After Cyborg's dominant victory at UFC 222, many called for the women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes to go up a weight class to face fellow Brazilian and featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg. She has defended her strap twice, firstly finishing Ronda Rousey in the first minute of the fight in impressive fashion, and then won a very close bout with Shevchenko via split decision.
Although Nunes (15-4 MMA, 8-1 UFC) vs. Pennington (9-5 MMA, 6-2 UFC) was expected, UFC President Dana White toyed with the idea of scrapping it to ensure a champion vs. champion showdown between Nunes and featherweight titleholder Cyborg (20-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC).

Nunes comes into this fight on a six fight winning streak. Since signing for the UFC, "Rocky" has defeated names such as Roxanne Modafferi, Jessica Andrade, and most recently, Miesha Tate. White had said after Cyborg's win at UFC 222 that he was considering that fight and that it "needs to happen". And now she's calling me out, I'm not calling Amanda out. However, Cyborg expressed when asked about that possibility that it was just too soon.
