June 8 (UPI) -- UFC's Amanda Nunes and NASCAR's Kevin Harvick continued their domination this weeked in the only two active sports leagues in the United States amid the COVID-19 crisis.
Nunes (20-4) overwhelmed Felicia Spencer (8-2) to retain her featherweight title in UFC 250 on Saturday in Las Vegas. The top pound-for-pound women's fighter hasn't lost since Sept. 27, 2014.
Nunes took out Spencer in five rounds by unanimous decision at UFC's Apex. The event was held without fans at the league-owned Las Vegas facility, which is much smaller than the venues that typically host UFC fights.
Nunes landed 132 of her 222 strikes against Spencer. Spencer landed just 70 of 161 strikes in the bout. Nunes also had six takedowns.
"I'm defending both belts," said Nunes, who also holds the bantamweight belt. "I'm the greatest. I'm so happy now. I don't know what's next. But I proved it already."
Nunes is widely considered the best female mixed martial arts fighter in history. She has beaten every UFC fighter who ever had a bantamweight or featherweight title.
UFC continues with UFC Fight Night Saturday in Las Vegas.
Harvick increases NASCAR Cup Series lead
NASCAR's Kevin Harvick had a narrow lead over Joey Logano in the Cup Series standings before Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. He improved his edge over the field by 24 points when he drove his No. 4 Ford over the finish line first Sunday in Atlanta.
Harvick led a race-high 151 of 325 laps to pick up his second Cup Series victory of the season. He also won The Real Heroes 400 on May 17, the first race of NASCAR's resumed season. Drivers held a moment of silence and gave support to Black Lives Matter before the race.
Harvick had another tribute after the race when he held up three fingers out of his window in referencing Dale Earnhardt Sr.
Harvick won his first Cup Series race at the same track in 2001, three races after he replaced Earnhardt on the Richard Childress racing team. He also held three fingers out of his car window after he won that event. Earnhardt -- one of the best Cup Series drivers in history -- drove a No. 3 Chevrolet before his 2001 death at the Daytona 500.
"First [career] win came for me here at Atlanta and this is just a race track that I've taken a liking to,'' Harvick told reporters.
"You always have those memories and now you want to celebrate everything that Dale Earnhardt did for this sport. To come here and be able to do that with wins and go to victory lane is pretty special."
The Cup Series continues with the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 at 7 p.m. EDT Wednesday at Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Va.
