And when the fighting resumes, does she visualize fighting the winner of the featherweight title fight Amanda Nunes against Felicia Spencer planned for the UFC 250?
“To be honest, I really don’t care. We knew this Norfolk card, with Felicia on the card, that if it won, it would probably get the title. It is what it is. We knew it. So it wasn’t really a shock when they matched this fight. “
And even if it makes sense that Anderson gets the next strap crack after the meeting between Nunes and Spencer, the Australian doesn’t want to sit around for that long.
“I don’t want to wait because Amanda, after that, she’ll probably come down and defend her bantamweight belt and I don’t want to wait that long. So, fighting another two or three times, the title shot will and it will happen when it’s supposed to happen, and we’ll be ready. “
That Anderson wants to fight as soon as she is capable is not surprising given the momentum she has accumulated in her last two outings, while two emphatic finishes in the first round have put Anderson in great shape.
“I want to stay consistent. I want to keep getting better. I want to continue to accumulate these victories, ”she explains.
“I’m just bringing a different mindset. I’m in a different place in my life now. I feel like my best performance is starting to happen and I’m just going to improve from fight to fight. It’s just a slowdown in the trip. “
