The pair were set to face each other on June 10th, 2023, in Vancouver, Canada. While that may have been the case, Pena allegedly sustained a rib injury.
Their current record against each other stands at 1-1 after Pena had initially shocked the world with a submission win before Nunes retaliated with a dominant unanimous decision win.
In contrast, Aldana was set to face Raquel Pennington on May 20th, 2023, with the winner being in line for a title shot.
The news of Pena’s injury has, therefore, given Aldana an opportunity. Aldana is in good form, having won four out of her last five fights.
