Dana White says it’s obvious to him … Amanda Nunes is the greatest female fighter EVER.
But, when you add men to the mix — is she better than Jon Jones?
White broke it down for us … saying Nunes has not only beaten the best of the best, but destroyed Cris Cyborg — “the most feared fighter out there” — and made it look easy.
Don’t forget, she also dominated Ronda Rousey, Valentina Shevchenko (twice) and Miesha Tate.
Dana says Jon’s got a pretty solid case too … beating the hell out of stars like Shogun Rua, Rampage Jackson, Alexander Gustafsson (twice), Vitor Belfort, Lyoto Machida and Ryan Bader.
Oh, and Dana says he’s SUPER impressed by the fact JJ beat Daniel Cormier on two separate occasions because DC is an “unbelievable” fighter too!
So, who really is the G.O.A.T.?
The best part of the conversation is the fact that BOTH fighters are still active and in their prime — so, it’s a long way until we’ll find out.
Some people say it’s Daniel Cormier. Others say it’s Jon Jones … but Amanda Nunes says when it comes to the greatest MMA fighter ever, SHE’S #1.
Most MMA experts agree Nunes solidified her place as the greatest female fighter ever with her dominant victory over Cris Cyborg at UFC 232.
But, with a resume that boasts wins over Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate and TWO victories over Valentina Shevchenko … ya can’t ignore Amanda’s G.O.A.T. case.
TMZ Sports spoke with the Lioness — who’s still giddy over the win — and she says there’s no doubt she’s the best to ever step in the Octagon.
We also asked about a rematch with Cyborg — and Nunes told us it’ll be at least two years before Cris gets another shot.
In the meantime, Nunes says she’s going back down to 135 pounds to punish the rest of that division.
Nunes says she means no disrespect to Cyborg — there are no hard feelings — but it’s just not a priority for her.
UFC superstar Amanda Nunes says her upcoming fight against Cris Cyborg is the biggest fight of her career — even bigger than her destruction of Ronda Rousey.
Amanda and Cyborg are set to clash at UFC 232 on Dec. 29 in Las Vegas in a championship bout for the women’s featherweight title.
Nunes has won 7 fights in a row, Cyborg’s on a 20-fight win streak — they’re widely considered two of the greatest fighters in women’s MMA history.
And, when we saw Nunes out in NYC, she was downright giddy — telling us how excited she is to get into the Octagon and square up against Cyborg.
Of course, Nunes famously destroyed Ronda Rousey in Dec. 2016 in Ronda’s last ever UFC fight. Since then, she’s defeated Valentina Shevchenko and Raquel Pennington.
Amanda has big plans after the Cyborg fight — she’s engaged to fellow UFC fighter Nina Ansaroff — who’s on a 4-win streak of her own after a victory over Claudia Gadelha earlier this month.
The two are so stoked to the knot, they’re even extending an invitation to Cyborg to attend the wedding!
“Anyone can come! It’s a happy day.”
