Amanda Nunes Stopped Sheila Gaff By Studying Tapes

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.
