UFC 245 video: Amanda Nunes, Germaine de Randamie respectful in final faceoff

This weekend, Nunes will defend her UFC women's bantamweight title against Germaine de Randamie at UFC 245 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the other corner, former psychiatric nurse and police officer in the Netherlands, Germaine de Randamie, has only lost three fights previously, one of them being a TKO by the current champion and her next opponent. "That's all that matters to me".

She's doubtless improved on the ground as well, but whereas she may have improved in wrestling sufficiently to make it hard for Nunes to take her down again, I'm willing to bet that things still won't go well for her if she manages to allow the Brazilian to get on top.

Nunes is coming off a knockout of former bantamweight champ Holly Holm at UFC 239 in July.

From being fired for lying as a journalist to the crowd's questions about Brexit, Johnson had gained the public's interest. A former candidate for the post of London's mayor, Mr Goldsmith lost his seat as an MP for a second time in three years.

This time It's the turn of Amanda Pacquiao vs Holly Thurman and fans are eager to catch the epic-looking MMA event, channels have legitimately opened the PPV sales so that you can be ready well ahead of the bout. "That's why I asked for the fight, because I want to be remembered as the best female (fighter) ever".

That is to say that Nunes likely won't have as easy of a time taking de Randamie down again as she did in their first tilt, but if and when she does manage to do so, she'll probably be just as much of a problem on the mat as she was the first time around. "If I wanted to be a boxer, I would be". So it's a great fight. He has 13 straight victories in the division, which is tied for the longest win streak within a division in UFC history.

Holloway set his sights on being the best pound-for-pound fighter when he moved up to lightweight to face Dustin Poirer in April for the interim lightweight championship.

"She would have to win enough fights to even get into the UFC to even see Amanda. But I will walk away with my belt". Perhaps fittingly, it is also a chance to avenge her last career loss, as Nunes and de Randamie previously fought six years ago at a time when the two were still developing into the top talents that they are today. "Both guys are in their prime, both guys are truly two of the best in the world at that weight class right now".

Let's just look at her last three and a half years in the octagon.

Nunes is optimistic about repeating the same result on Saturday. She maintains that the love of the competition has pushed her to cut no corners, but the threat of complacency remains a very real one for any athlete. You can also purchase the MMA Fight Pass, which can be used for a single match which costs $9.99 per month. "It's very rare that you're put in a position like this". But she has never been more respected or revered than she is right now.

"Bringing my belt home with me, this is the most important thing", she shared.
