Amanda Nunes opens up on upcoming fight win Julianna Peña
Julianna Pena believes she and Nunes have been on a collision course for more than five years. The UFC’s last remaining two-division champion disagrees.
Nunes and Pena are set to collide in the co-main event of UFC 269, where Nunes will once again put the bantamweight title on line that she won back in 2016. “The Lioness” has been an indomitable force since her UFC 200 submission over then-champion Miesha Tate and tallied five defenses of the 135-pound title and capturing a second belt at 145 pounds to become the most decorated female fighter in UFC history.
And when Nunes looks at her opponent’s UFC journey, and the dangers Pena brings into Saturday’s title bout, Nunes there says there is nothing which Pena possesses which she hasn’t seen before:
“Honestly, what Julianna has is just nothing to lose,” Nunes said Thursday at UFC 269’s pre-fight press conference. “So I just have to be sharper because I’ve seen her style many times in my whole career. Her best friend is Miesha Tate. If you watch Miesha Tate fight, it’s the same fighter right there. So I’ve seen it before.”
“She has to say what she has to say, and that’s fine,” Pena responded. “That’s part of the game. We’ve been talking about this fight for a very long time. At UFC 200, when she beat Miesha, she said that she would fight me — and she didn’t. She let Ronda Rousey cut the line.”
“You never were a contender,” Nunes replied coldly.
