Amanda Nunes is currently 21-4-0 in her professional MMA career. “The Lioness” has been in the UFC for 8 years and has only lost once in her entire time in the promotion. Nunes is yet to be tested in both, the featherweight and the bantamweight divisions, where she is the champion. But there is a fighter that has watched Nunes very up close and personal.

Kayla Harrison is a teammate of Amanda and is very familiar with the style and dominance of Nunes in a fight. Harrison is an Olympic medalist and a two-time PFL champion. She is currently a free agent and is yet to select her next move in the world of MMA. Both the fighter and top promotions like UFC and Bellator MMA have teased a collaboration.

The chances that Kayla might end up in the UFC are not too bad given both the parties have met with each other many times. If Kayla does end up in the UFC, do you think a matchup with her and Amanda would be the fight to make? Who do you think is winning that one?
