Shocking: Julianna Pea Destroyed Amanda Nunes to Become UFC Women Bantamweight Champion

In the co-main event of UFC 269 on Saturday, Julianna Pea did something that no one thought she could do. She beat Amanda Nunes to win the women’s bantamweight title.

After landing several solid strikes on Nunes (21-5 MMA, 14-2 UFC) in the second round, Pena (111-4 MMA, 7-2 UFC) secured the takedown, took Nunes’ back, and finished the job with a rear-naked choke at the 3:22 mark of Round 2.

“I’m not surprised,” Pena said after her fight with Joe Rogan.

T-Mobile Arena was the site of UFC 269 on Saturday. Following preliminary matches on ESPN2 and early preliminary matches on ESPN+, the main card aired live on pay-per-view following the preliminary matches.

Pena was knocked to the ground by Nunes’s heavy leg kick after they looked each other over for a few seconds and tried to figure out how each other worked. They kept swinging, with the challenger getting back up and taking more shots.

Nunes hit Pena with another big shot that hurt her and put her on the ground. Nunes kept going and tried to get Pena in a submission, but she couldn’t do it in the first round.

Pena had a few good moments in the first few rounds of the second round. With some straight punches through the middle, she clipped Nunes, who obliged her in a slugfest that lasted nearly an hour.

Despite the fact that Pena had a few good shots, Nunes appeared to take them all without hesitation and shot back. Pena’s left cheekbone swelled up as a result of a solid punch from her. Nunes was showing symptoms of exhaustion and was taking a lot of hard punches.

A takedown then made it easy for Pena to finish the job, making him the eighth UFC fighter in history to win a season of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show and a UFC belt at the same time.

Nunes, on the other hand, was very classy when she lost.

Nunes said, “I did everything tonight.” “I worked very hard for this fight.” Congrats to Julianna.”
