Amanda Nunes Angry Because Of Higher Taxes Caused By UFC 232 Relocation

Amanda Nunes Is Frustrated Because UFC 232 Fight Card Was Moved From No-Tax Nevada To High-Tax California

Amanda Nunes is one of many unsatisfied fighters because UFC 232 was moved from Nevada to California after NSAC denied granting Jon Jones a license for fighting.

But unlike many other fighters, “The Lioness” is not frustrated because she has to adjust her travel plans. Nunes is actually angry because she must pay higher taxes in California! Look at her tweet below.

“Well… wasn’t expecting to pay California state taxes this Holiday season,” Amanda Nunes wrote.

Dave Doyle from explained that fighters would lose a significant amount of money due to UFC 232 relocating.

 “UFC 232 fighters are losing, depending on their income bracket, somewhere between 9.25-13 percent of their purses due to the card being moved from no-tax Nevada to high-tax California,” Doyle clarified.

Also, event relocation spoils plans between Nunes and her fiancée Nina Ansaroff too. It looks like someone needs to say goodbye to a new car.

“There goes my new car….”, Nina Ansaroff commented.

And here is Nunes’ response.

“Sorry 😐 love”, Nunes wrote.

Amanda Nunes, the UFC women’s bantamweight champion, is slated to fight Cris Cyborg at the co-main event of UFC 232. “The Lioness” moves one division up for this super-fight. If she wins, she’ll become the first female two-division champion in the history of UFC.

Some members of the MMA community suggested that Jon Jones Vs Alexander Gustafsson should have been removed from the UFC 232 fight card instead of relocating the whole event, but this idea didn’t come to fruition. Yet, if that happened, the logical move would be promoting Cris Cyborg Vs Amanda Nunes to the main event of the evening.

What are your thoughts on tax differences? Also, do you think Amanda Nunes will manage to beat Cyborg this weekend?
