Julianna Pena earned an impressive decision victory over former title challenge Cat Zingano in the featured bout of last night’s UFC 200 prelims.

During last night’s UFC 200 post-fight press conference, Pena stated her case for why she should be next to challenge newly crowned champion Amanda Nunes for the UFC women’s bantamweight title:

“I don’t know what else I have to do,” Pena said. “I just beat the girl who beat the champion and the champion’s opponent. She beat both of these girls, and so with all due respect to Amanda, I’m very happy for you. Congratulations on your big night, but I’m ready to fight for the title and get what’s mine.”

The winner of “The Ultimate Fighter Season 18”, Pena, has gone 4-0 since joining the UFC ranks and looked fantastic in her victory over Zingano last night in Las Vegas.
