Pros react after Amanda Nunes dominates Julianna Pena in rematch at UFC 277

Tonight’s UFC 277 event was headlined by a women’s bantamweight title fight rematch between Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena.

Nunes (22-5 MMA) and Pena (11-5 MMA) had originally collided last December at UFC 269, where ‘The Venezuelan Vixen’ scored one of the biggest upsets in MMA history dethroning ‘The Lioness’ with a second round TKO victory.

That setback served as Amanda Nunes’ first loss since 2014 and snapped her incredible twelve-fight winning streak.

Meanwhile, Julianna Pena had entered tonight’s UFC 277 headliner sporting a two-fight winning streak. Prior to her shocking upset over Nunes last winter, Pena was coming off a third round knockout victory over Sara McMann.

Tonight’s UFC 277 main event proved to be a return to glory for Amanda Nunes. ‘The Lioness’ was able to get the better of Julianna Pena right from the opening bell and scored a historic three knockdowns in round two alone. The later stages of the fight saw Nunes control the fight on the ground while delivering some nasty ground and pound. After twenty-five minutes of action Nunes was awarded a much deserved unanimous decision victory.
