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.
