Arguably the biggest fight in women’s mixed martial arts (MMA) history is set for next month (Sat. December 29, 2018).

UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg will defend her title against 135-pound champion Amanda Nunes. The superfight has been in the works for the past several months. However, Cyborg isn’t happy with how long the fight took to make.

Initially, Nunes called Cyborg out for a superfight with her fellow countrywoman. But once Cyborg asked for the fight to go down at UFC 228, Nunes said she needed more time to prepare. Now, the fight will happen at UFC 232 form Las Vegas.

Cyborg told media members recently, during UFC 230 fight week, she doesn’t have an issue with Nunes. She’s simply upset with how long Nunes made her wait for the fight (via MMA Junkie):

“I don’t have any problem (with Amanda),” Cyborg said. “I just accept the fight with her after I fight Holly Holm and she asks for nine months for training for this fight.

“I think when you call someone out you have to be ready. You don’t have to need nine months to be ready.”

Nunes has the opportunity to make history by becoming the first female dual weight champion in history. Also, she’d be the first woman to have ever won a title in different weight classes in the UFC. That won’t be an easy task, however, as Cyborg vows to make Nunes pay for delaying their fight:

“I accepted to fight her Sept. 8 after she called me out six months before,” Cyborg said.

“She signed the deal to fight in December. As fighters you don’t have the option, you have to wait. You have to keep training and wait. But she’s going to pay in December.”

Amanda Nunes reveals her high expectations should she beat Cris Cyborg. The UFC women’s featherweight champion will take on the UFC women’s bantamweight champion at the UFC 232 pay-per-view event. This bout will serve as the main event.

Nunes holds wins over some of the biggest fighters in her weight class. Those names include Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Germaine de Randamie, Valentina Shevchenko, Raquel Pennington, and Sara McMann.

Thus, Nunes believes that if she can beat Cyborg then it should make her status as the greatest undeniable. This is also due to the fact that Cyborg is widely considered the women’s GOAT.

“Definitely (it makes me the best female fighter of all-time),” Nunes told MMAjunkie. “I’m here for that. That’s why I asked for the fight. Because I want to be remembered as the best female ever.”

Amanda Nunes’ Demands

Nunes continued by stating that she also wants a spot in the UFC Hall of Fame and Performance Institute.

“I want these two belts for sure. I want my name in the (UFC) Hall of Fame in the (UFC) Performance Institute (in Las Vegas). I want my name there for history.”

At this stage in the preparation for this fight, Nunes is purely focused on Cyborg due to the challenge that is in front of her.

“My energy is focused on this fight first, then after that we can talk,” Nunes said. “But definitely I will bring this belt home with me. I’m here for that. (UFC) President) Dana White is giving me this opportunity. He knows I’ll be able to do this. I will prove it.”
