Dominated an extended stand-up battle with the GOAT and made her quit. Unbelievable from as big an underdog as you'll see.

I kept seeing all week how "scared" Pena looked and I wasn't seeing that at all. To me, she seemed to genuinely believe she could win. None of us bought it but here we are.

What a gaff from Nunes. Was hurting her so badly in the first and decided to fu** around on the ground and gassed.

Quite the upset.

How did Nunes run out of gas so quickly? She's had a number of fights go 5 rounds before.

Was weird fight Peña seemed pretty tense in the first, threw a bit, then she just threw her hands in the second and they were landing, nunes ate a lot of punches.. reckon she was a bit shocked and just kinda gave up, that tap was piss weak

Wrestling for half of the first round and then standing in the middle of the octagon and awkwardly punching/getting punched in the head for most of the second round will do that.
