Felicia Spencer has a plan
With plenty of mixed martial arts organizations postponing their May events, UFC 250 is still on for May 9, but many of the fighters on the card are expecting changes to made.
The biggest change would be moving the location from Sao Paulo, Brazil to the United States. If the UFC changes the location, Felicia Spencer is suggesting that the promotion moves the event to Florida.
Spencer is scheduled to fight for the featherweight title against dual-champ Amanda Nunes in the co-main event at UFC 250.
Florida recently held a regional show MMA show last week, making the “The Sunshine State” a possible landing spot for upcoming UFC events.
Both Spencer (8-1) and Nunes (19-4) train in Florida and Spencer is urging the UFC to move UFC 250 to Florida.
“@Amanda_Leoa we both live in Sun with rays Florida, let’s get #UFC250 Right-facing fistto our back yard🏝. Please don’t leave! @Mickmaynard2 @danawhite @ufc”
Felicia Spencer is the No.1 contender in the featherweight division. Her lone loss came to Cris Cyborg by unanimous decision.
Nunes knocked out Cyborg in 51 seconds to win the featherweight championship in December 2018. This will be her first featherweight title defense. Since becoming a champ-champ, Nunes has two successful bantamweight championship defenses.
