Julianna Pena shares her breakdown of UFC 277
During a press conference ahead of her rematch with Nunes at UFC 277, Pena shared her breakdown of the upcoming bout.
“At the end of the day, Amanda and I are the two best women’s fighters in the world. You’re literally getting the two best fighters in the world that are going to collide on Saturday night. I can’t tell you that I’m going to pull a rabbit out of the hat.
“I can just tell you that I’m going to stand there toe-to-toe with the best in the world, and I’m going to give my best.
“We’re going to see whose ovaries are bigger. I’m willing to bet that that is me.”
Pena on recording TUF with Amanda Nunes
Coming off recording the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter opposite Nunes, Pena talked about her experience and addressed Nunes’ trash talk on the show.
“Well, there’s two things. Number one, I didn’t realize she was talking trash until episode one aired and they had to subtitle it. It was such low volume that nobody could hear it.
“If she wanted to say something to me, if she had something to say, I was right there but I didn’t hear anything she had to say. I guess she was trying to poke at me, it didn’t work, she didn’t do a very good job.
“There’s some people that don’t like confrontation. I’m not one of those people, okay. If you want confrontation, you’re going to get it out of me. If there was confrontation coming on her end, I had no idea because she was saying it under her breath. Don’t be scared. I’m right here. If you have something to say, just say it.”
