With the UFC bantamweight title up for grabs, a rematch between Gina D’Angelis and Amanda Nunes is a possibility, but it’s not the only possibility.
Gina Dangosio and Amanda “Mackenzie” Nunes are both currently undefeated in the 135-pound division, but they both have the chance to go up against one another, in an exciting matchup.
Both women are coming off of a split decision win over the former Strikeforce champion, as well as a second-round submission loss to Liz Carmouche.
Nunes has since lost two more fights and has now lost three in a row.
She was the last woman to hold the 135 pound belt, which is the UFC’s featherweight title, and her reign was marred by injury and controversial decisions.
But with Dangoesio and Nunes both holding two titles, there is a chance for a rematch, according to the latest UFC Bantamweight Rankings.
The UFC released the rankings last week, and they include both women as two of the top 10 bantamweights in the UFC.
Both are fighters who have the potential to challenge for the 145 pound title and could be fighting for a shot at a UFC title shot in the future.
Nunes is also a four-time UFC BJJ champion.
Dangosiosi and Nunes are fighting in a fight which could be the most important fight of the season, with the UFC taking on the UFC 185 flyweight title fight between Jessica Eye and Gina Rocha.
Both fights are set to air live on UFC Fight Pass on March 24 at 10 p.m.
Nunes will be the first woman to ever defend her 145 pound belt in a UFC match, and she’s a former Strikeweight champion.
If Nunes wins the belt, it would become the first time a woman has ever won it, and Dangoses title reign would also be the longest in the women’s bantamwelterweight division.
D’Angelo won the 135 title from Nunes back in 2014, and has since gone on to hold a record of 1-0 in her last three fights.
Nunes, meanwhile, has won two of her last four bouts.
