This Saturday night, UFC 277 will be held at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas and will feature a rematch between “The Venezuelan Vixen” Julianna Peña and “The Lioness” Amanda Nunes in the main event for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title.
Online UFC betting sites have created matchlines for every fight on this Saturday’s card, and the current moneyline suggests Nunes will retaliate and stretch the streak between her and Peña to one win apiece.
UFC 277 Odds for Julianna Peña vs. Amanda Nunes
- Pena +220
- Nunes -280
- Over/Under 2.5 laps
Julianna Peña rear-naked choked Nunes in the second round at UFC 269. So why are martial arts odds makers predicting such a clear win for The Lioness this time?
The comparison below shows how closely these two fighters fit together on paper.
Julianna Peña vs. Amanda Nunes Tale Of The Tape
Both combatants project personas that are in direct opposition to each other. Nunes is your typical MMA badass – the tail of the walk with a foul grimace reflecting her evil intentions.
The same does not apply to Peña. She is incredibly feminine for a UFC fighter, often styling her hair and wearing makeup. Of course, this doesn’t matter once the bell rings, but it seems to have had some effect on Nunes.
Online sportsbooks might think Nunes can’t be fooled again, but watch this video and think twice before you underestimate Julianna Peña.
Peña’s victory over Nunes at UFC 269 is one of the biggest upsets in Ultimate Fighting Championship history, with some betting sites offering odds of +600 on their odds of winning.
This time their +220 chances are much closer to equalizing. Stakes of $1 on Peña’s odds at UFC 277 rewards bettors with $2.20 net winnings.
There’s not much prospect of gains by putting Nunes’ -280 moneyline in action a bit, but if you agree with many MMA enthusiasts who think Amanda will run all over Peña, this is easy money.
Nunes vs Peña Prop betting
While there aren’t as many as other sports, there are a few UFC prop bets for Saturday’s fight that give a glimpse of how the fight could end.
