Amanda Nunes will go down as possibly the greatest female MMA fighter of all-time thanks to her UFC exploits.

She is a two-division champion and no one seems to be able to beat her. The Lioness, as she is called, also has started a family with Nina Ansaroff and the pair were blessed with a baby girl in 2020.
