UFC champ Julianna Peña says Amanda Nunes “didn’t underestimate” her at all: “She just got exposed”

UFC bantamweight champion Julianna Peña has hit back at critics who think her victory over Amanda Nunes at last month’s UFC 269 event was a fluke.

Peña (11-4-0) shocked the world at last month’s UFC 269 event, submitting Amanda Nunes to capture the bantamweight championship. The result is considered one of the biggest upsets in UFC history.

Following the big win, many fans on social media, as well as fellow fighters, have expressed their opinion that Nunes underestimated Peña leading into the UFC 269 event.

During a recent chat with The New York post, Peña fired back at her critics.

I think Amanda was prepared for the best version of Julianna that she was gonna see. She was ready.” she said.

I said six months prior to the fight exactly what I was gonna do. I exposed her, and I even gave her the message prior to the fight that that’s what I was gonna do. She didn’t underestimate me at all. She trained her ass off and was adamant, in her mind, to win the fight no matter what. She just got exposed, and that’s kind of what it was.” she continued.

Peña is expected to defend her UFC bantamweight championship in a rematch against Amanda Nunes later this year. A date has not been revealed as of yet, however Dana White has said that he believes it’ll be the biggest fight in Women’s MMA history.

  1. You didn’t expose anything but that she STILL has COVID fucking her up. It’s A FACT! LOOK IT UP. IF THE REF HADN’T STOPPED HER SEVERAL TIMES IN THE FIRST ROUND, YOU’D BE DEAD, STOP TALKING LIKE YOU KNOW SOMETHING AND BE MORE RESPECTFUL OF THE TEMPORARY GIFT YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN. SHE JUST SET YOU UP FOR LIFE, DOING THIS STUPID FIGHT AFTER NOT TAKING THE NECESSARY TIME OFF TO RECOVER FROM COVID. EVERYONE WHO FOUGHT AFTER JUST 6-8 MONTHS OFF AFTER HAVING COVID, ALL LOST THEIR MMA FIGHTS THAT NIGHT AND THE NIGHTS PRIOR. ANOTHER FACT! THIS DISEASE MESSES UP YOUR LUNGS, HEART AND HEART RATE, MUSCLE STRENGTH FOR MONTHS. YOU KEPT TALKING YOUR SHIT AND SHE WAS FORCED TO FIGHT YOU WHEN SHE SHOULD HAVE SAID NOT YET. I GOT SICK FROM THE VACCINE AND IT TOOK ME SIX MONTHS JUST TO GET SOME OF MY STRENGTH BACK TO DO MY SMALL WORK-OUTS AND A FEW MORE UNTIL I FELT NORMAL AGAIN (8 MONTHS RECOVERY JUST FROM VACCINE.) IMAGINE THE DISEASE RUNNING THRU YOU. I LOOKED OK ON THE OUTSIDE LIKE SHE DID/DOES, THE INSIDE IS ANOTHER STORY. SHE GASSED, LOST SOME TRAIN OF THOUGHT, LOST FOCUS, ALL OF THOSE THINGS HIT YOU AT ONCE AND YOU CAN’T EVEN SEE OR THINK STRAIGHT. I HAD TROUBLE DRIVING AT RANDOM MOMENTS WHEN IT WOULD HAPPEN OR IF I WORKED JUST AFTER 4-6 HRS WHERE I USUALLY DO 12-14 HRS BEFORE I GET TIRED, I WAS GETTING DROWSY WHEN I NEVER USED TO BEFORE. THIS IS ALL COVID AFTER EFFECTS. THE LIONESS WILL BE WHOLE AGAIN, GOD WILLING (INSHAH-ALLAH) AND WHEN SHE COMES THIS TIME, I HOPE SHE DEVOURS YOU LIKE YOU DESERVE TO BE PUT IN YOUR PLACE.
