Are you able to ever get again what you misplaced … even when you win it? That is the query for Amanda Nunes heading UFC 277’s pay-per-view (PPV) major occasion tonight (Sat., July 30, 2022) contained in the American Airways Middle in Dallas, Texas.
The previous “double champ” appears to reclaim the ladies’s Bantamweight belt from the lady who beat her, Julianna Pena, in a stunning upset again in Dec. 2021.
For Pena, this can be a battle to show her second spherical submission win wasn’t a “fluke” as a result of — regardless of her strolling in because the champion — followers and oddsmakers have Pena because the underdog at +225 (by way of DraftKings).
Whereas that is not truthful to Pena — who waited 4 months initially to combat Nunes due to COVID-19 — that is what occurs whenever you beat a star and you are not one.
But once more, not a knock on Pena, she is every thing you need in a world champion, character, appears, expertise, grit, however is she a world beater? Can she beat Nunes once more?
It relies on which Amanda Nunes walks into the cage.
Is it the brand new mom nonetheless feeling the consequences of a serious life change, money within the financial institution and the holding results of a doubtlessly deadly sickness?
Is that this the world beating badass who starched the final idol of their division in Ronda Rousey, and pinata’d anybody and everybody on the street to turning into “champ-champ.”
I do not assume anybody can reply that query till the cage door closes and spherical one in every of 5 for UFC’a Bantamweight championship commences.
All I do know is that I am excited to name the fights and watch the motion alongside you as we rejoice my third 12 months with Fight Tradition! So pour a drink, inform a buddy, drop a few of that cash that do not chingle chingle, it folds and luxuriate in chaos with us as we commune across the calamity that’s cage combating, yet one more time.
