Full Fight Card For Julianna Peña Vs. Amanda Nunes 2 Announced
UFC will head back to American Airlines Center, in Dallas, Texas this July where ‘The Venezuelan Vixen’, Julianna Peña will defend her bantamweight crown against the former champ, Amanda Nunes.
Against all the odds, Pena pulled off one of the greatest upsets in the history of women’s combat sports when she defeated Nunes in the second round back in December.
‘The Venezuelan Vixen’ entered the fight as a +700 underdog, with many combat fans and enthusiasts giving her little to no chance to come out victorious. But the Washington native lived up to his promise and sent a shock wave throughout the world of MMA.
Now, the 32-year-old is back again with another mission of proving her victory was no fluke, and she is capable of defeating ‘the Lioness’ again. For Nunes, it’s a matter of respect, and a win against the bitter foe can salvage the pride that she lost with the belt back then.
In the co-main event, the former flyweight champ, Brandon Moreno will face the in-form Kiwi, Kai Kara-France for the interim title to ultimately decide who will meet Deiveson Figueiredo for the unification bout later this year.
