The UFC returns with another pay-per-view event this Saturday night, and this time it’s headlined by a rematch of one of the biggest upsets in the promotion’s history.
Julianna Pena vs. Amanda Nunes 2 is this weekend’s UFC 277 main event as the two fighters share the cage for the second time following their initial clash in December and an entire season of The Ultimate Fighter as coaches this year. UFC 277 is a PPV event, meaning fans must order the fights on ESPN+ to watch all of the action live.
Pena managed a stunning victory at UFC 269 when she submitted the bantamweight champion with a rear-naked choke in round two. It was an incredible performance by Pena, who entered as a significant betting underdog at odds of +700. On the night, she was able to pressure Nunes in a way we have never seen — ultimately exhausting the champion and overwhelming her. They’ll run it back in this main event, allowing Nunes a chance to reclaim her belt after what she has claimed was an interrupted fight camp before the first bout.
In the co-main event, two of the best UFC flyweight fighters will also battle for a second time. Former champion Brandon Moreno meets Kai Kara-France in a showdown between the #1 and #2 ranked flyweight fighters.
The UFC 277 fight card also features Texas hometown favorite Derrick Lewis and exciting matchups between Alexandre Pantoja vs. Alex Perez and Magomed Ankalaev vs. Anthony Smith. See the full UFC 277 fight card, fight dates, start times, and how to watch below.
