Amanda Nunes is not settling for less as she believes she is the greatest female mixed martial artist of all time.
The 31-year-old mixed martial artist became a two-division UFC champion after knocking out superstar Cris Cyborg back in December.
At a Monday’s UFC 239 press conference, the Brazilian declared herself as the GOAT of the UFC, referencing the victories over star opponents like Cris Cyborg, Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate.
Nunes admitting that she’s the GOAT because people’s opinion about her is correct and she can’t but believe what people have told her coupled with the way she has been able to defeat.
“Yeah, it’s for sure,” Nunes said (via MMA Junkie). “I am the greatest of all time. I beat the most dominating woman on the planet. I feel like I deserve it now.”
“A lot of people have been saying (it),” she said. “All the things– everybody sends a message for me, a lot of letters at the gym. I have a bunch of letters that I have to send back to the fans. … Every time I sign them, I sit back. Everybody tells me now (I’m the greatest). I have to say I am, because people tell me, everybody tells me. I believe them and now I say I am. I deserve everything that I have in my life.
“I proved it. I’m the best – I proved it,” Amanda Nunes added. “I’ve been doing everything people like to see: knock people out, and submissions, and go in there to fight. Don’t run. Put (on) a show. I feel like the fans like that and they respect me for that. And I feel good – I feel happy when they tell me I’m the best. I’m too happy.”
Nunes will defend her bantamweight title as she goes out to contest in the co-main event of UFC 239 the former champ Holly Holm.
