UFC 277 staredown video: Julianna Pena mean mugs Amanda Nunes before anticipated rematch

We are just 24 hours away from one of the most anticipated fight cards of the year as UFC 277 unfolds tomorrow night (Sat., July 30, 2022) live on ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV)/ABC/ESPN from inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

TWO TITLES UP FOR GRABS! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sat., Nov. 11, 2023, with a re-worked pay-per-view (PPV) main card. In the ESPN+-streamed main event, former 205-pound roost-ruler, Jiri Prochazka, will lock horns with ex-Middleweight kingpin, Alex Pereira, for the promotion’s vacant Light Heavyweight title. In UFC 295’s co-main event, top-ranked Heavyweight contenders, Sergei Pavlovich (No. 2) and Tom Aspinall (No. 4), will collide for the interim strap after division champion, Jon Jones, was injured with a torn pectoral muscle and forced to withdraw (video).

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Leading the way will be an anticipated women’s bantamweight rematch between current champion Julianna Pena and former titleholder Amanda Nunes. The two first met at UFC 269 this past December as Pena pulled off one of the biggest upsets in recent Octagon memory and submitted Nunes in the second round. The rematch is expected to showcase the resurrection of Nunes as she tries to regain her champ-champ status, but Pena is looking to do anything to prove her first win wasn’t a fluke.

The two fighters squared off one final time at Friday’s ceremonial weigh ins (see HERE). Check it out in the above video player.

In addition to the headlining rematch, UFC 277 will feature a co-main event reboot between flyweights Brandon Moreno and Kai Kara-France as they duke it out for the interim strap. Moreno, who is a former UFC flyweight champion, defeated Kara-France via decision in their first meeting back in 2019. Kara-France has been on a tear of late and is trying to cash in on his first UFC title shot.

Finally, UFC 277 will feature a pivotal heavyweight clash between knockout king Derrick Lewis and rising contender Sergei Pavlovich. “Black Beast” has lost two out of his last three trips to the Octagon so he’ll be looking to add to his wall of knockouts while Pavlovich tries to earn his fourth-straight win as a member of the UFC’s heavyweight division.

Their final faceoff can be seen below:
