Julianna Peña did what seemed impossible when she defeated Amanda Nunes in their first fight. But now, to secure her place as champion, she must do it again.
Cold open for UFC 277 arrives with voiceover Sons of Anarchy as well as Hellboy actor Ron Perlman, who teases the epic rematch between Peña and Nunes, who headlined the pay-per-view card from Dallas on Saturday night.
The rematch will take place after Peña and Nunes met as coaches last season Ultimate Fighterand it only added fuel to the competition to determine the best 135-pound fighter on the planet.
In the co-main event, Brandon Moreno is looking for another taste of gold as he faces Kai Cara-France in a 125-pound bout to determine a new interim flyweight champion.
With incumbent king Deiveson Figueiredo out due to injury, Moreno and Cara France will face off to see who will welcome his return once the Brazilian has recovered again.
Moreno had already defeated Cara France in a previous bout, but the New Zealand fighter will be trying to become UFC champion for the first time by avenging that loss when they meet in a rematch on Saturday.
Watch the cold stream as it kicks off UFC 277 pay-per-view on Saturday night.
