MMA pioneer Sarah Kaufman gives her thoughts on how a fight between Amanda Nunes and Kayla Harrison would play out at 145 pounds. 

Kaufman on how Nunes would defeat Harrison:

“Knowing Kayla’ style, Amanda would probably use her striking. Stay on the outside, use her strong hips. I don’t think you would see Kayla easily taking her down like she’s taken down some other people that she’s fought. I think it would be a lot more competitive. I don’t think it would be a easy fight for Amanda but I think Amanda would come out with the win without too much strain.”
