Dual-weight UFC champion Amanda Nunes became a mother for the first time earlier today. The Brazilian knockout artist was alongside her partner, fellow UFC bantamweight Nina Ansaroff as she gave birth to a baby girl.

Nunes took to social media to announce the news alongside a picture of herself, Ansaroff and their newborn – check it out.

Nunes has established herself as the best female fighter in MMA history during a six-year, 11-fight winning streak that dates back nearly six years. ‘The Lioness’ picked up the bantamweight belt at UFC 200 in 2016 and has since defended it five times. Nunes later became a two-division champion by taking out Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos inside one round.

The 32-year-old hinted at retirement before booking a fight against top featherweight contender Megan Anderson at UFC 256 on December 12.

Nunes and Ansaroff have been planning a baby for a long time. Speaking on ESPN’s Be Honest with Cari Champion back in 2017, Ansaroff revealed she would carry the child before returning to competition, she said. “I can pause. Get a baby and then come back. A lot of girls in the UFC already have a baby. There’s a bunch of girls that have babies and go back”.

Coming off a loss to Tatiana Suarez, Ansaroff is currently ranked number 5 in the women’s strawweight division. As of right now, it is unknown if she still plans to come back or exactly when that might be.

Everyone at LowKickMMA sends our congratulations to Amanda Nunes and Nina Ansaroff on the birth of their daughter.

Dual weight UFC champion Amanda Nunes is set to defend her 145lb title against top contender Megan Anderson at UFC 256 on December 12. Brett Okamoto of ESPN broke news for the featherweight title bout on social media, he wrote.

“Breaking: The GOAT returns on Dec. 12. Amanda Nunes (@Amanda_Leoa) vs. Megan Anderson (@MeganA_mma) has been agreed to for UFC 256 in December, per sources.”

Nunes has established herself as the best female fighter in MMA history during a six-year, 11-fight winning streak that dates back nearly six years. ‘The Lioness’ picked up the bantamweight belt at UFC 200 in 2016 and has since defended it five times. Nunes later became a two-division champion by taking out Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos inside one round.

Lately, it has been speculated Nunes would retire from the sport. The Brazilian fed into that narrative during an interview after he most recent win over Felicia Spencer at UFC 250, she said.

“Ah, I don’t know, I’ve achieved everything I wanted. I’m well, I can go on with my life, maybe a new step, maybe find new talents, help some girls there…maybe be a coach, too.

“I’m in a moment that I can retire, you know, and I’m in a moment that I can fight. I’m fine. There’s nothing else to be done right now in the division. The Hall of Fame will come, for sure. My life going forward, if I do stop now, the UFC will give me every support I need to continue having my money and work.”

The UFC bosses appeared to have convinced Nunes to stick around and she will be back fighting sooner than most expected.

Anderson is the challenger charged with dethroning the most dominant female champion in MMA history. The former Invicta FC featherweight titleholder has had mixed form so far during her UFC career. Anderson has lost to Holly Holm and Felicia Spencer. She picked up a controversial win over former title challenger Cat Zingano in between those losses. Lately she has turned things around by scoring back-to-back wins over Norma Dumont and Zarah Fairn.
