In the aftermath of her retirement from professional MMA, UFC fans want to know a little bit more about the personal life of Amanda Nunes. Here is everything you need to know about the Brazilians love life and who Amanda Nunes’ wife is.

Who Is Amanda Nunes’ Wife?

Amanda Nunes successfully defended her UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title against Irene Aldana at UFC 289 on June 10 at the Rogers Arena, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Nunes won the fight via unanimous decision, as was expected as the overriding favorite with the best UFC betting sites.

In the aftermath of the bout, Nunes ultimately retired from MMA straight away in the octagon. If this was the Brazilian’s last fight, then she couldn’t have gone out on a bigger high. Retiring as the reigning UFC Women’s Bantamweight and Featherweight Champion. What a remarkable career.

Outside of her life as a mixed martial artist, UFC fans want to know a bit more about Amanda Nunes and her personal life. Well, here at SportsLens we can reveal that the 35-year-old is happily in a relationship with her wife, Nina Nunes.

As with a lot of people in the public eye, Amanda Nunes and her wife Nina like to keep their personal life away from the spotlight. Nina Nunes is a former UFC fighter herself, who competed in the strawweight division for a few years during her time in Dana White‘s organisation.

The couple got engaged back in 2018, before tying the knot the following year. Over the years, the pair have maintained a healthy and happy relationship and have supported each other throughout their respective careers.

Prior to their engagement, Nunes and Nina Ansaroff (now Nina Nunes) met in the same gym and became best friends. The pair quickly hit it off and Nina became part of the Nunes team, supporting her partner in the later years when she became a two-division UFC champion.

Since then, both women came closer to each other and began a relationship. They are the first ever open same-sex couple in the UFC. It’s great to see that not only was Nunes winning inside the octagon, but her life outside of the cage is incredibly healthy too.
