After going on Good Day LA Amanda Nunes continued her media run with an appearance on Live With Kelly, which is becoming a regular stop for the UFC women’s bantamweight champion. Holly Holm visited the set with Michael Strahan and Kelly Ripa after her win over Ronda Rousey in 2015.
On the show Nunes demonstrates how to perform a rear-naked choke on Christian Slater who was co-hosting with Kelly Ripa. She is able to slowly go through the motions that can establish to some viewers that there is a process to finishing MMA fights and that there is a lot of technique and smarts that goes into winning.
It could be that the face of the UFC, at least in front of a mainstream crowd, could be the best pound-for-pound women’s fighter in the world. Nunes certainly has the personality to excel in front of the camera’s. Nunes’ ability to speak English will go a long way in terms of getting her sponsorships and on television more often.
