Julianna Pena fires shots at Daniel Cormier for saying she doesn’t deserve UFC title trilogy against Amanda Nunes

Read Time:1 Minute, 37 Second

Julianna Pena has fired back at Daniel Cormier for suggesting she isn’t deserving of a trilogy fight against Amanda Nunes.

Julianna Pena is currently 1-1 against Amanda Nunes.

Pena shocked the world in December 2021, submitting Amanda Nunes in the second round to capture the UFC bantamweight championship. In the rematch this past July, Nunes recaptured the title after defeating Pena by way of a unanimous decision.

Following the July fight, Pena has been very vocal about wanting a trilogy, however, Daniel Cormier believes she is undeserving of this.

The work hasn’t warranted an immediate rematch. Because if not, then every champion that loses gets an immediate rematch. It’s not like that. It just doesn’t work that way. Amanda got an immediate rematch, because she’s Amanda Nunes. Jose Aldo didn’t get an immediate rematch (against Conor McGregor), and he was the longest-reigning featherweight champion of all time. Sometimes you’ve got to move on to get back. I think Julianna’s in that position. I don’t know if the work that she’s put on paper warrants (it). Just because she survived in the last match, I think she might have lost every single round of that fight.” he explained on the “DC & RC” show.

‘The Venezuelan Vixen’ has caught wind of Cormier’s comments and has let her feelings be known.

Why you hating playa? You got an immediate trilogy with Stipe Miocic after he finished you in the rematch. You have more title fights in the history of the UFC. Dang, let me live!” she said on her Instagram story.

Cormier would later respond to Pena “Champ I actually addressed this today. Wasn’t supposed to come off this way.

Take a look at the full exchange below.
