Episode No. 554: Is UFC 289 the last ride for The Lioness?

Amanda Nunes returns Saturday to defend her UFC women’s bantamweight title against Irene Aldana. Should be a solid little scrap, though we’re not sure there’s any reason to suspect Nunes might lose … except, well, she is 36 years old, recently left American Top Team to start her own gym and has been openly talking about retirement since her feud with Juliana Pena. So, can Aldana pull the upset here and is there any chance this is the last ride for The Lioness?

Plus, Dana White reminds us Jared Gordon is not a doctor and did Kai Kara France get screwed?
