Julianna Pena did the most shocking thing she beat Amanda Nunes at 135 pounds and took her title. Amanda Nunes was being hailed as the greatest but Pena with no fear went into the cage at UFC 269 and by 3:26 of the second round she had squeezed hard enough to take the title from Nunes. A rematch between Julianna Pena and Amanda Nunes is probably on the horizon.

Cris Cyborg since losing her featherweight title to Amanda Nunes has went 5-0 winning her last fight in UFC to Felicia Spencer and deciding to go to Bellator MMA. Winning the title in her first fight Cyborg is now 4-0 in the promotion and has defender her featherweight belt three times so far. Looking forward to a potential matchup with Cat Zingano the last woman to beat Amanda Nunes before Pena did the same.

Right now with Nunes losing you have to wonder who is the best? Cris Cyborg has been perfect since leaving the UFC and Pena is on top of the bantamweight division. Cris Cyborg vs Julianna Pena would sure be an incredible fight and if Cyborg could beat Pena it would solidify her GOAT status proving she is the best in 2022. A woman who has proven to be the best year after year dating back to 2009 when she took out Gina Carano in one round and retired her, Cyborg is certainly great and eager to prove she is the best.

Cris Cyborg vs Julianna Pena would be an insane fight. Cyborg would be the favorite going into the fight at least at this point in time.

What are your thoughts on a potential super fight between Cris Cyborg and Julianna Pena?
