Amanda Nunes Team and Corner
Amanda Nunes has been a mainstay of the American Top Team since she joined the gym in 2014. This is where she also found most of her success and resurgence to become the world’s number one women’s pound-for-pound fighter. Nunes was guided there by coaches Mike Brown, Steve Mocco and Marcos DaMatta.
But this 2022, the reigning women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion split up with American Top Team to build her own gym and team, which she named after her – Team Nunes. Nunes’ new team consists of other top MMA coaches such as Kami Barzini and Roger Krahl.
Despite the team change, Amanda’s wife, Nina Nunes, will still be part of her Octagon-side team and corner during her bouts.
