Amanda Nunes became the first Brazilian woman to win for the UFC by making quick work of Sheila Gaff on the prelims of UFC 163. The 2:08 fight was no surprise to Nunes.
“I really was expecting to win that fight really fast and that’s what you get when training hard,” said Nunes through a translator to MMA Fighting. “I studied the tapes and beat her a–.”
Brazil’s Nunes comes to the UFC from Strikeforce and Invicta FC and is 8-3. She dropped her lone Strikeforce appearance and went 1-1 for Invicta FC, last competing in January.
Gaff is now 0-2 for the UFC, having suffered another first round loss to Sara McMann at April’s UFC 159. It makes the German 10-6 as a pro.
They served as the only women’s fight on the card. UFC 163 was yesterday, August 3, and their bout aired live on FX.
