Megan Anderson says Peña will have to dig deeper to beat Nunes in rematch

The women’s bantamweight title will be on the line when Amanda Nunes and Julianna Peña meet inside the Octagon for a second time, in the main event of UFC 277 at American Airlines Center in Dallas this Saturday (ESPN+ PPV, 10 p.m. ET., with prelims on ABC/ESPN/ESPN+ at 8 p.m. ET).

Peña (12-4) is the reigning champ after pulling off one of the biggest upsets in the promotion’s history when she beat Nunes last December.

Nunes (21-5) is arguably the greatest women’s fighter of all time. Before her loss to Peña at UFC 269, she was on a 12-fight win streak, including nine title fights across two divisions. She remains the women’s featherweight champion.

Former UFC fighter and current ESPN MMA analyst Megan Anderson breaks down the women’s bantamweight fight. Anderson fought Nunes for the featherweight title in March 2021.
