Julianna Pena v Amanda Nunes II UFC 277 Betting Tips & Predictions

Amanda Nunes will still be furious and hurting after she lost her UFC women’s bantamweight championship belt to Julianna Pena back at UFC 269 last December.

Nunes won the title back at UFC 200 when she submitted Miesha Tate before adding the featherweight belt to her collection with a knockout victory over Cris Cyborg.

Nunes went into her fight with Pena as an overwhelming favourite, but she got a bit overconfident after dominating the first round. Pena hit back and got the win with a rear-naked choke submission to shock the world.

The former champion is determined to get her belt back and I can see her making light work of Pena in a way of sending a message that she is not finished just yet.

This will be Pena’s first title defence and all eyes will be on her to see whether her win over Nunes was a fluke, or if she is the real deal.

I don’t think it was a fluke, but I do think Nunes will win the fight. She will be annoyed that she took her foot off the gas after the first round.

Nunes has won 13 of her 21 victories by way of knockout, and I am backing her to knock Pena out in the second round and get her belt back.
