Overall, Nunes is riding an 11-fight win streak dating back to 2015, with seven of th wins coming against current or former UFC titleholders. Unlike other dual-belt holders, she has actually been able to defend both belts at the same time, and will attempt to do so against a former Invicta featherweight champion in Anderson.
Anderson is riding a two-fight win streak with first-round finishes against Norma Dumont Viana and Zarah Fairn Dos Santos. Before those bouts was a first-round submission loss to Felicia Spencer, who went onto challenge Nunes and lose via unanimous decision.
Nunes figures to be an overwhelming favorite, but the UFC has certainly seen some shocking outcomes before.
