It’s Ketlen Vieira’s opinion that Amanda Nunes’ new bantamweight champion should be her next opponent.
Conceding her defeat to Julianna Peña in Saturday’s UFC 277 main event at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Nunes (22-5 MMA, 15-2 UFC) returned to the 135-pound division with an impressive victory.
There isn’t much competition for the dual-championship now that Nunes has reclaimed her crown. Nunes is open to the prospect of a third fight with flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko, but Vieira wants to be the next opponent.
With victories over former bantamweight champion Miesha Tate and, most recently, Holly Holm in the main event of UFC Fight Night 206 in May, Vieira has an impressive record of 13-3 MMA and 7-2 UFC.
