After a dominant first round, where she was smiling even inside the octagon, the Brazilian came back unrecognizably in the second round and began to “swallow” punches in a standby match against the American.
Obviously, Amanda felt the blows, and Peña’s blows that leaked the Brazilian goalkeeper increased.
Until Amanda Nunes fell to the ground, Peña applied a naked chokehold to the rear, slapping the Brazilian three times to end the fight.
This is simply one of the biggest upheavals in the history of sports. Peña’s win was a +650 payout in betting in North America. Whoever puts $100 into the US dollar earns 750.
It was the second biggest upset in the UFC title fight, having been the first in a fight between Holly Holm and Ronda Rousey in 2015.
Amanda Nunes was nearing an amazing reign in the UFC, racking up 9 consecutive wins, having lost for the last time in 2014 to Cat Zingano.
The Brazilian still holds the UFC strawweight belt, despite losing the bantam weight belt.
