BJPENN.com Fighter Picks: Amanda Nunes vs. Germaine de Randamie 2:
Kevin Lee, UFC lightweight: That is a f**king good fight. That is a better fight than people give credit for. You have to give it to Amanda because she is the best to ever do it and anytime you count her out she is going to step up. She has so much power and the power will be a factor. Germaine is very smart and will be able to choose her shots. That is a tough one but I am going with Amanda, but Germaine can give her a run for her money.
Alexander Volkanovski, UFC featherweight: That is a good fight. Nunes is unbelievable and no matter the style she takes everyone out. GDR is a very good striker. But, Nunes has so many ways she can go as her wrestling and ground game is underrated. I think Nunes wins but it will be a competitive fight.
Geoff Neal, UFC welterweight: Amanda Nunes 100 percent. She is on a roll and nobody will stop her anytime soon until Macy Chiasson gets up there and will take her out. But, right now, she will continue her streak and run through GDR.
Ricky Simon, UFC bantamweight: I’ve been excited for this fight but the way Amanda has been I can’t go against her, so I think she wins.
Kai Kara-France, UFC flyweight: Amanda is going to use her wrestling a bit more in this fight and that will be the difference. Maybe she picks up a submission or a decision.
Cody Stamann, UFC bantamweight: Amanda Nunes. She is a monster. She is the killer, she walks you down and beats your ass. No one in the women’s division can do what she does. There is a massive gap from her to the next person.
Ian Heinisch, UFC middleweight: Amanda Nunes for sure. She is the GOAT and will defend the belt again.
Irene Aldana, UFC bantamweight: I think Nunes gets it done. She is unstoppable now.
Billy Quarantillo, UFC featherweight: Amanda Nunes all day. She is the best fighter of all time and she beat GDR once already. It is hard to pick against her.
Joe Solecki, UFC lightweight: I don’t think Amanda Nunes is going to lose in a long time. She is on fire and will get it done here.
