UFC bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes and strawweight contender Nina Ansaroff are engaged

Amanda Nunes, Nina Ansaroff

UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes and her long-time girlfriend and training partner Nina Ansaroff are now engaged. The pair announced this happy news on their respective social media channels.

At present, there’s no news on the date and setting of the pair’s wedding.

Amanda Nunes (16-4) last fought in May, when she defeated Raquel Pennington by fifth-round TKO. This win marked her third successful title defense. She previously defended the title with a decision defeat of Valentina Shevchenko and a first-round knockout of Ronda Rousey. She won the title with a first-round submission of Miesha Tate. Nunes, who is currently on a seven-fight streak, has recently been linked to a featherweight title superfight with dominating divisional champ Cris Cyborg, though this bout is far from official at present.

Nina Ansaroff (9-5), meanwhile, last fought in late July, when she defeated Randa Markos by unanimous decision. This win was her third in a row, as she’s also recently defeated Angela Hill and Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger.

Congratulations to Nina Ansaroff and Amanda Nunes!
