“The Peña rematch… with Nunes will probably be the biggest women’s fight of all time,” White said. “That rematch will be the biggest women’s fight of all time.”

When asked what is the biggest fight in women’s history right now, White said,” It’s Ronda Rousey and Holly. Every way that it could possibly beat it, it will. I don’t think it. I know it. It will crush that fight.”

It’s evident that the UFC president has some big plans for the Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena rematch. Plus, if everything goes well, we might be able to see them clash in the spring of the next year.

Dana White narrates his first meeting with Julianna Pena:

In the post-fight presser of the UFC 269 event, White shared a memory of his first meeting with ‘The Venezuelan Vixen.’ 

“I had my kids in some Jiu-Jitsu tournament when they were little and the first time that I ever met Julianna Peña. She walked up to me and introduced herself and told me who she was and she said I am gonna fight for you someday and I am gonna be a world champion when I met her. So, she’s always been like that… she did it, man. She did it in spectacular fashion.”
