LAS VEGAS — Amanda Nunes proceeded with her strength over ladies in the UFC 259, presenting a seriously overmatched Megan Anderson with an armbar in only two minutes, three seconds Saturday in the co-headliner of UFC 259 at Apex.
Nunes, broadly viewed as the best female warrior ever in blended combative techniques, overwhelmed from the beginning. She hit the altogether taller Anderson with a correct hand on the jaw around 10 seconds into the battle and it went easy from now on for the Aussie.
Anderson became weary of getting punched in the head and went for a weak takedown endeavor. Nunes handily stuffed it and fueled Anderson onto her back.

Nunes, who has a dark belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, got Anderson’s back and appeared to be going to set up a back bare gag finish. As Anderson shook liberated from that, Nunes got Anderson’s arm and deftly moved to an armbar. Anderson tapped very quickly, giving the twofold top dog her first success by accommodation since she stifled out Miesha Tate to win the bantamweight title in 2016 at UFC 200.
The success was the twelfth in succession for Nunes, who has no challengers not too far off at one or the other bantamweight or featherweight who figure to give her a genuine test. The UFC doesn’t have numerous female featherweights, and Nunes has devastated the ones they do have.
Bantamweight is a strong division, yet there is nobody there who might be viewed as a genuine danger.
Nunes hasn’t lost since she gassed late in a Sept. 27, 2014, battle at UFC 178 and was halted by Cat Zingano. From that point forward, she’s won 12 in progression, including six by KO and two by accommodation.
She’d won every one of her two past battles by choice and came out with fire in her eyes on Saturday. Anderson, who appeared to be tight, never had an opportunity.
