Amanda Nunes made history in the defense of the dominant UFC title

LAS VEGAS – Amanda Nunes became the first UFC fighter to defend a championship belt while holding titles in two heavyweight classes on Saturday night, getting a dominant unanimous decision over featherweight competitor Felicia Spencer at UFC 250.

Former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt also defeated Raphael Assunção shortly before the second round bell at the main event together at a fanless gym on the UFC corporate campus in Las Vegas.

The UFC 250 is the second event held at the Apex UFC fitness center in the hometown of promotions since the resumption of competition amid a coronavirus pandemic. The Apex Octagon is 25 feet in diameter instead of the usual 30 feet, and the melee produced a number of entertaining touches, including a spectacular KO by Garbrandt and fellow bantam star star “Suga” Sean O’Malley.

Nunes (20-4), considered the greatest female warrior in the history of mixed martial arts, is the UFC champion for the bantamweight and featherweight divisions.

While Nunes’ dominance was tested in the final battle against Germaine De Randamie’s bantam class in December, the relatively inexperienced Spencer (8-2) provided a slight challenge for the champion, apart from the possibility of breaking his hand in a recurring collision with Spencer’s face.

Nunes hit the slower Spencer with his frightening attack power from the start, cutting off the challenger’s face and then sending the spokesman flying away during the third round. Spencer has an evil hematoma that grows on his forehead after the fourth round.

Nunes has comfortably defended his fur-class belt for the first time since taking it from Cris “Cyborg” Justino in December 2018. He has defended bantam-class belts five times since 2016.

Garbrandt (12-3) lost three times in a row before this impressive performance ended with a right-hand cross that toppled Assunção in the final seconds of the second half. Garbrandt retreated to the fence, avoided Assunção’s right hand and landed a perfect shot at the face, sending Assunção to the back and the first face to the canvas.

The win was Garbrandt’s first since December 2016, when he defeated Dominick Cruz for the 135 pound title.

O’Malley (12-0) opened the pay-per-view portion of the UFC 250 with a knockout from veteran Eddie Wineland, which was only held once at 1:54 in their fight.

O’Malley’s right hand into the jaw deposited Wineland flat on his back with his hand still raised. O’Malley haughtily walked away from his punch in the presence of unreasonable Wineland or the referee knew what was happening.

“When you are as fast and accurate as me, I will land first and I will land earlier,” O’Malley said. “And I landed on the button.”

Then, Aljamain Sterling made Cory Sandhagen collapse with his back choked in only 88 seconds in battle to determine the next opponent for the bantamweight title. Sterling (19-3), who had five consecutive wins, quickly locked the full body triangle and suffocated inside to finish Sandhagen, who knocked right before going to sleep.

Lightweight Devin Clark took the knee with his fist raised in the air during the pre-battle introduction from Bruce Buffer. Clark then won with a unanimous decision over the previously undefeated prospect, Alonzo Menifield, survived through his left eye that was covered by a punch.

Clark and teammate Jon Jones spent time on the streets of Albuquerque last weekend, talking to protesters and helping in the clean-up efforts for property damage.

Clark did not speak to the media after his struggle, instead going to the hospital for immediate treatment.

But Sterling spoke in support of widespread protests after George Floyd’s death in his post-war interview.

“The world is a mess now, especially America,” Sterling said. “We have a lot going on in this country. This is a great country, but there are many things that need to be changed, especially the injustices that occur in minorities across America. This is for everyone at home fighting against the good, protesting. I support you guys. I was with you all the way. “

Featherweight Cody Stamann had the dominant decision on Brian Kelleher just 10 days after the death of 18-year-old Stamann’s brother, Jacob.

“It’s been very difficult,” said Stamann, who looked emotional inside the cage. “I’ve struggled all day. I have to commit myself and be a man and finish this for my family, for myself. “

The UFC led the North American sport back last month with three shows in Florida. President Dana White is determined to hold shows almost every week in the future, and he still intends to hold a fight this summer on a private island dubbed “Fight Island.”

Although White has kept a secret location where he will hold battles between fighters who cannot reach the US due to the coronavirus travel restrictions, Herbert Burns who lightly let slip that Fight Island was in Abu Dhabi after he defeated Evan Dunham in the opening battle of the UFC 250.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
