Back on the show for the second time this spring, she is now talking with Colin Crandall about her upcoming title fight against Amanda Nunes in the main event of UFC 250 on June 6th.
Spencer, the former Invicta FC Featherweight Champion, was born in Canada, raised primarily in Florida. The twenty-nine-year-old fighter got started early in martial arts, training both Tae Kwon Do and Jiu-Jitsu by the age of twelve, eventually earning a Black Belt in both disciplines.
Spencer’s only loss came at UFC 240, via unanimous decision to Chris Cyborg, the current Bellator Women’s Featherweight Champion. Nunes knocked out Cyborg at UFC 232, taking her featherweight title.
Spencer feels she’s prepared to compete with Nunes in all aspects of the game. Wrestling could play a part, you never know anything can happen, even in the unlikely event Nunes shoots a takedown. Spencer is very confident in her stand up skills as well, coming off a first-round TKO victory at UFC Fight Night: Benavidez vs. Figueiredo on February 29th.
They went on to discuss what happens when you get an under-hook while out on the town with your significant other. Felicia gave her opinion on what she thinks fighting without a crowd will be like. They discussed the added dimension for the last several cards where fighters were inadvertently coached by the commentators who are normally drowned out by the roar of the fans.
Tune in to the latest episode of the MMA Power Hour on Fite.TV and Eleven Sports US channel to hear what else she has to say. Along with two more terrific guests who rarely give interviews, Burt Watson and UFC on ESPN reporter Laura Sanko.
