Although Pena won the last matchup, everybody is siding with Nunes in this fight. While Nunes is the big favorite, she lost one of the biggest upsets of her career in her last matchup with Pena just a few months ago. With the type of fighter Nunes is, I fully expect a bounce back from her and a big win. Look for a Nunes KO/TKO victory in this one.
