UFC 250 will answer the bell on Saturday, June 6 from Las Vegas at the UFC Apex facility. The original show was to take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil but was moved due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, the mixed martial arts world will turn its attention to Sin City once more for a massive night of combat sports.
The headline fight for UFC 250 is the Women’s Featherweight title bout as champion Amanda Nunes defends the belt versus Felicia Spencer. Twelve bouts will take place over the course of the early prelim, prelim, and main fight cards.
MMA punters will have a glorious night of betting on bouts. If betting on the main fight card is more your speed due to knowing more about the competitors, then you will have five matches to bet on. Like UFC 249, this weekend’s show will be held behind closed doors.

Women’s Featherweight title fight: Amanda Nunes (c) vs. Felicia Spencer
Nunes heads into the headline bout with an MMA record of 19-4. She is 10 matches unbeaten in the octagon and hasn’t lost a UFC bout since September 2014 when losing via TKO to Cat Zingano at UFC 178. Nunes is a two-division champion having won both the Featherweight championship and the Women’s Bantamweight belt. This will be her third Featherweight championship title defense.
Nunes has defeated some of the top female UFC fighters over the last five years including Ronda Rousey (TKO via punches), Cris Cyborg (KO via punches), Holly Holm (TKO via punches), and Shayna Baszler (TKO via kick).
Spencer is a former Invicta Fighting Championship Women’s Featherweight Champion. Saturday’s bout will be just her 10th pro-MMA fight, however. She lacks the octagon experience that Nunes possesses, but that doesn’t mean she won’t win the belt.
UFC 249 proved that the veteran favorite fighter can lose a major bout. Tony Ferguson was upset by underdog Justin Gaethje in the headline match of the UFC event having had little time to prepare for Gaethje. Nunes has had some time to get ready for Spencer but competing behind closed doors could see the younger fighter perform well.
Spencer is a career 8-1 in the octagon with her only defeat coming in July 2019 against Cyborg, a fighter Nunes has already beaten. Spencer did win her last bout versus Zarah Dos Santos which came in February of this year.
Who will win at UFC 250?
Nunes is the heavy favorite going into the fight at -600. Spencer is a long shot +450 as she goes up against a proven fighter in the octagon.
If Nunes can land her fist strikes early, don’t expect this bout to go long. She has been brilliant recording TKOs with punches since starting her nine-match winning streak. Nunes should prevail in the main event and hold onto the Bantamweight title at UFC 250
