UFC 250: What has been said?

Felicia Spencer insists she’s ready to ‘shock the world’ and take Nunes’ title at UFC 250.

She told BJPENN.com: “It’s surreal and it takes a lot to sink in to see I’m headlining a card. 

“But, I’m so focused on what I need to do and all the extra stuff I just take in stride. I’m honoured to be in the position I’m in.

“I love being the underdog. The more people who doubt me does not impact me in any way. If anything it gives me more motivation to perform.

“I also have no pressure on me so I’m ready to shock the world. 

“This is also not my first time being a massive underdog and probably won’t be the last. 

“Upsets happen all the time and I’m ready to pull off a big one.”
