Two-division UFC women’s champion Amanda Nunes was in a celebratory mood after making history at UFC 250, as she shared a reworking of her 2019 ESPN Body Issue cover, featuring her two UFC title belts.
Nunes dominated Canadian challenger Felicia Spencer at UFC 250 in Las Vegas on June 6th to cement her status as the greatest female fighter in UFC history and become the first UFC “champ champ” to make successful defenses of both their titles while still an active two-division world champion.
Following her victory at the UFC Apex, Nunes shared a host of photos to her Instagram page, including shots taken with her team after her win, and on the gym mats at her training base at American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida.
But the most memorable image featured a Photoshopped version of her ESPN Body Issue cover shot from 2019, where she was photographed naked for the US sports broadcaster’s iconic annual issue.
Hand-to-hand combat champion Nunes performing a Muay Thai knee was Photoshopped onto a picture of a lioness holding a UFC championship belt in its mouth while a second title was on the ground, held down by its paw.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at her ESPN Body shoot.
Her partner, UFC strawweight contender Nina Ansaroff is pregnant, with the baby expected to arrive in September.
So she’ll be keeping plenty busy this fall.
