The title match was initially scheduled at the event of UFC 265, which had to be canceled as Nunes withdrew from the event due to the Covid-19 virus. In December 2019, at the main event of UFC 245, Nunes defeated Germaine de Randamie via a unanimous decision and was declared the new Bantamweight champion. Since then, Nunes hasn’t faced any competitor for her title defense. This would be the first time that Nunes would be up against Julianna Pena, who also aims to get her name on the record books.
