Amanda Nunes Recalls Her Shock Loss To Julianna Pena

Amanda Nunes looked back on her shock lost to Julianna Pena for the bantamweight championship.

The defeat ended Nunes’ remarkable 12-fight, six-year unbeaten record and her reign as a simultaneous two-division UFC champion.

Initially considering retirement, Nunes had a change of heart driven by a burning desire to reclaim her belt from Pena. 

Reflecting on that fateful night, Nunes realized everything seemed to align for Pena’s victory. She quickly acknowledged her mistakes and vowed never to repeat them.

“I know I could kick her a** any time I want. Confident in her abilities, Nunes firmly believed that Pena’s win was an anomaly and that she was destined to regain her title. Fuelled by Pena’s claim of superiority, Nunes was determined to return to the octagon and avenge her previous defeat,” Nunes

In their highly anticipated rematch, Nunes emerged victorious with a resounding unanimous decision. The victory not only reclaimed her title but also extinguished any doubts surrounding Nunes’ dominance.

While a trilogy fight with Pena was initially planned, her withdrawal due to a rib injury resulted in Irene Aldana stepping in as a replacement. Should Nunes triumph over Aldana, the possibility of a future matchup against Pena remains high.

“I’ll fight her again after this, no problem at all,” Nunes stated
