Julianna Peña Confidence Beaming Ahead Of Amanda Nunes Rematch At UFC 277: "The Torch Was Passed"

UFC women's bantamweight champion, Julianna Peña isn't lacking confidence ahead of her rematch with former champ, Amanda Nunes.

Peña spoke with reporters at Wednesday's media day for this weekend's UFC 277 event in Dallas, Texas, and explained why she's ready to move past her rivalry with Nunes after defeating her back at UFC 269 last December, but also won't be taking the reigning women's featherweight champion in their second meeting come Saturday night.

“The torch was passed,” Peña said (h/t MMA Junkie). “I snuffed it out. I’m ready to close this chapter, and I’m ready to move forward. With that being said, it’s hard for me to predict what’s in the future and what’s going to happen. I just want to live presently at the moment, and presently I have a bigger, faster, stronger, new gym, better mental-state Amanda that’s going to be facing me on Saturday night, and I don’t take that lightly.”
