Julianna Pena is  focused on getting her belt back

The impression is that the UFC 277 event does not attract the attention that the UFC PPV events usually attract. The wider fan base does not show particularly great interest because the event on paper does not "knock us off" like some previous PPV events that the UFC has offered us in recent months.

Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena will headline the show with a fight for the bantamweight title. It will be their rematch after Pena took over the throne at the end of 2021. Julianna Pena used "trash talk" a lot after winning the title, and it was sometimes like that during the filming of "TUF" in which Pena and Nunes were in the roles of coaches.

“Honestly, it’s a strategy,” Nunes said on Thursday in Dallas, which hosts the pay-per-view event on Saturday at American Airlines Center. “She does whatever she wants. I feel like she knows what she’s doing, and I have to be in my mindset”.

During that press conference, Julianna Pena continued to play her role and shot several "poison arrows" in Amanda's direction. “Fedor Emelianenko has an aura, Mike Tyson, Dana White, they have auras,” she said.

“I don’t know about this aura that you speak of with Amanda Nunes. I’m not seeing it”. , said Pena, and then presented her forecast for the upcoming match. “Whatever she does is up to her, so I keep the focus on getting my belt back,” she said.

Asked for a prediction on the fight, Peña said

“I am going to punch, kick, pull her hair – I’m going to bite her, I’m going to gouge her eyeballs out if I have to,” she said. “I’m literally going to do everything in there.

Trust me when I say I am ready and willing to die. Whatever it takes, I’m going to do whatever it takes”. "Let's hope none of that happens." UFC President Dana White interjected with a laugh.

Amanda Nunes is motivated to show that she can do much better than what she showed in her last performance, and she said it once again.

“I’m the real Leo lion, and it’s Leo season guys, so strap up,” she said. “There’s only one lion in the jungle, and that’s me,” Nunes said. “That’s what you said last time,” Peña shot back.

We have to admit that the match for the champion of the UFC bantamweight category has not seemed this interesting for a long time, because Nunes has easily dominated for years. This time she is coming as a challenger against a fighter who easily defeated her a little over half a year ago.
