Nunes started the match switching leads finding the most success fighting southpaw as she caught Pena coming in with short right hooks scoring a flash knockdown in the first round. The second saw more of the same as Pena came charging in wildly and Nunes twice dropped her with right hooks and a third time with a straight left hand. When Pena finally landed some good punches in the third round, Nunes deftly changed tactics taking the champion down and tearing her forehead open with vicious elbows. The rest of the fight saw her seemingly scoring takedowns at will and continuing to pound on Pena, who fought gamely the whole way but was just outmatched as Nunes recaptured the crown with a lopsided unanimous decision.
