Julianna Pena vs. Amanda Nunes rematch is the fight I most want to see. Last time out was one of the biggest, top five if not top two MMA upsets ever. Repeat or revenge? Looking forward to Moreno/France 2 also.

That was a very strong rebound performance for Amanda Nunes. As opposed to the first fight, Amanda didn't let Julianna just dominate and get inside on her. Julianna was just too reliant on running straight at Amanda. You're going to get timed with hooks whenever you decide to run in. Now I'm too sure why Amanda decided to just lay her arms on the mat once the fight did hit the ground, but I guess it did up the entertainment/possible Hail Mary value significantly. I mean Julianna had solid control of Amanda's left arm like 5 or 6 times (including that one close armbar). I'm not sure why you would continue to do it over again and play with fire. However, Nunes managed to avoid disaster and control the backend of the fight.
