Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena went into a bloody war in the main event of UFC 277. Nunes clearly did not like not being the champion of the bantamweight division and came out to reclaim the throne. Amanda put on a dominant performance against Julianna to become the champion of the women’s bantamweight division once again.
Amanda defeated Pena via a lopsided unanimous decision victory after having rocked the Venezuelan Vixen many times throughout the five rounds. Amanda was never the underdog in this fight despite losing via submission to Pena at UFC 269 during their first meeting. Julianna was very confident heading into this fight but GWOAT came prepared to her belt back. Pena also had a few attempts at submitting Amanda once again but just could not capitalize on it.
Amanda Nunes defeating Julianna Pena at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas not only helped her reclaim her bantamweight belt, but she writes her name in another record to become the first fighter ever to become the double champ twice.

Many would argue that Nunes’ featherweight title holds absolutely no value given there are barely any contenders in that division.
