UFC 250 Results and Highlights: Cody Stamman and Sean O’Malley steal the show as Amanda Nunes makes history in the main event match.
Amanda Nunes closed off UFC 250 with a very one-sided win over Felicia Spencer in the main event of UFC 250. The featherweight champion, who is also the bantamweight champion, completely dominated her challenger. In the process, she became the first fighter in UFC history to defend active titles in two weight classes.
Nunes ran circles around Nunes all 5 rounds. Except for knocking her out and finishing the match, she did everything right. By the end of the match, the only question in everyone’s mind was if there was anyone good enough to challenge her next.
Elsewhere in the Bantamweight division, Aljamain Sterling lined himself for a title shot for the vacant title. The sudden retirement of Henry Cejudo raised the stakes of the match between Sterling and Cory Sandhagen. With a title shot on the line, the world number 2 won with a quick submission.
Former Champion Cody Gerbrandt reminded everyone that he was still a top threat when knocked Raphael Assunacao with a right hook for the win.
Sean O’Malley also announced his arrival with a knockout win over Eddi Wineland in the first round itself. He feinted an uppercut with his left hand before smashing Wineland with his right hand. O’Malley didn’t even bother to wait as he turned around while the referee checked his collapsed opponent.
Elsewhere, Cody Stamman put aside the personal tragedy of his 18-year-old brother’s untimely death to put on a great performance in his featherweight debut to earn the victory over the veteran Kelleher.
