BJPENN.com Fighter Picks Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer:
Steven Peterson, UFC featherweight: Amanda Nunes is one of, if not the best female fighter of all time. She has all the tools plus the mindset to dominate every aspect of this fight. I see Nunes by TKO round two.
Randy Costa, UFC bantamweight: Nunes for sure. I don’t think it’s going to be a layup fight for Nunes, but I think it’ll be pretty one-sided. Nunes is extremely relentless with her pressure, tough as nails, and is a legit savage. I think Spencer will be a champ one day for sure but June 6 won’t be that day.
Beneil Dariush, UFC lightweight: This is an interesting matchup. Spencer was tough in her fight against Cris Cyborg but I think Nunes will be too much. Nunes by unanimous decision to defend her belt.
Renato Moicano, UFC lightweight: Nunes will defend her featherweight belt for the first time by knockout. Spencer is tough but Nunes will add another KO win to her record.
Sam Alvey, UFC light heavyweight: Nunes by TKO in the third round.
Mirsad Bektic, UFC featherweight: Nunes by TKO to defend the featherweight strap.
Benito Lopez, UFC bantamweight: Nunes vs. Spencer is a great fight. But, I’ll go with Nunes by TKO or KO. She’ll defend the featherweight belt for the first time.
Giga Chikadze, UFC featherweight: Amanda Nunes will defend her belt. Not sure if she’ll be able to finish Spencer as she is tough but she’ll get the job done.
Tim Elliott, UFC flyweight: Amanda Nunes. I don’t think anyone can beat her regardless of weight class.
Louis Smolka, UFC bantamweight: Amanda, I don’t know if anyone will beat her.
