Germaine de Randamie Says Amanda Nunes Is Beatable
The former Muay Thai champion, Germaine de Randamie is slated to take on talented grappler Aspen Ladd in the main headliner of UFC Fight Night 155 this Saturday (July 13, 2019) from inside Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California.
Randamie made her Pro-MMA debut back in 2008 and came up short against Vanessa Porto. Her second loss came against Julia Budd in 2011, and her last defeat was against Amanda Nunes, who’s now a double champ of bantamweight and featherweight divisions.

“Yes, absolutely (things would be different),” de Randamie said. “I believe that’s the fight to make in a way. I’m very explosive, everybody knows that. I like to knock people out, Amanda likes to knock people out. She’s a wrecking machine, she is a true champion. I absolutely respect her, but I would love to face her again. It would be an honor for me to face her again. And even if it’s not a title fight, I would still love to meet her again in the octagon.”
“I agree she’s one of the best fighters, but remember: Everyone is beatable, and as soon as a person comes and beats Amanda Nunes, they are the GOAT,” de Randamie said. “One thing is for sure, at this point right now in the last couple years, she has been the best UFC fighter. Without any doubt. She has proven it over and over again. But she is beatable. Everyone is beatable. So every time when somebody gets beat there’s a new GOAT, right? She’s the champion, she’s a true champion, and she’s an absolute world class. But she is beatable.”
Amanda Nunes the last career loss came against Cat Zingano back in 2013 since then she has rolled over every opponent of hers. The only fighter that gave her bit of tough time was Valentina Shevchenko.
Germaine is currently riding on a four-fight winning streak and a win over Aspen Ladd will for sure land her into a title picture.
Well, Cris Cyborg also wants a rematch with Nunes, so let’s see how things play out in the coming months.
