Video: Who do we think wins UFC 289’s Amanda Nunes vs. Irene Aldana, Charles Oliveira vs. Beneil Dariush?

UFC 289 is right around the corner and it brings two massive fights at the top of the bill.

In the main event, the consensus greatest female fighter of all time Amanda Nunes looks to defend one of her two titles against Mexico’s Irene Aldana. The bantamweight title fight headlines the event at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on Saturday evening.

Will Nunes record the first defense of her second bantamweight title reign, or will Aldana become the fourth Mexican fighter to win a UFC title in 2023?

In the co-feature, former lightweight champion Charles Oliveira takes on Beneil Dariush, in a title eliminator. Oliveira is looking to get back in position to reclaim the title he lost on the scale at UFC 280 before being submitted by Islam Makhachev. Dariush, however, enters on an eight-fight winning streak, hunting for his first crack at UFC gold.

Will there be a new champion crowned in Canada? Will Dariush finally get his promised title shot if he can get past “Do Bronx?”

Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Farah Hannoun, Mike Bohn, and Danny Segura preview the fights with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia. You can watch their discussion in the video above and check out this week’s full episode below.
