Once considered one of the top women’s 135-pound prospects, Amanda Nunes has fallen on somewhat tough times, going just 2-2 since January of 2011. In 2011, she fought twice for Strikeforce, knocking out Julia Budd in her debut, but then losing via TKO to Alexis Davis at Strikeforce: Barnett vs Kharitonov. More recently, she’s fought her last two fights for Invicta FC defeating Raquel Pa’aluhi by submission, but dropping a decision to Sarah D’Alelio in her next fight.

Shelia Gaff saw Sara McMann’s potential to be elite, up close and personal at UFC 159, falling victim by TKO in the opening round of her promotional debut. The loss snapped a three-fight win streak, which included knockout victories over Aisling Daly and Jennifer Maia.
