Read Time:1 Minute, 35 Second

Julianna Pena has once again called for a trilogy fight against reigning UFC bantamweight & featherweight champion Amanda Nunes.

Julianna Pena is keen for a trilogy fight against Amanda Nunes.


Pena (11-5-0) shocked the world at the UFC 269 event last December, submitting Amanda Nunes in the second round to capture the bantamweight championship. The pair had a rematch at the UFC 277 event this past July, this time Amanda Nunes would emerge victorious by way of a unanimous decision to re-capture the title.

There’s no other fight I can see. I gave her a rematch, immediately, within six months. It’s time for her to return the favor. Not much else needs to be said other than we’re 1-1. This needs to be solved in a trilogy fight. Let’s make it happen.” Pena said during a recent chat with Sports Illustrated.

Amanda was able to dig deep. Something I find really interesting is that, after she lost to me, there were so many excuses as to why she lost. For me, there are no excuses. I could come up with excuses, but I’m not here to do that. Let’s settle this fair and square in a trilogy.” she continued.

‘The Venezuelan Vixen’ is without a doubt one of the most prolific UFC bantamweights in history. The 33-year-old competed in and won the first-ever female season of The Ultimate Fighter back in 2013 to earn her UFC contract. She went on to defeat the likes of Sara McMann, Jessica Eye, and Cat Zingano en route to her first title shot against Amanda Nunes. Last year things went full circle for Pena when she coached The Ultimate Fighter opposite Nunes.
