Amanda Nunes vs. Germaine de Randamie Live Stream, UFC 245

The UFC makes a stop in Las Vegas for its final pay-per-view event of 2019. UFC 245 features three title fights at the top of the PPV card. In the main event, welterweight champion Kamaru Usman faces former interim champion Colby Covington. In the co-main event, featherweight titleholder Max Holloway meets Alexander Volkanovski. Before those bouts, Amanda Nunes puts her UFC women’s bantamweight belt on the line against Germaine de Randamie.

UFC 245 marks the second meeting between Nunes and De Randamie. The first fight between these two took place on the prelims of the UFC: Fight for the Troops 3 card in November 2013. The contest lasted 3:56. Nunes won the bout via TKO. Since that fight, Nunes has claimed both the UFC women’s bantamweight and featherweight titles. She is currently on a nine-fight winning streak. De Randamie, who became the inaugural women’s featherweight champion with a win over former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm, is unbeaten in five fights since she lost to Nunes.

Nunes is establishing herself as one of the best women fighters in the history of the UFC. With her knockout win over Holm, she has defeated every woman who has ever held the 135 and 145-pound titles in the women’s division. What makes that fact even more impressive is that each of those wins came via first-round stoppage.

De Randamie, who was stripped of the 145-pound title when she refused to face Cris Cyborg, is the only one of those fighters who has received a rematch against Nunes. She addressed her loss to Nunes at the recent “UFC 245 Athlete Panel.”

Today In: Business
“She made me wake up. I can say I’m a mixed martial artist now, not just a kickboxer, said De Randamie. The difference will be I’m a mixed martial artist and not a kickboxer,”

The challenger, who has four career knockout wins on her record, does not expect the champion, who has 13 knockout victories to tangle with her on the feet.
