In one of the most shocking outcomes in UFC history, Nunes retained her women's bantamweight title at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Saturday night.
Even though she had a knee injury and a C-19 in the first fight, Nunes stated that she would be ready for the rematch.
The second fight was dominated by Nunes on both the feet and the ground. Although Pena put up a good fight and even attempted a few times to be submitted, "The Lioness" held on.
During the first half of the fight, Pena was knocked down five times, but she showed her full arsenal in the second half. Using his elbows on the ground, Nunes slashed Pena open, revealing a blood-red mask.
Nunes won by unanimous decision on all three scorecards (50-45, 50-44, and 50-43). She has reaffirmed her status as the greatest female mixed martial artist of all time by winning her second two-division title.
Brandon Moreno knocked out Kai Kara-France in the third round of the co-main event with a vicious liver kick. In the third round, Moreno got himself into trouble when he kicked Kara-France.
Moreno's fourth fight will be against flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo. After Moreno's victory, the two met respectfully in the Octagon. It's going to be a great showdown.
