Nunes will face Miesha Tate for the UFC bantamweight championship title on July 9
Women's bantamweight challenger Amanda Nunes insists she's willing to fight anyone after her title shot against Meisha Tate on July 9 at UFC 200.
The Brazilian says she is not phased by other fighters division and is looking past Tate, who defeated Holly Holm at UFC 196, and onto some of the roster's more high profile fighters.
"After I get the belt, I will be well prepared to face anyone they put in front of me," Nunes said during a Q&A prior to UFC 198 weigh-ins on Friday.
"What matters the most now is the belt. Winning it, I’ll train specifically for each opponent, and I will be ready for Ronda, for sure, because she’s no big deal. She just lost, and will lose again if she fights me.
"Miesha is a great athlete, really tough. I know that and I know it’s going to be a war.

"She’s the champion and we expect a war. I will be prepared. Miesha has holes in her game standing and on the ground. She has never fought a girl that can end the fight at any moment. I can knock her out standing or submit her on the ground. Any mistake, and I finish her. She hasn't fought any athlete like this."
Nunes earned her title shot after three straight wins over Valentina Shevchenko, Sara McMann and Shayna Baszler.
"I don’t know why I gassed in my last fight," she said, referring to her decision victory over Shevchenko in March.
"I train at American Top Team, the biggest team in the world, and I have every type of training. I’m watching the tape of my fight and see what I did wrong. We’re doing everything so it doesn't happen again."
