Moreover, this season of TUF is special as two female fighters will feature as coaches after a gap of almost six years. Julianna Peña makes her return to the show once again as she competed in the 18th season of TUF. The Venezuelan Vixen dominated all her opponents in one-sided fashion and went on to win The Ultimate Fighter Season 18 tournament.
Speaking about the start of their rivalry, Amanda Nunes who is widely recognised as one of the greatest female fighters took on The Venezuelan Vixen in the co-main event of UFC 269. In this matchup, Julianna pulled off an incredible heist as she submitted Nunes in the second round to win the bantamweight title.
She shocked the entire world by outclassing Amanda Nunes who was on a twelve-fight winning streak. However, The Lioness will have an opportunity to get redemption as these two bantamweights will fight against each other inside the octagon soon. Although there is no exact timeline regarding their rematch.
With that being said, both Amanda Nunes and Julianna Peña are bitter rivals and share no love for each other. Their back and forth banter was on full display ahead of their first fight. Consequently, fans can expect some big fireworks from this edition of TUF.
