Sheila Gaff returns to the UFC this weekend and the German knows the crowd won’t have her back. With UFC 163 coming from Brazil, it’s only natural that a citizen of the country like Amanda Nunes would be the fan favorite.
“I’m mentally prepared for it,” said Gaff to TATAME. “I do not care. I like to be down.”
At UFC 159, Gaff debuted for the promotion with a loss to Sara McMann. It ended her three fight win streak and dropped Gaff to 10-5.
Nunes will step foot inside the Octagon for the first time. She went 1-1 out of Invicta FC and enters off a loss in January.
They’re on the prelims of UFC 163, which can be seen on FX. The event comes from the HSBC Arena this Saturday, August 3.
