The UFC 277 results have come to conclusion from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. Saturday, July 30, 2022 Amanda Nunes recaptured the crown and Brandon Moreno secured an interim title.
That’s right, Julianna Pena was not able to secure her first title defense when “The Lioness” took Pena to the clinic. In the second round Nunes dropped Pena on three occasions with strikes. If that weren’t enough Nunes found success on 6 out of 8 takedown attempts. Nobody was disputing the judges decisions on this fight. Check the impact to our top 10 Female UFC Fighters article.
Brandon Moreno will meet Deiveson Figueiredo after his third round TKO over #2 ranked opponent Kai Kara France. The fight was close leading into the third round and it was going in France’s favor until a Moreno liver kick found its mark and subsequent follow up had Herb Dean calling it 4:34 of round 3.
