UFC Women’s Featherweight contender Felicia Spencer think that she has done enough to get a title shot against champion Amanda Nunes.
Felicia Spencer secured a 1st-round TKO win over Zarah Fairn in the co-main event at UFC Norfolk. This win over Fairn boosted Spencer’s UFC record to 2-1 with another stoppage win over Megan Anderson in her Octagon debut and a UD loss to Cris Cyborg in her 2nd UFC fight.
Megan Anderson, who also competed on the card, threw a potential spanner in the works after picking up a vicious 1st-round KO over Norma Dumont of her own. This means that a title shot for Spencer is not a certainty, and it will come down to who the UFC see as a better fit to go against Nunes, between her and Anderson.
Felicia Spencer spoke with MMAjunkie.com and told them that she believes she has done enough to earn a title shot against Amanda Nunes.
“I do have a win over Megan. We both got first-round finishes tonight, so it was an interesting night for that. I think it turned out the way a lot of people expected and I could definitely see myself getting that shot and I think I earned it,” Spencer said.
The fact that Spencer does have a solid win over Anderson in 2019 could be the deciding factor in her getting the title shot over her rival. One thing is certain though – it’s either going to be Spencer or Anderson for Nunes next. Amanda Nunes was impressed by both performances from the two women at UFC Norfolk.
“I didn’t really get to see Megan perform, I heard it was great, but I think I put myself in a great position to get a shot. So we just need to have a conversation with the UFC,” Spencer said.
