  1. Julianna shouldn’t care. She said what she was gonna do, she did it, and she won. That’s all that matters. Did Nunes have an “off-night”? Well, did Cyborg have an off-night when she lost to Nunes? It’s possible. But if everytime that a betting favourite loses a fight we blame it on her having an off-night we never have to give credit to the underdog winner. Besides, Pena FORCED Nunes into having an “off-night.”

  2. Amanda could beat Pena, but Julianna’s confidence
    will be stronger, she will be prepared.

    When Amanda loses, it’s because she got rocked.

    She is not tough when she is rocked. That’s why she has that incredible opening minute. Julianna took quite a beating even though she won in the second round. Means she can really take a punch and had to be extremely tough and brave to win as she did. Many fighters cannot go through fire so lose decisions in fights the played safe and lost on their feet.

    Julianna is a deserving champion, but could easily lose a rematch. Winning the second time would be a great story.

  3. Amanda Nunes had an off night because Julianna Peña made her have an off night , Julianna Peña did exactly what she said she was going to do, to make excuses is disrespectful to Julianna , she has been calling for this fight for years obviously she knew something the rest of us didn’t . Julianna’s will and skill are the reasons for the victory.
