It was supposed to happen on May 9 in Brazil, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, UFC 250 was postponed. On May 22, a promotional poster for the re-booked event was released, showing a new date of June 6, and if all works out, it’ll happen at the UFC’s APEX facility in Las Vegas.
Felicia Spencer, the former Invicta Featherweight champion, will be looking to regain champ status by challenging Amanda Nunes at UFC 250. Action is set for June 6. Get your MMA odds at Bovada today
A Featherweight title bout between Amanda Nunes (19-4) and Felicia Spencer (8-1) is still the main attraction. Somehow Nunes has become an even bigger favorite than when the event was first set. The women’s top pound-for-pound fighter went from —400 to —600 on the UFC odds board, with Spencer’s odds lengthening from +300 to +400 in the process.
Does Spencer have a chance at stripping the first female champ-champ of one of two titles? Despite making a name for herself when she upset Megan Anderson at UFC Fight Night 152, Spencer is fairly soft competition for Nunes, who has victories over five UFC title holders, including Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino and Germaine de Randamie. Perhaps challenging Nunes for the Featherweight belt is a wise approach, as Nunes has absolutely dominated the UFC’s Bantamweight division for six years. But with Nunes entering the Octagon on a 10-fight win streak, and Spencer having competed in just three UFC fights at this point in her career, the odds are against the 29-year-old Montrealer.
