What a Main Card it’s Been at UFC 239… Amanda Nunes is Surely the GOAT of Women’s MMA and One of the Greatest All-Time Fighters Ever After Adding Holly Holm to Her Brutal List of Scalps…
Amanda Nunes has the most fights (11), wins (10), stoppages (8) and first-round finishes (7) in UFC women’s bantamweight history. The woman is an absolute beast. ‘The Lioness’ is also the UFC’s first openly gay champion, male or female. It’s a mystery why she hasn’t been promoted properly by the company.
Possessing ludicrous power and a great Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu game, Nunes is a fearsome opponent. Miesha Tate, Valentina Shevchenko, Ronda Rousey, and Cris Cyborg have all lost to the bantamweight and featherweight champion. The last two were crushed by brutal KOs.
Now you can add Holly Holm to that list of savage beatings. Check out her crushing victory over another female legend. This is one of the sweetest head kicks that you will ever see.
Amanda Nunes retains her bantamweight title with a thunderous head kick against Holly Holm.

Nunes beat Holm at her own game. A renowned kickboxer with a very impressive record, ‘The Preacher’s Daughter’ famously put a striking clinic on Ronda Rousey, before head-kicking her into oblivion and finishing her with ground-and-pound. Nunes did literally the same thing to the former bantamweight champion.
That head kick that she landed was an absolute thunderbolt. On a night where we saw some savage finishes – Ben Askren still doesn’t where he is and Luke Rockhold’s competitive career basically ended – this was up there with the best. Nunes is just quite simply a destroyer.

The champion acknowledged that she’s one of the best in the business. She said that she wanted to beat Holm because she’s one of the only champions that she hadn’t fought before. It was a great night for Nunes with many of her fellow professionals giving her some love online for her achievements.
“A lot of people say, whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” Nunes said in her post-fight interview. “But these belts go home with me!”
That’s for sure. You wouldn’t want to be the person who tries to take them away from her. She’s just a beast.
