UFC 250: Amanda Nunes to defend featherweight belt against Canadian Felicia Spencer

UFC featherweight champion Amanda Nunes (19-4-0) is back on deck.

The UFC confirmed during the UFC 249 broadcast that the undisputed champion will defend her crown against Canadian Felicia Spencer (8-1-0) at UFC 250 in June.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the UFC to postpone UFC 250 from its original May 9 date to June 6.

Nunes, 31, is enjoying a 10 fight win streak, including a tough decision win over Germaine De Randamie at UFC 245 last December.

Spencer, 29, decisioned Zarah Fairn Dos Santos at UFC on ESPN+ 27 in February. With only 1 defeat to Cris Cyborg, the Montreal, Quebec native and former teacher is understandably confident about her chances against Nunes.

UFC 250 is scheduled for June 6 at a location to be determined. Current bouts include:

Amanda Nunes (19-4-0) vs. Felicia Spencer (8-1-0)

Raphael Assuncao (27-7-0) vs. Cody Garbrandt (11-3-0)

Jussier Formaga (23-7-0) vs. Alex Perez (23-5-0)

Ian Heinisch (13-3-0) vs. Gerald Meerschaert (30-12-0)

Devin Clark (11-4-0) vs. Alonzo Menifield (9-0-0)

More bouts are expected to be announced.
