At a recent press conference, in a clip shared by the official UFC Twitter account, White said:
“Amanda Nunes is the GOAT. She has knocked out thirteen women. A few of them being some of the biggest names and the best ever in the history of the sport. Julianna Pena said she was going to beat her. Everybody laughed at her. Nobody believed that it could happen and she fucking did it. She says she’s going to do it again. So I am so excited.”
Dana White continued:
“I know what Julianna is showing up, what Amanda is gonna show up? How is this fight going to go down? When you talk about women’s fights, what makes this one so exciting is that both of these women can finish women. Have the power to finish.”
