The UFC returns with its next major event on Saturday as UFC 275 takes place from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The card features a double championship title.
The main event features a rematch for the Women’s Bantamweight Championship as Julianna Pena defends against Featherweight Champion Amanda Nunes. In the co-main event, Brandon Moreno and Kai Kara-France lock the horns for the interim flyweight championship.
Pena looks to prove the first clash with Nunes was no fluke as she took control late in the first round to win via second-round submission to score the monumental upset at UFC 269 to capture the title and the score of the shockers in the history of the UFC. Now Pena must prove she’s been unlucky against the woman many experts consider to be the most outstanding competitor of all time.
Nunes, who had a standout run, stopping Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm before losing to Pena that ended her 12-game winning streak, is looking to bounce back and become a two-time champion again.
Does Pena do it one more time? Can Nunes bounce back and win gold?
