Cris Cyborg lobbies Dana White to book Amanda Nunes rematch for UFC 300: ‘I would love to add it to the card’


Cris Cyborgs urges Dana White to book Amanda Nunes rematch fight on UFC 300 card

Former undisputed featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg has urged Dana White to book a long-anticipated rematch between herself and fellow Brazilian favorite, Amanda Nunes on a blockbuster UFC 300 card – amid hints from the latter that she is already weighing up her June retirement from last year.

Cyborg, a former undisputed featherweight champion under the banner of the UFC, departed the White-led organization back in 2019, before joining Bellator MMA the following year and turning in a stunning six-fight winning run – all of which in undisputed featherweight championship fight wins.

Nunes, a Bahia-native and former bantamweight, featherweight, and undisputed champion, headlined UFC 289, back in Canada, in June. Nunes successfully won another title defense with a unanimously decided shutout victory over Mexican challenger Irene Aldana on short notice. 

Fighting Brazilian counterpart, Cyborg for the featherweight title back in 2018, Nunes minted herself as a duel-weight champion, landing a vicious opening minute knockout win over the veteran – handing Cris Cyborg her first professional loss since a defeat in her mixed martial arts debut all the way back in 2005.
