UFC 277 takes place on July 30 at American Airlines Center in Dallas. With 13 fights on a card brimming with some huge names in the mixed martial arts arena, including two highly anticipated title matches, UFC fans are going to want to tune in.

Must-watch bouts on the UFC 277 card include the women’s bantamweight title match between Julianna Peña and Amanda Nunes, two longtime rivals going toe-to-toe for that coveted belt. After Peña stunned Nunes in their title fight in December, both are out to stake their claim at the top of the division.

Also on the UFC 277 main card, Brandon Moreno will take on Kai Kara-France for the interim flyweight title in what promises to be a fierce battle. Kara-France is the underdog but comes in on a three-fight win streak since losing to Moreno in January 2021.

Julianna Peña vs. Amanda Nunes

The most anticipated fight on the UFC 277 card is the rematch for the women’s bantamweight title between Amanda Nunes and Julianna Peña. In their last meeting, the Brazilian Nunes suffered a shocking defeat at the hands of Peña, ending her 12-fight win streak and costing her the title. 

Nunes is going into UFC 277 hungry to restore her legacy, but Peña also has plenty to prove. The Venezuelan has refuted Nunes’s claims that illness prevented her from performing her best in their last matchup. “They got every excuse in the book for why I won,” Peña told a local media outlet. “My whole premise behind wanting to do the rematch was just to solidify that I am here to stay… The Amanda era is done. It’s the Julianna Peña era now.”
