The full card lineup for UFC 250 has been revealed with a main event headliner between UFC women’s featherweight champion Amanda Nunes and Felicia Spencer.

The full lineup for UFC 250 was announced by UFC president Dana White on ESPN Sportscenter, with 11 fights scheduled to take place. The card is set for June 6 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, and airs live on pay-per-view. Check out the full card below.

UFC 250 Main Card (PPV)

Women’s featherweight title bout: Amanda Nunes (C) vs. Felicia Spencer
Bantamweight bout: Raphael Assuncao vs. Cody Garbrandt
Bantamweight bout: Aljamain Sterling vs. Cory Sandhagen
Welterweight but: Neil Magny vs. Anthony Rocco Martin
Bantamweight bout: Sean O’Malley vs. Eddie Wineland

UFC 250 Preliminary Card (ESPN)

Featherweight bout: Chase Hooper vs. Alex Caceres
Middleweight bout: Ian Heinisch vs. Gerald Meerschaert
Featherweight bout: Brian Kelleher vs. Cody Stamann
Middleweight bout: Maki Pitolo vs. Charles Byrd
Flyweight bout: Alex Perez vs. Jussier Formiga
Light heavyweight bout: Alonzo Menifield vs. Devin Clark

On the whole, the UFC 250 card looks solid from top to bottom. There’s a title fight at the top of the bill between Nunes and Spencer, and there are three excellent bantamweight bouts on the main card between Garbrandt and Assuncao, Sandhagen, and Sterling, and O’Malley and Wineland. The preliminary card is also strong with a number of action fighters and prospects on it.

However, most fans on social media still believe the card needed a stronger main event than Nunes vs. Spencer. While Nunes is the No. 1 women’s pound-for-pound fighter on the planet, most fans feel that a PPV event of this caliber should have had another title fight. The UFC has been putting on two title fights on its recent PPV events, so for UFC 250 to only have one title fight is a bit surprising. Then again, considering the short-notice nature of this event, perhaps there weren’t any other title fights available to be added to it.

What do you think of the full UFC 250 lineup?
