Julianna Pena will look to repeat her jaw-dropping excitement over Amanda Nunes this weekend as the women’s bantamweight champion defends her title against the Brazilian in the main event of UFC 277.
Pena submitted Nunes in the second round in December and took the gold from the featherweight champion in what is considered one of the most shocking results in UFC history.
Now the American will look to prove her win over Nunes was no fluke as the ‘lioness’ seeks to reclaim her status as doubleweight champion.
The pair’s rematch follows another title fight pitting former flyweight champion Brandon Moreno against Kai Kara-France to crown an interim 125lb titleholder. Moreno dethroned Deiveson Figueiredo last year after drawing with the Brazilian in 2020, but the Mexican lost the pair’s trilogy clash to drop the gold this January.
