On wrong end of split decision
FeatherweightUFC

Spencer lost to Norma Dumont via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
This was another close fight, with neither woman able to pull away from the other. Spencer appeared to take the final frame, while Dumont won the middle round, so it likely came down to Round 1. Although she picked up plenty of stoppages (mostly submissions) in her Invicta days, Spencer doesn't really have the requisite skill set to generate a ton of offense in a short amount of time. She will have difficultly making up ground should she fall behind early on the judges scorecards. Spencer has lost three of her last four fights dating back to July 2019, although two of those defeats came against Amanda Nunes and Cris Cyborg. So if we toss those aside, she's 1-1 in fights in which she had an actual chance of winning.

Spencer (orbital/nose) will fight Danyelle Wolf in a 145-pound bout in May, Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Spencer will return to the Octagon for the first time since June of 2020, as she recovered from orbital and nasal fractures during a loss to Amanda Nunes. Now, Spencer's 8-2-0 at the UFC level. Wolf, 37, has experience as a boxer, but she has just one fight -- a win -- as an MMA fighter.

Spencer has been suspended a possible six months by the Nevada Athletic Commission pending medical clearance of a orbital and nasal fractures, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
While nobody will ever question Spencer's heart, she took a tremendous beating at the hands of the GOAT at UFC 250, so it's no surprised to see some mandatory time on the sidelines. She's one of few formidable options in the UFC Women's Featherweight Division, but may be held out of competition until December unless cleared earlier by a physician.

Spencer came up short in her quest for the UFC Women's Featherweight Championship on Saturday, falling to Amanda Nunes via unanimous decision (44-50, 44-50, 45-50) at UFC 250 in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's very difficult to get on Spencer for her poor effort because she was put into a near-impossible situation. Hopelessly overwhelmed against the greatest female mixed martial artist of all time, Spencer tried to remain aggressive but seemed to eat a massive shot from Nunes virtually every single time she pushed forward. In may ways, this was a carbon copy of Spencer's December 2018 loss to Cris Cyborg. Spencer looked calm and confident in the midst of a tough situation, but the difference in natural talent between the two was simply too much to overcome. Spencer is tough as all heck and deserves massive credit for even seeing the final bell. Most fighters would have given it up long ago. Spencer is questionably one of the better 145-pound female fighters on the planet, but the gap between her and the very best in the world is significant and noticeable, and it's not going to go away.
