After multiple postponements, the UFC 250 Main Event between Amanda Nunes and Felicia Spencer is finally set to get underway. Nunes will defend the UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship against Spencer in Las Vegas, Nevada, this Saturday night. Here, we look at the latest odds and best bets on offer at our top-rated UFC betting sites.

Amanda Nunes (-588.24) vs Felicia Spencer (+450)

Amanda Nunes (19-4-0) is on one of the most impressive runs in UFC history. Since her last loss all the way back at UFC 178 in September of 2014, Nunes has strung together 10 straight wins, consistently defeating the best of the best. That winning streak includes two wins over Valentina Shevchenko and wins over Miesha Tate, Ronda Rousey, Cris Cyborg, and Holly Holm. She has collected both the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship and the UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship along the way, and three of her last four wins have come by way of knockout.

Felicia Spencer (8-1-0) came into the UFC with a 6-0 record as a professional and has looked good in her first three fights with the promotion. She debuted with a first-round submission win over Megan Anderson before fighting Cyborg at UFC 240. While Spencer lost that fight by unanimous decision, she showed off her toughness by drawing blood and avoiding being knocked out by one of the most powerful women’s MMA fighters ever. Spencer rebounded from the loss to pick up a first-round knockout win over Zarah Fairn Dos Santos to earn this title shot.

Spencer gained a lot of respect for her gutsy effort against Cyborg, but at the end of the day she was dominated in that fight. Nunes is an even more dangerous striker, so things aren’t going to get any easier for Spencer in this one.

This won’t necessarily be the cakewalk that the odds suggest for Nunes. If Spencer can indeed survive the early onslaught that is sure to come, she may eventually be able to take the fight to the mat. Nunes is a clearly superior striker, but Spencer is a capable submission specialist that could be dangerous on top. However, getting into that position in the first place will be a tall order.

In reality, Amanda Nunes is the greatest women’s MMA fighter of all time and is still very much in her prime. Spencer has some toughness and submission skills, but it will take a sub-par effort from Nunes to open the door for an upset, and that’s tough to predict from an elite fighter at the top of her game.
