunes and Shevchenko have battled in a pair of bantamweight scraps before, with the Brazilian winning each time. They met for the first time at UFC 196, where Amanda Nunes got the better of her opponent in the first two of three rounds scheduled and was rightly declared the winner by decision.

The pair locked their horns again at UFC 215 and this time around it turned out to be a much closer affair. While Nunes was once again announced as the winner by decision, many fans and analysts have claimed Shevchenko should have been given the green light instead.

Dana White speaks out on possibility of Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko trilogy fight

While Amanda Nunes is set to take on Shevchenko in a trilogy fight, UFC President Dana White doesn’t seem interested in the game. He thinks the rivalry is pretty much settled and doesn’t feel the need to push it off again. However, White admitted that if both fighters are up and it’s a game fans want to see, he might consider booking it.

“I don’t know if this fight should take place. I do not know. I thought about it a lot. You know they’re both amazing in their own weight class. They have fought twice already. Why start over? I imagine if they wanted to do it enough and the fans wanted it enough, I would but I don’t see much of it, ”White said in an interview with TSN.

Nunes is set to defend her bantamweight title against Julianna Pena in UFC 269 co-star this weekend.
