And if it bothers Nunes, it will shake up the world of MMA, not just because it has defeated the G.O.A.T. combat sports for women, but she will have done it less than a year since her debut at the UFC.
“It’s a little crazy,” admits Spencer. “I feel like I’ve been part of the UFC for quite some time, and it’s only been a year since I signed and less than a year since I started.”
It’s a little crazy, you wonder how she manages to keep everything together?
“I’m really down to earth, and with everything I do in my life, I stay very busy and I have a lot of things I do, so that’s why I’ve been working for all this time and now that it is here, the work is not done; it just gets better and goes to the next level, ”she said. “I feel like it was a cycle: I realize my dream and then I have to continue and move on to the next dream. First, my dream was to fight for Invicta, then to be an Invicta champion, then to fight in the UFC and now to be a UFC champion, so it’s an endless cycle of setting goals, achieve them and set new goals. “
So what is Spencer doing for a recall with a win over Nunes?
“We will have to find out,” she laughs. “There will always be something else I want to do to continue and improve where I am. Maybe there is an opportunity that I don’t even know it still exists. When I started to train and fight, the dreams I have now weren’t even plausible at the time. So I don’t really plan that far. I just want to get there and then the next step will come to me. This is what I expect. ”
Either way, she’s ready for whatever happens to her.
“I know there will be big changes,” said Spencer. “I’m going to take some time off (as a teacher), and who knows, it could be longer. So I’m ready to make big changes and seize great opportunities. Otherwise, I keep my close friends and I stand on the ground. “
