” The Lioness” took apart Pena with her speed and accuracy on the feet in the opening round before putting on a clinic in the second.
Nunes scored three knockdowns in Round 2 as Pena continued to charge wildly while Nunes planted counter right hands on her chin.
The three knockdowns set a record for most in a women’s fight in UFC history. From there, Nunes took the battle to the ground as she opened up a massive gash on Pena’s hairline in the third round with an elbow from mount.
The cut would only worsen as the fight continued, leaving Pena a bloody mess by the end of the final round.

Leading into the two title fights headlining UFC 277 was a heavyweight clash between No. 5 ranked Derrick Lewis and No. 11 ranked Sergei Pavlovich.
Pavlovich entered the bout riding a three-fight winning streak, with each ending in a finish.
Of course, Lewis holds the record for the most knockouts in UFC history.
On Saturday, it was Pavlovich that scored the quick finish. The fight lasted less than a minute.
Lewis tried to close the distance and get inside Pavlovich’s reach but was met with punches.
A right hand hurt Lewis. After absorbing an uppercut, Lewis retreated.
Pavlovich went in pursuit and continued to land punches.
Lewis went down on all fours, and referee Dan Miragliotta stopped the fight as Lewis returned to his feet.
Lewis immediately protested the stoppage, and the crowd booed in disappointment.
Pavlovich extended his winning streak to four consecutive fights and will likely move into the Top 5 heavyweight rankings.

I was ready for this fight, and I worked hard to be here,” Pavlovich said over the boos of those in attendance.
” I did my job. I’m thrilled with my performance,” Pavlovich said when commentator Joe Rogan suggested that the fight was stopped prematurely. UFC 277 results
