Amanda Nunes is one of the toughest MMA fighters on our list and accumulated an incredible 23 wins against just 4 losses over the years. She climbed from the women's bantamweight division up to the featherweight division and was announced as the number five pound-for-pound UFC fighter in the world. Nunes has amassed a record of seven wins in UFC title fights, a record which she broke. This insane fighter didn’t lose a single match since her September 2014 bout with Cat Zingano, where she was disqualified for illegal elbows.

She is an outed lesbian and had recently married fellow UFC fighter Nina Ansaroff. The fighter was also honored by Equality California for helping promote LGBTQ+ rights.
