Julianna Pena has accused Amanda Nunes of spying on her as their highly anticipated rematch at UFC 277 approaches.
This Saturday night, Julianna Pena will attempt to prove once and for all that she is the rightful UFC women’s bantamweight champion. She’ll be going up against Amanda Nunes, the woman many consider to be the GOAT, and the same person she was able to defeat at UFC 269 to capture the strap in the first place.
‘The Venezuelan Vixen’ is as prepared as she’s ever been to run it back with ‘The Lioness’ and in a recent interview, she actually claimed that she’s so far in Nunes’ head that the former queen has actually been spying on her.
“I just make her tick. I know that,” Peña said. “I remember catching her in her van outside of my practice, like, peering through the windows, and it was a long time before we finally realized that we were being spied on. We were like, ‘Hey!’ Then they turned off the lights, backed up, and sped away. I intrigue her. I obviously got in her — she’s thinking about me. That’s what makes her tick: me, in general.”
