Before Julianna Pena faces off against Valentina Schevchenko in the main event of UFC on FOX 23 on Jan. 28, 2017 inside Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, take a trip back to see “The Venezuelan Vixen” make her Octagon debut.
After punching her ticket to the finals of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): “Team Rousey vs. Team Tate,” Pena collided with Jessica Rakoczy in the Finale on November 30, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
What ensued was a one-side beatdown, which saw Pena deliver a dominant performance and pull off a last-second victory, literally, thanks to some vicious ground-and-pound that forced the referee to stop the action with one second remaining in round one.
Winner of four straight, Pena will look to finally get her shot at the women’s Bantamweight title (or else) as she faces off against hard-hitting Valentina Schevchenko — who is fresh of an impressive win over Holly Holm — in the headlining act of UFC on FOX 23
