UFC 277 – Severe MMA Staff Predictions

UFC 277 goes down this Saturday inside the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

In the main event, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Julianna Peña attempts to make the first title defense in a rematch versus former 135lbs queen and two-weight champion Amanda Nunes. After a shock upset in their first encounter, “The Lioness” will be aiming to regain her former glory while Peña will look to reaffirm herself as the best bantamweight in the world. In the co-main event, an interim flyweight title is up for grabs between no.1 and no.2 ranked Brandon Moreno and Kai Kara-France. Elsewhere on the main card, fan favourite and Texas resident Derrick Lewis takes on Russia’s Sergei Pavlovich.
