A UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship rematch between current champion Julianna Pena and former champion Amanda Nunes will headline this Saturday’s UFC 277 pay-per-view event. Pena was able to defeat Nunes at UFC 269 to capture the strap in the first place.
Pena recently shared that her game plan is to go toe-to-toe with Nunes in this rematch.
Julianna Pena wants to see “whose ovaries are bigger”
“At the end of the day, Amanda and I are the two best fighters in the world. You’re literally getting the two best fighters in the world that are going to collide on Saturday night. I can’t tell you that I’m going to pull a rabbit out of the hat,” Pena said at UFC 277 media day. “I can just tell you that I’m going to stand there toe-to-toe with the best in the world, and I’m going to give my best, and we’re going to see whose ovaries are bigger. I’m willing to bet that that’s me.”
“The torch was passed. I snuffed it out. I’m ready to close this chapter, and I’m ready to move forward. With that being said, it’s hard for me to predict what’s in the future and what’s going to happen,” Pena said. “I just want to live presently at the moment, and presently I have a bigger, faster, stronger, new gym, better mental-state Amanda that’s going to be facing me on Saturday night, and I don’t take that lightly.”
