Fighters lash out at Felicia Spencer’s corner for not stopping UFC 250 loss to Amanda Nunes

By |


Felicia Spencer was on the wrong end of a one-way beating from Amanda Nunes in Saturday’s UFC 250 main event.

The extent of the beating got a strong reaction out of of several fighters on social media, who thought Spencer (8-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) should’ve been saved by her corner before the fight went the full five rounds. Nunes (20-4 MMA, 13-1 UFC) won by unanimous decision in the pay-per-view headliner, which took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Did Spencer’s corner, or even referee Herb Dean, fail the Canadian fighter by not calling off the bout when it was clearly out of reach? That was a hot topic of debate during the UFC 250 headliner. Check below for fighter reactions on Twitter.

Corners need to stop the fight

If your fighter can’t win don’t make them go back out

After round 3 I thought the corner should throw in the towel. After round 4, my suspicion was proven true. Spencer is too tough for her own good and the continued punishment is unnecessary.
