Megan Anderson knows what she’s up against the next time she sets foot in the octagon.
The UFC women’s featherweight is set to face two-division champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 256 on Dec. 12. Nunes, UFC women’s featherweight and bantamweight champion, is considered by many the greatest female fighter in MMA. Nunes (19-4 MMA, 12-1 UFC) hasn’t lost a bout since 2014 and has looked far superior than her opponents in her most recent performances.
Anderson (11-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC) is a former Invicta FC champion and currently on a two-fight winning streak. And although she has a good resume herself, she knows what a monumental task is on the horizon.
In a recent video posted on Twitter, Anderson mixed her personal training footage with clips of media members discussing the gap between Nunes and the rest of the UFC female contenders.
Although some betting sites already have Anderson as a +400 underdog, the Australian fighter has long been confident in her ability to capture UFC gold.
