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.
