BJPENN.com Fighters Choose Amanda Nunes vs Julianna Peña:
Chris Daukaus, UFC Heavyweight: Amanda Nunes in the 1st or 2nd round. She is too good for anyone else.
Stephen Thompson, UFC Welterweight: It’s hard to choose Nunes. However, it’s hard to stay on top for a long time, and Nunez hasn’t been in the bantamweight division for two years, so perhaps weight loss will reach her. Choose a pena to get rid of the upset.
Josh Emmett, UFC Feather Weight: It’s hard to oppose Amanda Nunes’ GOAT. She improves all the fights and can’t stop. You won’t see her lose to anyone right away.
Dan Ige, UFC Feather Weight: Nunes is invincible. I think she can beat a lot of guys, so I think she will beat Pena.
Eryk Anders, UFC Middleweight: Nunes by the first knockout.
Diego Ferreira, UFC Lightweight: I have to go with Amanda Nunes. I don’t see anyone hitting her. I know Pena is known for ground games, but I think Nunez is actually better. She’s good everywhere, but it’s a fight and anything can happen.
Randy Costa, UFC Bantam Weight: GWOAT Amanda Nunes. But what she wants to win is how she wins.
Andre Ewell, UFC Featherweight: Nunes. She doesn’t have a one-punch KO power, so I don’t know how Pena can beat her.
Vince Morales, UFC Bantam Weight: That doesn’t matter either. Amanda Nunes will probably stop in the first or second round.
Louis Smolka, UFC Bantamweight: Amanda Nunes. Julianna Peña is a cool and excellent fighter, but Nunez is at another level.
Fighters of choice for Amanda Nunes: Chris Daukaus, Josh Emmett, Dan Ige, Eryk Anders, Diego Ferreira, Randy Costa, Andre Ewell, Vince Morales, Louis Smolka
