Cris Cyborg Says Amanda Nunes Needs Her Because of Her Weak Brand

It looks like the first superfight of 2018 has finally gotten close to becoming official.

Dana White said it was the fight to make. Amanda Nunes has wanted it for some time…

“Amanda [Nunes] fought Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate with big pay-per-view numbers. The reality though is that the UFC promoted her opponents more than her, and after having to fight on her own brand she struggled to sell 100,000 pay-per-views against [Valentina] Shevchenko. Amanda knows my name sells pay-per-views and without it her brand isn’t strong enough to sell enough pay-per-views to reach her bonus incentives in her contract.”
