Facing Amanda Lemos in December
FlyweightUFC
August 19, 2021
Nunes (10-7-0) is scheduled to face Amanda Lemos (10-1-1) in a strawweight fight at the UFC's Dec. 18 event, Farah Hannoun of USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
Nunes recently tested positive for COVID-19, but she's expected to make a full recovery and resume training well in advance of the December matchup with Lemos, a winner in each of her four bouts since moving to the 115-pound division. Meanwhile, the 35-year-old Nunes is coming off back-to-back losses, most recently falling to Mackenzie Dern in the first round on April 10 in Las Vegas.
Returns from long layoff with loss
FlyweightUFC
April 10, 2021
Nunes lost to Mackenzie Dern via submission (armbar) at 4:48 of Round 1 at UFC on ABC 2 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Nunes had no business coming in as any sort of favorite considering she hadn't fought since June 2019 due to the birth of her daughter, but a favorite (-130) she was, and Nunes ended up lasting less than a round. To be fair, Nunes could have been fighting regularly during that period of time and she still wouldn't have had any chance on the mat against one of the most decorated submission specialists in the history of the sport. Nunes is going to get a pass for this one considering her time away and the future star potential of Dern, but it's difficult to see her making any sort of run considering she will be turning 36 years of age this coming December.
Returning against Mackenzie Dern
FlyweightUFC
December 21, 2020
Ansaroff is expected to return to the Octagon to take on Mackenzie Dern on April 10, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
The matchup is yet to be officially signed but appears set to go forward. Ansaroff will be searching for her first win since she defeated Claudia Gadelha by unanimous decision back in December of 2018. She lost a unanimous decision against Tatiana Suarez in her only 2019 fight before taking an extended period off due to the birth of her first child. Dern fought three times in 2020, winning two by first-round submission and the third by unanimous decision.
Puts fighting career on hold
FlyweightUFC
October 10, 2019
Ansaroff will take one year off from the UFC in an attempt to have her first child, Marc Raimondi of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Ansaroff hasn't fought since suffering a defeat at UFC 238 in early June, and is now putting her career on hold for a year as she attempts to have a child. She will miss the rest of 2019 and likely most or all of 2020 as a result. The 33-year-old has a 10-6 record as a professional fighter.
