After becoming the first fighter in UFC history to win, defend and hold titles in two different weight divisions, Amanda Nunes reportedly says retirement is a possibility.

The 32-year-old, Brazilian star defended the featherweight title at UFC 250 earlier this month, by earning a decision win over Felicia Spencer. After the win, the bantamweight and featherweight champ didn’t say she was thinking about retiring.

But, in a follow-up interview with Esporte Espetacular, the champ-champ reportedly said this (quote via MMA Fighting).

“Ah, I don’t know, I’ve achieved everything I wanted,” Nunes said. “I’m well, I can go on with my life, maybe a [take] new step, maybe find new talents, help some girls there…maybe be a coach, too.

“I’m in a moment that I can retire, you know, and I’m in a moment that I can fight. I’m fine. There’s nothing else to be done right now in the division. The Hall of Fame will come, for sure. My life going forward, if I do stop now, the UFC will give me every support I need to continue having my money and work.”

Nunes is awaiting the birth of her first daughter with partner and UFC strawweight Nina Ansaroff. The decorated fighter has won 11 straight fights.
