Apr 30, 2020 - by Colin Vassallo

The current UFC Women’s Bantamweight and Featherweight champion Amanda Nunes has said that she would be open to join WWE once her MMA career comes to an end.

“Not right now, but maybe later when I retire,” Nunes, who is 31 years old told Sports Illustrated. “I’m open to it. Why not? I could try something new.”

Nunes, who has a 19-4 record and hasn’t lost since 2014, beat both Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler during her MMA careered earlier this month posted a video when she beat Baszler in the UFC in March 2015. “That was a huge moment in my career,” Nunes told SI. “It’s not about showing people that I hurt her, it’s a reminder to me about believing in my coach. My coach at the time wanted me to drop her with the leg kick, and that’s what happened.”

A year later, Nunes went through another Four Horsewoman and the biggest name in women’s MMA at the time, Ronda Rousey. That was Rousey’s last fight in mixed martial arts. “That fight against Ronda was a huge one. I had Ronda Rousey in the back of my mind for so long, and I was ready for that opportunity.” And ready she was as Nunes defeated Ronda in just 48 seconds.
