    Pretty sure Dana meant boxing?

    Obviously, Nunes' chances increases dramatically if she can grapple and submit.

    Still a lot of natural power difference. Serena and Venus Williams also looked like untouchable goddesses until they faced some ATP guy ranked sub-200. Then they got obliterated. It wasn't even close.

    And this is fighting. Nunes has probably never been hit full power by a 220 pound male who actually trains boxing.

    Love how all you guys take this so serious. This is actually a really well played comment by Dana. Basically avoids any real conversation about Paul fighting a UFC fighter by throwing out something so ridiculous that it ends the questions.

    lmao Amanda is not 140 at all. She was 140 when she was a teen maybe.

    Hahaha... 180 pounds!!!

    UFC 232 was in California. Nunes rehydrated and entered the cage weighing exactly 156 lbs for a fight at featherweight, sporting a Fedor-esque spare tire / muffin top at that weight.

    Jake Paul enters the ring weighing 200+ lbs.

    His 45+ pound weight advantage (combined with a much lower body fat percentage), his higher levels of testosterone, and his high school wrestling experience would be more than enough to beat Nunes in an MMA fight.

    Valentina Shevchenko recently said that Amanda walks around 80 kilos. I am sure she knows better than us how much she weighs.

    When will people finally understand that men and women are different? Amanda is the more skilled fighter. Paul is much bigger. Paul is much stronger. Paul hits much harder. Paul can take a much harder punch. The men's 18 year Canadian hockey team would beat an all star woman's hockey team without even breaking a sweat. People talked about Williams beating top male tennis players. McEnroe said he would not rank her in the top 750. An 18 year old top wrestler would throw Amanda around like a stuffed animal. Those are facts. Please let these silly debates stop.

    That's hearsay. Besides, fighters often exaggerate their own weight and the weight of their opponent. Shevchenko has obvious reason to grossly inflate Nunes' weight -- it would make her performance against Nunes appear even more impressive if Nunes outweighed her by 30-40 lbs instead of 10-20 lbs. That is why she exaggerated Nunes' weight.

    In the photo below, it was verified that Nunes weighed 156 lbs fully hydrated. She has approximately 30% body fat at that weight.

    At 180 lbs, Nunes would have 40% body fat. So if Nunes really walks around at 180 lbs, it should be easy for you to find photos of her with 40% body fat.

    Well if we compare the 2 pictures you posted she looks like a solid 35% there.

    If she is 35% body fat at 156 lbs fully hydrated, then she would be 44% body fat at 180 lbs.

    There were times when Dana said that Ronda would beat Floyd and I read on this forum by some idiots claiming that if the fight go her way, she could beat Cain, most of Conor's nuthuggers also believed that Conor would KO any HW...etc. So..., you see what we have to deal with here...

    There's a world of difference between sparing and an actual fight. I have no doubt she's sparred with guys who are good strikers. Unless it's Chuteboxe or some crazy ass team usually even the dudes sparing with other dudes tend to go light enough so nobody gets hurt A dude sparing with Amanda's going to go even lighter. If any of those dudes actually decided to spar with her like they were in Chuteboxe she would be knocked out. Yes Amanda could KO some Sherdoggers, no she's not going to KO Jake Paul. He's 60lb heavier and has actual boxing training with world class boxers.

    As for what he would do in the clinch with her he'd use his strength to outmuscle her. A solid elbow or a few uppercuts from him in the clinch would probably end the fight, or at least have her retreating.

    She looks very soft at 145. I doubt she cuts much weight / walks around much heavier. Jake Paul will have a good 60 lbs of lean muscle mass on her. He knows how to wrestle and box. It would be a fairly short fight.
    Different story from with a large male 145er. KZ reportedly is 172 lbs in training camp and lean. Still a big weight difference.

    You seriously think she would KO just some sherdoggers?? LMAO she would KTFO any of us easily.
    Have you ever sparred with a woman that can actually fight?

    As for the sparrings...when fighters are on fight camp, many of their sparrings are almost 100%.
    Even Fedor’s camp recently said that back in the day Fedor’s sparrings with Suloev and Aleks were absolutely brutal, and same goes with Nemkov brothers.

    Obviously a high level male fighter won’t go on Amanda at 100%, but my point is that Jake Paul would bring nothing that Amanda has not felt before.

    It is a shame that this fight will never happen, because I seriously I can’t believe how many of you think an amateur boxer like Jake Paul would have such an easy time with Amanda Nunes in a MMA fight only because he is a man and she is a woman.

    Dude Jake Paul has lot of wrestling and boxing training plus, apart from being a man, is way bigger than Amanda. No chance for Nunes in that one.

    He is a man. He is a big man. He is a strong man. He is much bigger. He is much stronger. He hits much harder. He can take a much harder punch. He has trained in various combat sports most of his life. And again he is a man. Venus Williams would not be ranked top 750 in men's tennis according to John McEnroe. Venus didn't argue that. Just because Dana says something stupid doesn't make it true. Hate to disappoint you but Amanda would get destroyed pretty easily. Women compete in women's sports for a reason.
