Beats Nunes and quotes Nate “I’m not surprised motherfuckers”. Imagine Nunes beats Pena in the rematch quotes Conor “ suprise surprise the queen is back”. That will be epic

Juliana Pena just defeated Amanda Nunes.
Yes… yes she just did.
I say this ALLLL the time.
You HAVE to fight back. You would be surprised just what you can do when you actually bite down and fight back.
