Official fight card released for UFC 277: Pena vs Nunes 2

Amanda-Nunes-Julianna-Pena-UFC-269

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has revealed the official fight card for UFC 277 which takes place on July 30.

The promotion continues to come thick and fast with a parade of high profile fights spread across the pay-per-view calendar in 2022. While we’re confident there will be a lot to look forward to in the autumn and winter months, what can’t be overlooked is the remainder of the summer schedule – which includes UFC 277 in Dallas, Texas.

The American Airlines Center will play host to two title fights, as confirmed by the UFC over the weekend.

Many have argued that there are bigger, better and stronger cards that have taken place on PPV this year and even though that’s probably true, the weight of these fights can’t be taken for granted – especially in the main event of the evening.

Pena shocked the world when she took the belt from Nunes at UFC 269 and if she can do so again, especially after their season of The Ultimate Fighter, she’ll be making a real statement.
